Atomic Blonde is long, boring and predictable. The "twist" will be blindingly obvious for anyone who's ever seen this kind of spy thriller, the setting feels strangely underused and formless given how interesting it could have been, none of the characters are really all that sympathetic or interesting, though the great cast does help a bit in that regard... In a few words, it tried to be "John Wick but a chick", but ended up biting more than it could chew.
Yes, the fight scenes are fantastic, the soundtrack is wonderful, the visuals are mesmerizing... But I wouldn't recommend giving the movie a watch, you'll most likely be bored out of your skull. Watch a compilation of the fight scenes on Youtube, give the soundtrack a good listen, use some screencaps as your computer wallpaper. But don't sit through two hours of a confusing, clichéd plot.
