Thirty minutes into the film and I found myself getting bored, nothing about the movies or the actors and the actress in the movie were good enough to keep my attention.

Lawrence really likes to show her butt. Interesting movie though.

This movie proves that it is really hard to make a good movie. Dull.

Pseudo-Russian Femme Nikita with a whiff of Black Swan? A mostly-wasted Brit cast: Irons, Rampling, Richardson (one of Vanessa's daughters/nieces?), all playing Russian; Schoennaerts would make a great Poutine in a Putin biopic. Star J.Law pretty good in her opening ballet sequence (lots of editing, watch Polina instead for real dance) and did a 99% full monty for dir. Lawrence (no relation?). The nasty action sequences pretty good; watch Hungarian film Kills on Wheels and compare.

Great spy movie with a interesting twist.
Ms. Lawrence is a terrific actress, I love all her movies.

An intricate spy thriller with a stunning twist though the actors were unconvincing in their roles: JL as the Bolshoi prima, Rampling and Irons as deep rooted Russians.

Interesting notes from wiki:

Matthews (author of the book), a former member of the CIA, advised the production on the depiction of spying. Based on historic Soviet "sexpionage" and contemporary Russian use of kompromat (compromising material), filming took place in Hungary, Slovakia and Austria. Jennifer Lawrence studied with the New York City Ballet to prepare for her performance.

"I've seen all of ms. Lawrence on the internet, in the library, on the library computers. Yet, to see her acting in her latest film effort, I have to be #1000 in line. that's if I sign up to hold that place, immediately. seems a little bizarre, actually. the clock is ticking. if I don't click in the correct place, soon, I will be later than 1000. what a conundrum. what an irony. what a cunnie. hence, the five star rating.
