In the James Bond films, sex with a globe-trotting spy seems to be fun, fun, fun.Not so in the new thriller "Red Sparrow," where the sex is cold, ugly and often violent."Hunger Games" director Francis Lawrence reunites with Lawrence for more adult fare – one likely to be remembered more for the outdoor junket photos of Lawrence in a thigh-slit dress in chilly London while her male co-creators wore coats.Based on a book by former CIA agent Jason Matthews, "Red Sparrow" centers on Dominika (Lawrence), a Moscow ballerina who has to rethink her career after a devastating injury. Lawrence gives her all here, from learning ballet – daily, three-hour rehearsals for three months – to adopting a Russian accent reminiscent of that of Natasha from "Rocky and Bullwinkle"."Red Sparrow" takes place in the languid, rich air of old European capitals and it gains no energy from the mostly – and curiously empty – high-end restaurants, hospitals and swimming pools.It takes hours, and that might be more fun than sitting through "Red Sparrow"."Red Sparrow" is screening in Beirut-area cinemas.
