Atomic Blonde

Director: David Leitch.
Starring: Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Sofia Boutella. USA 2017. 115 mins.

Charlize Theron kicks serious ass wearing suspenders and stilettos in this slick, action-packed espionage thriller. She plays Lorraine Broughton, a top MI6 operative dispatched to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and retrieve a top-secret dossier. Here she meets station chief David Percival (McAvoy) and they form an uneasy partnership. “God, I think I love you,” Percival tells her admiringly. Who wouldn’t? Theron is cooler than ice as she stalks Berlin’s chilly streets and steamy nightclubs, pausing only to kiss a girl or knock back a vodka on the rocks. Adapted from Antony Johnston’s graphic novel The Coldest City, the movie is directed by David Leitch (John Wick and the upcoming Deadpool 2), who also happens to be Brad Pitt’s former stunt double. It’s fair to say action fans won’t leave disappointed.
