Atomic Blonde

"The first female 007 is here" or so they say as Charlize Theron proves to the world that even femme fatales can be as deadly as men when it comes to spy thrillers and this film, Atomic Blonde, is the perfect example of what happens when you put her in a dark storyline that blows all the action films away in a jiffy.

Atomic Blonde

Based on a popular comic book of the same name, Atomic Blonde takes place in Berlin during the final days of the Cold War, where MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton, played by Theron, sent on an assignment to take down a ruthless espionage ring that just killed an undercover agent for unknown reason. She teams up with station chief David Percival, played by James McAvoy, and together, they use whatever means necessary to gun down the target before it's too late.

When you see Theron pulling all the stops to deliver a massive action thriller unlike any other, everything you know about Atomic Blonde feels like every other spy movie you've ever know, especially though Bond and Bourne films from the past, and even though the film's dark storyline suits rather well for a Cold War-era timeline, it really is the perfect action thriller you can enjoy during the summer blockbuster season. It may not be one of the best action films of all time but for a margin of doubt, Atomic Blonde is a real "atomic" bomb to blow them away in a darker kind of way.

My rating: 3.9 out of 5.
