To fight or to die, that is the question.
After an unbearable incident that leaves her unable to dance again, Dominica is employed by the Russian government, courtesy of her uncle, to become a spy, but soon her problems escalate when she realises there’s no way out unless you’re willing to meet an early grave.
Jennifer Lawrence grabs the head role in this film with both hands and refuses to let go, infusing her eager youth into her troubled character to produce an authentic performance that keeps the audience on edge throughout this exhilarating tale.
Though the colours of the film remain docile and somewhat gloomy throughout the European setting, the action and fast-paced plot enable an active engagement throughout, which is somewhat subdued by the over detailed dialogue between characters to allow for some subtle drama admid the chaos of action.
