Movie Info

A high-stakes, global action-thriller that takes place in the city of Berlin, on the eve of the Wall's collapse and the shifting of superpower alliances. Charlize Theron ("Mad Max: Fury Road") portrays Lorraine Broughton, a top-level spy for MI6, who is dispatched to Berlin to take down a ruthless espionage ring that has just killed an undercover agent for reasons unknown. She is ordered to cooperate with Berlin station chief David Percival (James McAvoy of "X-Men"), and the two form an uneasy alliance, unleashing their full arsenal of skills in pursuing a threat that jeopardizes the West's entire intelligence operation.

Atomic Blonde is a story of a hidden dealings and murky agendas, but only one certainty: On the heels of her scene-stealing moments in Mad Max, Theron's action stardom is now anything but secret.

As enjoyable as Atomic Blonde can be at times, its main utility may be its demonstration that Theron deserves better than this.

So much uncut hardboiled posturing proves exhausting over a nearly two-hour runtime, and with zero emotional stakes and a plot that is both difficult and seemingly pointless to follow, there's a fundamental emptiness behind all the flash.

Thank you for finally making LGBT action, and not making it exploitive.

It may not be the deepest modern action film we've seen, but Theron absolutely fricking rules in Atomic Blonde.

Daily Dead

Theron is the hero we need right now: As devilishly self-serving and smooth as Bond, as physically dynamic and stoic as Wick, Lorraine is confidently equipped to join the legacy of great movie action heroes and she doesn't need your permission.
