‘Atomic Blonde’ hits theaters on July 28, and break down the film in a Facebook Live session as Charlize Theron gave everything to this movie, blood, sweat, tears. As a Gen Xer, ‘Atomic Blonde’ reminded me why I love 80s action films.
The film is bit long, and ‘Atomic Blonde’ could have used a better cinematographer, but even with those short comings – the cast, the action, and the soundtrack make this a must see in theaters experience.
Check out the video below for my complete review:
‘Atomic Blonde’ is based on the Oni Press graphic Novel, ‘The Coldest Night’ writen by Antony Johnston with art by Sam Hart.
About the film:
Charlize Theron explodes into summer in Atomic Blonde, a breakneck action-thriller that follows MI6’s most lethal assassin through a ticking time bomb of a city simmering with revolution and double-crossing hives of traitors.
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.
‘Atomic Blonde’ is directed by David Leitch from Kurt Johnstad’s screenplay and stars Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella, Bill Skarsgård, and Toby Jones .
