So everyone seems to be hailing ATOMIC BLONDE as the coming of the female JAMES BOND. Me? I like to think it’s more of the arrival of the female JOHN WICK. Which makes sense since one of JOHN WICK’s directors, David Leitch, helmed this movie.
So ladies and gentlemen, welcome, JANE WICK!
Inspired by and adapted from the comic, THE COLDEST CITY, ATOMIC BLONDE features the crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.
And safe to say, it was fun as hell. ATOMIC BLONDE is definitely the most sexist, action-packed movie I’ve seen this Summer. Sure, it’s a little forgettable. But has just enough twists and turns to keep it interesting.
If you’re looking fun, turn your brain off, ride at the theatre, this one is definitely worth a go.
