A Fantastic Action Romp - Atomic Blonde review by PT

Spoiler Alert

There is a fight scene where Lorraine Broughton ( Charlize Theron) fights with assassins in a building that is worth the price of a movie seat alone. This incredible scene, lasting for the best part of 10 minutes, sees the heroine fighting off assassins on a stairwell, with the action continuing in a room of the building, before continuing in a car in the street. All the more remarkable, as it seems to be done in one take. I did read that Leitch used some clever cuts, although it is basically a one take. There is a great realism to this fight scene, in the palpable pain of all, plus their breathlessness.

The film begins with the murder of an MI6 agent in Berlin. The organisation brings in Lorraine Broughton, a mysterious, hard drinking, chain smoking agent to clean up, if killing loads of people can be called cleaning up. She is also given the task of retrieving a list, a list that has the names and information of spys, in particular a notorious double agent.

Landing in Berlin, Lorraine begins her investigation/carnage.

Good performance from McAvoy, as the sort of deranged British organisational contact in Berlin and good support from Goodman as the grizzled old CIA agent.

The film belongs to Charlie Theron though as the mysterious agent, mysterious as in we know nothing of her past, we just accept that she's a ruthless professional. Theron plays this part brilliantly and her hard work and training in the action scenes shows, as she's phenomenal. There is also a humorous and emotional side to Lorraine.

Want to see it again on the big screen even before it comes out on dvd.

Superb escapism.

Incomprehensible - Atomic Blonde review by TR

Spoiler Alert

Incomprehensible plot, smoking portrayed as "cool", tongue-in-cheek but also excessively violent in places. Not for me.

Violent, twisty with an amazing soundtrack - Atomic Blonde review by AL

Spoiler Alert

Very good soundtrack got the film off to a good start. Plot was a little confusing though and I wish sometimes Charlize would speak up a little or speak clearer. Perhaps it's my hearing, but I had to play back a couple of times and still couldn't always understand. However I don't think that mattered much. I don't think I've seen a film where Charlie smiles and this one is no exception. Very physical film with amazing action scenes. Lots of nice twists as well. Would happily watch again.
