Atomic Blonde

Charlize Theron sizzles as an international spy


BY: Liz MacDonald

Charlize Theron is a drop dead gorgeous and highly efficient killing machine in Atomic Blonde, battling her way all over Berlin, a ruthless superspy in thigh high boots. As M16 agent Lorraine Broughton, Theron has been dispatched to the German capital in the midst of the Cold War to take down a nefarious espionage ring eliminating her fellow agents. We get to watch her do battle with waves of evil henchman, kicking, punching and shooting her way out of every brawl with perfect form.

Atomic Blonde is adapted from Antony Johnston’s 2012 graphic novel The Coldest City, and its director, David Leitch (John Wick, Deadpool 2), is Hollywood’s reigning king of the action sequence. A former stunt man, he’s crafted a hyperviolent and hyperstylized action thriller that lingers on every dazzling action sequence. Charlize Theron is relentless perfection, the fiercest female spy ever to hit the silver screen.
