Atmoic Blonde is a film based on a graphic novel, The Coldest City. It stars Charlize Theron and is directed by David Leitch.
While this film may not be for everyone, the violence is brutal and the plot can be tricky to follow, it still is a clever and interesting ride. Mostly due to the work of Charlize Theron.
If you enjoyed her performance in Mad Max:Fury Road, consider this a more lipstic version of her kick-ass persona. It’s like watching Jason Bourne with a mix of Deborah Harry and Madonna.
The 80s setting provides a nostalgic trip down memory lane. The music chosen pulls from some of the best of the era. “Father Figure”, “Voices Carry”, “99 Red Luft Balloons”.
The director is a stunt man, and therefore, the stunts are incredible. Unrelenting and so tightly choreographed. How they do it is a mystery.
If you are looking for a Berlin wall, platinum hair, neon glow, action-spy thriller, this is the movie for you.
