I'd pay to see it again. Wife loved it too, which is surprising because right in the middle there is a super hot girl-on-girl scene that she normally pretends to be put off by. Plot is a little hard to follow, so I recommend just reading the Wikipedia page of the plot before you go, then relax and enjoy the visuals and soundtrack.

How's it compare to Baby Driver?

This is available On Demand now from FIOS. We watched it Friday night.

Fucking fabulous. Sort of like Charlize Wick bulldozes her way thru a John LeCarre story, set in Berlin in the late 80s right before the fall of the Berlin Wall, with a soundtrack very very heavy on 80s Euro New Wave. 99 Lufte Balloons, Der Komissar, etc etc. With a hotter-than-average girl-on-girl scene smack in the middle of the movie.

Jesus, re-reading that description, no wonder I liked it. The other girl is the blade-runner chick from Kingsman 1, also she played The Mummy in the Tom Cruise movie. At least one of the bad guys from John Wick also fights Charlize in this one: the dude from the Red Circle, who threw Keanu off the balcony to the ground floor of the club.

The fight scene in the stairwell is epic. Would absolutely watch it again just for that.

This was pretty good. Theron is aging extremely well.
