Last night I really enjoyed watching the DVD of 2017 action-thriller “Atomic Blonde” – the films rocks fast like a Sam Peckinpah version of ‘The Bourne Conspiracy’ with x1000% of the violence.
Charlize Theron is very convincing in the role of lethal MI6 officer Lorraine Broughton, sent to Berlin to recover ‘The List’ (of all active spies in the city from both sides). She is warned to beware an unknown double-agent, code-named ‘Satchel’, who has been betraying secrets to the KGB for years. The action takes place in the closing days of the Cold War, just as the Berlin Wall is coming down, and events kick off as soon as her aircraft lands.
Stylish and evocative, the film proceeds to a backing track of ’80s music that really helps to create just the right sense of atmosphere for the action. A wonderful film & recommended if you like your action-thrillers with a vein of undiluted violence.
