Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to 'Sparrow School,' a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. Her first mission, targeting a C.I.A. agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations.
A gritty crime saga which follows the lives of an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff's Dept. and the state's most successful bank robbery crew as the outlaws plan a seemingly impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank.

12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11; under the leadership of a new captain, the team must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban.
A young Russian intelligence officer is assigned to seduce a first-tour CIA agent who handles the CIA's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young officers collide in a charged atmosphere of trade-craft, deception, and inevitably forbidden passion that threatens not just their lives but the lives of others as well.
Russian president Vladimir Putin is a key figure in the book on which the movie is based. However, Fox decided to cut him out of the film adaptation. When Fox exec Emma Watts optioned the book in 2013, she shifted the story from modern-day Russia to 1970s Budapest, nominally to give it a more "timeless" feel - and though Putin has a key role in the book, he was dropped. Then, after Frances Lawrence came aboard as director, Watts shifted the story back to the present day. Despite the explosion of interest in the Kremlin following the (2016) U.S. election, Putin's character was not restored. Insiders describe the moves as "creative choices," but by avoiding Putin, Fox also is steering clear of any Russian hackers who might protest. See more »

I wasn't going to bother rating this poor excuse for a film but now that i see an odd influx of high ratings (while the movie flops at the box office), and that there is a downvote offensive being played out on all the low ratings, i felt the need to chime in.
I just paid to sit through this POS and I only have one thing to say: Do not pay money to watch this garbage in the cinema. I repeat, save your money. You will regret it. It's so jaw droppingly bad that you will genuinely wonder if you are being Punked. You will feel ripped off and want to walk out.
Please read all the critics reviews before handing over any cash. I would go into just how bad it is, but others on here and other websites have already done so and I don't want to waste any more time on this D grade pulp propaganda masquerading as a modern blockbuster "spy thriller".
