This wasn't even on my radar until I saw the trailer before F8 last weekend. Looks fun, but not something I will see in theaters.

That's a lot better than I expected it to be.

saw it today. best movie ever!
It is a really different type of spy movie, and I love it because of that. The movie played a lot of music of that time and was great. I thought the fighting scenes were great, since they were very real. The one scene she was fighting a lot of people, and she acted tried probably what a normal spy would be like, instead of how a lot of movies make them seem very invisible.

This came out on digital last week. It was better than I thought it would be, but it had the most convoluted plots of 2017. Double, triple agents. It made no sense to me at the end, but luckily the action and music kept me entertained enough.

Atomic Blonde = John Wick - some shooting violence + confusing plot + more hand-to-hand combat + a lot sexier

There was a single take scene (which obviously wasn't a true single take, but the effect worked) that was worth the price of admission alone. Like HussBuss said, the fighting was believable because people actually got tired and Charlize Theron had to use her body creatively to beat the guys that were 100lbs bigger than her.

I eventually read the Plot on Wikipedia and it helped clear up some of the confusion. I still think the story was overly complicated though.
