Atomic Blonde (15)

MI6’s most lethal assassin heads to Berlin in the midst of the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents.

Undercover MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) has an undisputed reputation as a killing machine. She will stop at nothing to retrieve vital intell stolen by the Russians.

In a time when trust is a rare commodity that few can afford, Lorraine is always one step ahead. She needs to be, it’s the only way to navigate the ticking time bomb that is the Cold War and stay alive.

In a hive of traitors, spies and revolutionaries Lorraine draws on her expert hand-to-hand combat skills to defeat her opponents.

With lives hanging in the balance she can’t afford to put one foot wrong. The trainer killer must go into battle never before. If she loses countless MI6 operatives will be executed, each in a more gruesome way than the last.

Atomic Blonde is an explosive action movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. Move over Bond and Bourne, there’s a new secret agent in town and she’s taking down names.

Theron is the perfect choice for the movie’s heroine, while McAvoy provides the right level of intrigue and humour the movie needs. Goodman plays his part to perfection, as always.

Not unlike Baby Driver music plays a pivotal role in Atomic Blonde. The soundtrack brings another level of energy and angst to the already pulse-racing movie.
