Movie Review: Atomic Blonde
An action-packed, spy-thriller movie. A list of double-agents is in danger of being publizied and Lorraine Broughton – played by Charlize Theron is sent to Eastern Germany to recover the list and the man who has memorized it.
There are twists and turns in this movie. It is set in 1989 just before the collaspe of the Berlin Wall.
The best thing about this movie is the fight-scenes which are stellar and accurate.
As Theron’s training (which involved 8 trainers) for the movie overlapped with Keanu Reeves’ training for John Wick Chapter 2, the two developed a competitive relationship, which included sparring together.
I did like the movie and the fact a woman was taking the place of Bond/Bourne-like movie. Wish there had been a bit more depth and time to figure things out with the character.
