If you like James Bond type of movies with spies, double agents, corruption, America vs Russia etc. this movie may just be for you. Worth a watch.

Director Luc Besson took his original french La Femme Nikita and just moved it to Russia with another girl. The new girl is much more lethal. Besson is a really skilled action director. I guess he really wanted to revisit his girl from the streets turned assassin storyline again. No complaints because it was a fun watch.

Luc Besson falls apart.
The lovely Parc Monceau was dreary and bleak in the film, especially when none of a French was in the scene.

BOOTLEG LA FEMME NIKITA or BLACK WIDOW SNIPING...
I skipped RED SPARROW because I generally don't care for Lawrence, so this may be only
more of that. Don't care for Cillian Murphy either; does well enough in everything I've
endured him in, just don't like him.. Luke Evans I hate to think I give more credit for being
pretty, but does a fair clothes rod here... Mirren paying the rent like a re-branded Victoria
from RED... All through a MTV filter...
If you can't get this copy, go to the racks... LA FEMME NIKITA, the blatant rip off with
Fonda; POINT OF NO RETURN, SALT, and you can debate RED SPARROW, ATOMIC
BLONDE, and a couple Sci Fi Original caliber pieces called SILENCER and STILETTO... a
personal favorite would have to be EYE OF THE BEHOLDER; with Ewan McGregor, even if it
is Ashley Judd; more of a Tennessee Williams than an Albert Broccoli take on the genre...
I'm an equal oppurtunist when it comes to murder, or, DEATH BE NOT PROUD...

I know this is a Luc Besson film so I adjusted my expectation accordingly. However, I was still disappointed. This is no Nikita, which was a much better film for what it was. The transformation of the frail lead actress to a KGB agent who could deal with a dozen men in hand-to-hand combat is just not convincing, and the jumping back-and-forth in time is totally annoying and serves no purpose. Overall, this is a poorly directed and scripted action flick, again with the Russians as the bad guys in the cold war era.

Last time I put my faith in men, look where it got me.
-Never put your faith in men, Anna. Put faith in yourself.

So, it's quite the fairy tale you got going on here, huh? From a vegetable seller in Moscow to a top-flight model in what, six months?
-I sold Matryoshka dolls, not vegetables.

"It takes more than intelligence to act intelligently."
-Dostoyevsky. "Like a captive cast to the bottom of a deep, dry well, I know not who I am, not what awaits me. Yes, it's clear to me that in this cruel and obstinate struggle with Satan, I'm fated to emerge victorious. Then mind and matter shall fuse in perfect harmony. And the reign of universal will shall begin."
Hmm. Chekhov.
-Seagull. Act 1.
The play within the play.
-Your favorite play.

So would you be interested in becoming a model in Paris?
-I'm already busy here in Moscow.
By selling dolls?
-No. I'm in the university, studying biology.
No need to stop. We have girls at school all the time.
-I know nothing about modeling.
I'm sure you're a fast learner. And anyway, we take care of everything. Training, accommodation, visa, documentation.

Anna. It's been two months. Almost every day we've seen each other.

Your profile interests us. You have talents and skills that we can help you develop.
- Like what?
A sharp mind. Calm under pressure. And a certain amount of anger can be useful. Mostly though, you're a blank key, which means you have the potential to open many doors.

You're going to have questions and I'll answer them. But first, I need you to listen. We all have turning points in our lives. Most of the time, we can't see them until they're in our rear-view mirror. But I'm here to tell you this is one of those moments. Every intersection offers several possibilities. You just have to pick the right road. And sometimes, those choices have to be made quickly.

I was dropped in the Karakan Forest in Siberia. There are wolves in the Karakans. There are also wolf traps, buried in the snow. So I dragged a steel jaw on my leg for three days. When I finally got back to the camp, my instructor handed me a screwdriver, and said, "Trouble never sends a warning."

Girls who are too beautiful become a problem sooner or later. That's why we only hire the ugly ones.

I've applied everything you taught me these long years and now I'm out. I hope you'll respect that. And I hope you're proud of me.
-Bitch.
