Review by Mark Brennand

Putting aside the violence – which at times is very graphic – this action movie, wrapped around a spy narrative, is a real hoot. It stars Charlize Theron as Lorraine Broughton a female Jason Bourne, but with more balls. The year is 1989 and through the format of a post operation debriefing, Broughton unloads the story of her difficult mission to Berlin where she had been sent to retrieve a missing microfilm.

Whilst in Berlin she meets up with David Percival (James McAvoy) an unhinged MI6 station chief and French agent Delphine Lassal (Sofia Boutella) with whom she has a passionate fling. The plot, such as it is, plays second fiddle to the action which is superb. There are some brilliant fight scenes involving the seemingly indestructible Broughton and whole a cast of “communist” heavies, the best of which occurs in a staircase and lasts around ten minutes.
As the Berlin wall comes down Percival ruminates on what it’s all about. You could say the same about Atomic Blonde. But you’ll have enjoyed the experience and if Theron stays on board, there’ll be sequels to come.
