Atomic Blonde hits theaters this weekend, and while its style has a lot to offer, its story does not. Listen to the 4-minute audio review below to see why you should probably wait for this movie to hit Netflix to see it:
To reiterate, we should praise director David Leitch for trying to do something original with this film. The style and Jonathan Sela’s cinematography shine just as brightly as Charlize Theron and James McAvoy. It just would have been nice if the story broke the mold as well and offered more of interest.
Atomic Blonde is out July 28, 2017.
Agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on an impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to retrieve a priceless dossier from within the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through a deadly game of spies.
