Atomic Blonde or Red Sparrow?

Looking to watch one of these recent female driven spy type movies. they seem different and similar at the same time. will see both eventually, but couldn't decide which to pick for tonight or very immediate future.

so which one is more fun to those that have seen both?

Red Sparrow was fucking awful outside of seeing Lawrence's boobs. Atomic Blonde all the way.

Should've seen Atomic Blonde in the theater. Hearing Bowie's Cat People almost brought tears to my eyes.

That scene where she was standing naked (maybe a double) near the table is all I remember.

Havenít seen either but Atomic Blonde for the boys. I like Theron better than Lawrence as well.

I dunno, I was bored by Blonde but I thought Sparrow had an appealingly nasty edge to it that made it more memorable, so I'll be the lone vote in favour of it. Neither were Citizen Kane but I'd watch Sparrow again sometime.

I've seen Atomic Blonde and it was horrible. I haven't seen Red Sparrow but haven't bothered becuase I would expect the same.

If these are the two choices, watch that Melissa McCarthy classic Spy. At least youíll intentionally laugh.

Thereís no guarantee with that. I was disappointed in Spy as well.

Maybe if youíre in the mood for Theron, try Long Shot. Not a spy movie but itís funny.

Atomic Blonde all the way (Theron and great music)... I'd go with Salt next... and never Red Sparrow.

Re: Atomic Blonde or Red Sparrow?

there were two good scenes in Red Sparrow, the end of her last ballet performance and the topless scene. Otherwise essentially a really terrible movie. Atomic Blonde was OK, I prefer Salt to either of them.

Ditto. I didn't enjoy Red Sparrow at all. Atomic Blonde I don't remember much of, but I do know it didn't bore me like RS did.

Re: Atomic Blonde or Red Sparrow?

I have to paraphrase what a critic said about the Lucy Liu stinker "Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever".

Red Sparrow: They had Jennifer Lawrence sitting spread-eagle on a table asking "Do you wanna fuck me?", and they still couldn't get people to see it.

(The Ballistic review said they had Lucy Liu in skin-tight leather and still couldn't get people to see it)

Damn, I thought I missed something when I saw Ballistic.
