The movie sets several missions for itself - one is quite noble, such as the notion that violence against women is never ok. Her only mystical superpower, it seems, is her body - one that every man, regardless of status, rank or upbringing, is eager to have, because you know Apparently, objectifying Lawrence is what female empowerment is all about.
Red Sparrow is part of a compound assault on the Russian people: modern mainstream news and satire cover the political side of things, while films like this try to dehumanize through attacks on society - often by taking bits of truth and cleverly distorting and exaggerating them in order to foster believability.

At one point we see an entire part of Moscow completely computer-generated, seemingly for the sole purpose of inducing a sort of brutalist architectural agoraphobia.

With a simple packet sniffer , such as Nmap , the FBI out-geek the spies and monitor the exchange. They were probably lulled into a sense of false security. Techies roll their eyes: How gauche! They should have known better than to reuse the same addresses. Mac address spoofing is so easy!
The Straight Story
With address spoofing you can make up hardware identifiers at will. Nothing necessarily nefarious, here, Powerline Ethernet adapters do it all the time. The word is the same in Russian: Idiots.
