“Just what we need now: A morally repugnant good-guy-with-a-gun remake of DEATH WISH directed by vessel of pure id Eli Roth (HOSTEL). – David Riedel, SLC Weekly

“DEATH WISH isn’t the film that it could be—this is a seriously missed opportunity on Roth’s part—but it’s also going to be an unexpected crowdpleaser and potential cult favorite.” – Eli Fine, The Young Folks

“Deconstructing that particular sort of exploitation in narrative fiction without tipping over into just doing it yourself is a really fine line to walk, and Red Sparrow definitely feels like it stumbles more often than it doesn’t.” – Bob Chipman, Geek.com

“Having the film’s protagonist be so lifeless and expressionless for two hours and twenty minutes is almost never a good idea.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“Believes the story here is torturous and able to beat the audience senseless, but the entire film ends up being just as torturous.” Sam Cohen, Substream

“If there was any question whether Jennifer Lawrence is going to go the distance as an actress, one only has to look at her choice of roles.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
