GenreThriller
LanguageInfrequent, moderate impact.
NudityFairly frequent, moderate impact (the scenes are in both sexual and non-sexual context, eg a scene of a male character's frontal shot with his genitalia is noted).
SexNone (sic)
ViolenceFrequent, strong to very strong impact (gratuitous and graphic scenes of violence. The violence scenes are also physical and psychological.)
PrejudiceNone

Drug abuseNone
CommentsThe material contains complex and mature themes presented in a thriller context, interrogating issues of spying, dancing, duplicity, espionage, deception, gaining valuable information, family relations, corruption, investigations, betrayal, revenge, sacrifice, manipulation, trust, intelligence, power and control. The thriller is laced with a strong sense of threat and menace. Sustained themes of suspense and mystery are filled with tense psychological tones. The themes also have the potential to inflict harm morally and emotionally, therefore they would be disturbing, distressing and confusing to the younger viewers as they do not yet have the ability of masking sense of such themes on their own. e.g. Themes such as sexual manipulation would be prematurely exposing children to adult experiences and negatively influence their attitudes and behaviour by morally misleading them. Therefore, viewers under the age of 18 are prohibited from viewing the material.

Cape Argus / The Star
Jamal-Dean Grootboom quote icon'Red Sparrow' makes messy hotbed.

Ilan Preskovsky quote iconDespite its mainstream marketing, Red Sparrow is more or less an arthouse film and is all but guaranteed to turn off anyone simply looking for an entertaining spy flick. Personally, I was pleasantly surprised by how gripping I found it, how audacious it was at times and how, days later, it continues to linger with me.

Tomatometer quote iconRed Sparrow's tense, character-driven story -- elevated by outstanding work from Jennifer Lawrence -- help this topical spy thriller overcome its somewhat uneven narrative.
