Tell Us How You Really Feel: The 5 Most Hilarious Bad Reviews of “Atomic Blonde”

Hey, did you know there’s yet ANOTHER geek-related movie out this weekend? Me neither.

Oh right, it’s Atomic Blonde, the closest thing we’ll ever get to a female James Bond, since women can’t drink martinis or be Scottish, I guess. The film’s been reviewed well (currently certified 76% Fresh on review-aggregating website Rotten Tomatoes), but as always, there are Debbie Downers out to joyfully rain on the punching parade.

Listen to the latest episode of the AIPT Movies Podcast!

AiPT! has curated for your amusement the five most hilarious, overreaching, try-hard negative reviews of Atomic Blonde. Because true progress is being spitefully critic-slammed the same as everything else.
