Atomic Blonde (2017) [Review]

Atomic Blonde (2017)

An undercover MI6 agent is sent to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents.

Not at all what I expected. Similarities to John Wick aren’t just stemming from the direction of David Leitch (who spent most of his career choreographing fight scenes, including John Wick), it’s a hugely entertaining film without having much substance to it. Theron is excellent, essentially going from person to person finding new ways to kick their ass. It’s mindless, action packed and lacks any coherent plot, but if you’re in the mood for something easy then this would be worthwhile. I doubt it made many end of year lists though, except maybe ones for the best soundtrack.
