Storyline

The crown jewel of Her Majesty's Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) 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 (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.

Trivia

This is the second film to feature Til Schweiger and play the song "Cat People" by David Bowie. The first was Inglourious Basterds (2009). Both films play "Cat People" while a woman looks in the mirror and applies makeup. Both films are about fictional military plots circling around actual historical events. See more »

Goofs

When Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) emerges on to the streets of London at the start of the film, the very distinctive Portcullis House (a black building with numerous faux industrial chimneys on the roof) is clearly visible next to Big Ben. This building was built between 1992 and 2001, long after the events of Atomic Blonde from 1989. See more »

Sex, violence and '80s nostalgia, devoid of substance
15 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I'm not averse to watching attractive people grind their naked bodies together or punch, shoot and stab each other. But when a movie has nothing else to offer besides a selection of 1980s pop hits and washed-out shots of a largely fictional Berlin, I tend to get bored. And boy, did this contrived McGuffin chase bore me to death. The paper-thin plot only exists to somehow string the various stunt, fight, sex and car chase scenes together. The fact that many of the positive reviews laud Charlize Theron's physical appearance and gush about the lesbian sex scene shows how utterly forgettable the entire rest of this movie is. I mostly give it 3 stars for the musical score, even though I could have listened to an '80s mixtape for free.
