Storyline Heading
The crown jewel of Her Majesty's Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton 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 to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Mystery Thriller - This very violent, 1980s-set action film is a big showcase for lead Charlize Theron, with the other recognizable actors such as James McAvoy, John Goodman, and Sofia Boutella having much smaller roles. In addition to the many intense and brutal action scenes, sexual situations (especially involving two women), strong language, and substance use make the film strictly for adults. The presence of a female lead gives this action film more appeal to women than most.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Atomic Blonde is perfect summer entertainment in that it does what it promises for about two hours. It's brash, energetic, and exhilarating and, although it may lose points because of a lack of originality, it gains them back as a result of Theron's dedication and Leitch's style.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good Without Charlize Theron, the spy adventure "Atomic Blonde" would only be clever. She makes it insightful. The actress gives emotional depth to the highly mannered behavior of the film's heroine... Theron's commanding performance is remarkable. Her take-no-bull body language and calculating stare give her character an intelligence...

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Take out the cool retro tunes, neon everything and the formidable woman of action, and Atomic Blonde tends more bland than Bond. In some instances, the plot gets so convoluted that it's hard to tell who's a friend and who's a foe.

NY Post Full Review
Good ... the fighting is brutal: Like the best moments of the "Bourne” movies, her hand-to-hand combat is mostly soundtracked by bare guttural grunts (and punctuated by the occasional audience gasp, at least at my screening). The plot is a paper-thin excuse on which to hang the action sequences

Based on a theater exit polling of 52 moviegoers:
TEENS: Only about 35% of the guys loved this movie, which is low for this type of action movie. Another 12% enjoyed it very much, but have only rated it "average," which again for this type of movie is low for this group of moviegoers. The two females loved it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The two males loved it, as did 4 of the 6 females. One of the two remaining females rated it "above average" and one rated it "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
