Atomic Blonde – review

A new James Bond Rises

I was not expecting to go and watch this Atomic Blonde. Atomic Blonde was my second option for the night. But, as people always say, “when you aren’t expecting nothing… life surprises you the most”. This time the director David Leitch, Charlize Theron, and an amazing soundtrack made it all the work.

The movie is devised on three parts: the beginning, a present where teh British agent is narrating what happened on the begging, and the end.

While Berlin is battling the Cold War on his on land for freedom, another war is taking part on the underground, an atomic blonde is feeling Bond, James Bond. A savage blonde agent part of the British secret service is sent to Berlin to get some information that is precious for the British.

Beside you may think by the effects at the beginning of the movie… Atomic Blonde starts high: well and strong acts server with rough soundtracks. There isn’t a low nor slow acst. All the characters work together to keep the audience entertained (a thing that many directors and writers forget) the whole 140 minutes.

Theron makes an powerful work-group with James McAvoy (which early this year gave us a major performance on Split) and Sofia Boutella. Theron’s script is savage and smart. The action scene are full adrenaline and blood. Rough blood. Also, McAvoy’s work as a mean sexy Berlin lover is as important as Theron work.

Atomic Blonde is a fancy smart move from the direction. Leitch took risks that are visible (which I thanks) on the direction. Make a combination of thriller, comedy, action, and fashionable is not a easy work. But, Leitch did it!
