REVIEW

You know how movies sometimes conceptually come in pairs- Shark Tales and Finding Nemo, Happy Feet and Surf's Up? Atomic Blonde is the twin to Baby Driver. Unfortunately it's not the good one. Baby Driver is a musical heist movie(a great one) while Atomic Blonde is an unintentional(I think) musical spy movie. I enjoyed the action, Charlize Theron was great, and the double twist in the end was interesting. Overall though the music is just a bit too distracting instead of enhancing with a plot that is a little too dry for my taste. Worth a stream or a rent if you enjoy spy movies though and to watch Charlize do some impressively long fight scenes.
