Atomic Blonde

“Atomic Blonde” is the “Female James Bond!!”

It’s 1989 in Berlin Germany on the eve of “The Wall” coming down. Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) is a Top Level Spy for MI6. She is tasked with going into Berlin to bring down an International Spy Ring that has killed an Agent for no reason. Lorraine has been told to corporate with the Berlin station chief Percival (James McAvoy), but it appears that there is a “Double-Spy” amongst them or a leak because at every turn Agent Broughton has to unleash her many skills and use her arsenal to defend herself as she tries to carry out her assignment. She doesn’t know who she can trust. The story unfolds from there…

“Atomic Blonde” would be a 5 star movie if the plot and narrative were a bit more-meaty. The action is crazy good. There is plenty of intrigue, suspense and unexpected twists. There are even some “Kick Ass” stunts! The sound track is awesome and appropriate for the time period portrayed in the movie.

Charlize Theron is excellent as the “Atomic Blonde”.
If you like “Spy Thrillers” then “Atomic Blonde” is your movie.

This is a 4 Star Movie!
