Atomic Blonde (2017) Review


Atomic Blonde is a 2017 American action thriller film based on the 2012 graphic novel The Coldest City, which revolves around a spy who has to find a list of double agents who are being smuggled into the West on the eve of the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
The film is directed by David Leitch, in his first solo directorial credit, and it is written by Kurt Johnstad. The film's cast includes Charlize Theron (who also served as a co-producer), James McAvoy, John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella, and Toby Jones.
Atomic Blonde had its world premiere at South by Southwest on March 12, 2017, and was theatrically released in the United States on July 28 by Focus Features.
It grossed $100 million worldwide and received positive reviews from critics, who praised its action sequences, Theron's and McAvoy's performances, and the soundtrack, though the ending was generally considered hard to follow.
Many compared the film to the John Wick series, for which Leitch was an uncredited co-director and producer of the first film. A sequel is in development.
