Atomic Blonde – the New Action Film in Cinemas Now

Posted on September 6, 2017 at 10:57 am

Atomic Blonde is an action film set in Berlin during the Cold War. It tracks MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton, a lethal assassin and expert in hand-to-hand combat, as she is sent to Berlin to uncover mysteries and assassinate Satchel, an agent who has sold intelligence to Soviet officials. Her mission is not without problems – she is immediately ambushed upon her arrival in the city and the action continues throughout the film. This is definitely one for the action fans out there.

If you were hoping for an in-depth historical narrative, you could be a little disappointed with this film. There is plenty going on but the narrative is its downfall, coming second after the action. The film is directed by David Leitch and is the first film he has directed alone. It stars Charlize Theron as the main character and alongside her are James McAvoy, John Goodman and Eddie Marsan.
