Atomic Blonde is spy thriller about Lorraine Broughton, a stylish and couture clad top-level M16 spy who is sent to Berlin to take down an espionage ring that is ruthless and that has just killed two undercover agents for unknown reasons. The movie is a high-stakes action-thriller that takes place in the city of Berlin during the 80’s on the eve of the Berlin Wall’s collapse.
Lorraine Broughton was ordered to cooperate with alpha-male David Percival, the station chief in Berlin; the two must form alliance to stop the threat that would jeopardize the West’s intelligence operation.
The movie is very entertaining with a very good soundtrack, dark and very stylish. It is engaging with a lot of twists and double crosses. It has lots of action and very brutal. It is your typical action movie where the fights are very scripted and choreographed but this time the action star is a very stylish woman clad in expensive couture clothes.
The plot is easy to follow to the point of being predictable but has a surprise ending. The first half of the movie is a bit slow but it picked up at the middle. It is not a perfect movie and the violence is extremely brutal, but overall it is very entertaining; the protagonists, soundtrack and the dark and cold Berlin backdrop right before the fall of the Wall adorns the movie enough to be entertaining. Charlize Theron’s performance is a five star out of five.
It stars Charlize Theron as Lorraine Broughton, James McAvoy as David Percival, John Goodman as a CIA agent, Sofia Boutella as Deflfine, directed by David Leitch, written by Johnstad from Focus Featuresd.
