Atomic Blonde (2017) Movie Review - Mystery Thriller - Hollywood

Director: David Leitch
Genre(s): Action, Mystery, Thriller
Rating: 3/5

The crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.

In a nutshell: Atomic Blonde is about a badass, bisexual British secret agent who fights like John Wick and seduces like James Bond who travels to Germany days before the fall of the Berlin Wall to recover some stolen intelligence. She wears a number of amazing outfits, kills a whole bunch of bad guys, and just looks terrific as she struts through noisy nightclubs and desolate alleyways to a soundtrack of ’80s synth pop. It is excellent, two-fisted entertainment and further proof that Charlize Theron is one of our great modern action heroes. Readmore

The shortcomings of Atomic Blonde‘s screenplay prevent it from realizing its full potential, but the film still makes for a solid time at the theater. Action fans will surely get a kick out of what Leitch and Theron have in store, hoping that the director will handle the set pieces for Deadpool 2 with similar panache. Readmore
