Oscar®-winner Charlize Theron stars as elite MI6’s most lethal assassin and the crown jewel of her Majesty's secret intelligence service, Lorraine Broughton. When she's sent on a covert mission into Cold War Berlin, she must use all of the spycraft, sensuality and savagery she has to stay alive in the ticking time bomb of a city simmering with revolution and double-crossing hives of traitors. Broughton must navigate her way through a deadly game of spies to recover a priceless dossier while fighting ferocious killers along the way in this breakneck action-thriller from director David Leitch (John Wick).




  • WOW ...

    I was surprised I really kind of like this movie, all sorts of twists and good action.

    Would definitely recommend if you're not looking for a particularly deep movie. I think criticism of the plot/storytelling is accurate, but the movie was entertaining/engrossing enough that I didn't care too much. (Not sure why some thought the characters should have meaningful arcs or more emotive behavior...the latter is explicitly addressed by Theron's character, and they're intelligence agents whose job--and the job is the point--kind of hinges on not having personal arcs or crises.) I was skeptical after the trailer, thought it'd be a typical fast-paced spy/action movie with one too many tired CGI-believable stunts, and I'm not (gasp) some huge Theron fan. But a female hero and a Cold War story? Okay. It took a minute to warm up to the movie, but I was sold not too far in when she put on "Father Figure" while beating the living daylights out of her attackers. I was laughing and cringing, yet felt like cheering...haven't enjoyed a scene that much in a long time. I guess, as a woman, I found the action inspiring. Sure, Theron is tiny, and the fights choreographed, but seeing her scrap it out without explosions, special gadgets, or even usually guns still felt good. That representation mattered to me. I read that Theron did the stunts and wanted to use tactics that a woman would actually use, and the fact that this was at least a consideration impressed me after the fact. Also loved the visual style in combination with the music; this movie drew me into its world. I don't think it tried to sugarcoat her job or make her was stark, the movie lingers on what she loses and how she lives. I thought that aspect was relatively honest and well done. Overall, again, would recommend.
  • How many plot twists is too many? Atomic Blonde aims to find out.

    By Cooliodaddy123
    I got weary of the thinly veiled plot twists every two minutes. By the end, I could care less what was "really" going on. And the action scenes were meh. Seemed like an attempt to be realistically violent. But, it fails since the viewer must suspend reality to believe that skinny Charlize Theron is able to cut through man after man. Why not suspend reality with fantastical action scenes... that's what the movies are good for. If you want to portray gritty violence, then don't cast a super model.
  • One of the best of 2017

    Yes it may be a little unrealistic but it’s entertaining, has a good plot , and is bad ***.
  • Great action movie

  • Very disappointing

    The trailer was better than the movie. Very disappointing. Too bad because I usually love her movies. Don’t buy it!
  • Atomic? Maybe Sub-atomic

    Love Charlize Theron, but this movie was horrible for her. It gave her no range to work from. The first half of the movie she is monotone and uncharacteristically dull. The fight scenes are cring-worthy at best and at worst they are outright ridiculous. I mean.. arming yourself with a length of hose to beat up 20 cops? Come on.. The first half of the movie was boring and pointless.
