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.

Comic book violence with no plot and a look derivative of Sin City: rubbish.
22 August 2017 | by (London) – See all my reviews

It's rare my wife and I walk out of a movie, but after one hour and fifteen minutes of unrelenting violence, interrupted only by a couple of minutes of lesbian sex, my wife finally declared herself unable to stomach more. I was only too happy to follow her lead. If I'd known before I bought the tickets that Atomic Blonde was based on a graphic novel (i.e. a comic book) I would never have gone - but it's billed as an Action Movie, a genre we enjoy. It's not.

It's a childish procession of violence upon violence in which the heroine marches unidirectionally through a series of wastelands, assailed by an eternal parade of disposable goons, whom she dispatches routinely with bureaucratic disinterest in a variety of not especially creative ways. It's like watching a geeky friend play a long, self-absorbed game of space invaders; it loses its appeal after just a few seconds, and you start to wonder what's happening outside and whether you should find some more fun people to hang out with. Even the sex scene is clearly there only to satisfy the starved lust of the teenaged boys this movie addresses. 'Let's take a break from the faux kung fu and double handed pistol work, lads, here's a couple of hot naked chicks! Oh no, it's bed time...'

Atomic Blonde lacks the charm, humour and suspense of the classic action movies, The Bourne Identity, the Best Bonds (Casino Royale, Goldfinger...), Die Hard, take your pick... If only it were held together by some kind of story, some essence of danger, or an original idea, or even one character for whom one could care, it might make a difference. Of course, there are none of the above. What's this 'List' they're all worked up about? Is it the same 'List' as in the first Mission Impossible? So why can't they make it fun like that one?

Charlize Theron is a terrific actress and jaw-droppingly beautiful, but she stalks through this movie stone-faced and bored and without a single good line to make her interesting (in fact the dialogue overall is just awful). Every character is a stereotype, none of them original, and I cannot remember one single line - if there were any.

Technically it's well shot, lit and equipped, but the Sin City atmosphere has been done before. The stunts are generally well done - but we've seen them all before. It is, I'm afraid, derivative rubbish.
