Atomic Blonde

Action & Adventure • R • Directed by: David Leitch • 115 minutes

Oscar® winner 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. A blistering blend of sleek action, gritty sexuality and dazzling style, Atomic Blonde is directed by David Leitch (John Wick, upcoming Deadpool 2). Also starring John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella and Toby Jones, the film is based on the Oni Press graphic novel series “The Coldest City,” by Antony Johnston & illustrator Sam Hart.

I f*cking love Berlin.
★★★★★
Epic! I love it! Charlize Theron is smart, fierce, and takes all the baddies down! I loved the misic! The clothes! The sets! She is such a great actor, but she kicks butt too! Fun popcorn action movie with a fantistic love scene, and not too much BS to worry about. I would watch any amount of sequels made to extend this franchise. Please make another. I love Berlin!!! — Ronin Sherpa

Wasn’t sure
★★★★★
Wasn’t sure this was going to be worth watching but it sucked me in from the first scene and was a fun ride the entire movie! And loved the music!! — Bowtiemi6

Save your money, not worth buying nor renting....
★★★★
Horrible acting, no plot, lots of nonsense fights, amateurish at best. I paid 5.99 to rent this stupid movie and it was a huge disappointment. Anyone saying this is a great movie is most likely being paid to say so. Save your money. — josepho

$6 to rent, really?
★★★★
I'm giving it a 4/5. It wasn't the greatest thing I've ever seen, but it wasn't a bad movie imo. But $6 to rent the movie? How did rentals go from being $3 or 4 to now being $6, when I could just wait until it comes out at Redbox and rent it for $2? No wonder people turn to piracy. — cdcollector187

Waste of time and money
★★★★
This movie is terrible on every level. Don’t waste your time or money on this horrible mess. — Sleeepeepy

Very enjoyable
★★★★★
Didn't feel like watching at the movies because of the lone hitman genre lately but I was sorely wrong. This movie was definitely good and there was a story to it and not just all action-few words like most that are out. The acting was good as expected from veteran actors and the action scenes were great. — psyharden

Not Sure?
★★★★★
I rented this movie five days ago. I tried to dwnld to pad not enough memory. Sent message to Apple about it asked if they could redirect movie to lap or A-TV box. Funny, when my account $1.00 short they cut off my acess to Lib. with hundreds of movies I already paid for. — Dewyoxberger

Bondless
★★★★★
I had high hopes for his highly touted female James Bond flick. I was really disappointed and found the movie mundane and very choreographed. 👎🏻 — ELMO2323232

great movie
★★★★★
at first I wasnt sure but yea its a great movie — Chrisvaldez

Aweome ride!
★★★★★
The plot is not particularly easy to follow or even unravel after the fact, but makes enough sense so as not to interfere with enjoying the overall movie. The action scenes are where this movie shines (and how the soundtrack interacts with them). They are beautifully done and wickedly intense and the characters are lively and interesting - though Theron is clearly the shiniest star. This is is a lot like John Wick in terms of action and pace, but with a much more complex plot. — ProfessorD2005

Was lots of fun, 80s trip
★★★★
Just a fun action movie using the 80s decade as a backdrop with what i like, fighting u can actually see no shaky camera close-up crap — jbrainard3

One of the best movies for portraits
★★★★★
When you’re watching this you think this is the regular story about Cold War between Germany and Russia with good action moments but at the end your realize Something that you can’t even imagine I recommend this movie to anyone that loves us. — ILIA Masih

not a mystery, wasnt impressed, nothing like John Wick!
★★★★★
it was easy to tell what was going on from the beginning. Nothing left to the imagination. Then when something was a curve, it wasnt amazing, just mehhh. Save this for a .99c rental, not worth more — Eric43316

filmed nicely
★★★★
fight scenes great, too — Knew & Used

Nflix
★★★★
Netflx, amazon prime in 6 months. Formula script. — bravochico

Total Crap

How did this movie get ANY good reviews? — SgtMaj8654

bad movie

Nothing Special
★★★★★
Boring from begining to end. Waited to be over. There were no great momments. — mutels

Wick has met his match.
★★★★★
If you're a fan of John Wick, you will love this movie. I kid you not when I say it is just...as...good, if not better. The movie is incredibly stylish, incredible music, the most brutal fight scenes. Not only is Charlize Theron an Oscar-winning actress but an incredible athlete as well (shown in the extras): she brings it. You will not be disappointed. Because of the two Wick movies and now this movie, this is my favorite genre (as long as it stays at this calibre). We have stuntmen turned directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, respectively, to thank for that. — egarth

Awful
★★★★
Not worth my time. But worth my time to tell you it’s awful. — iBryanB

I had high hopes for a good movie but...
★★★★★
So I thought this movie was going to be really good...but I started getting kind of bored with it. I actually skipped to the end of the movie. I guess it will be one of those that I watch later...it was a bit slow at parts...I think Charlize Theron did a great job acting...but the over-all plot seemed to jump around. I think it's worth renting (I'm not sure if I would buy it) — Fly Fishing for Bonefish...

No spoilers
★★★★
Music videos non-stop. When it said "the end" they should have added "thank god". — LyalinDotCom

Bond + Woman Version = Great Flick
★★★★★
Loved the movie, action packed, bond-like film with a great lead actress. See it for yourself, I thought It was the best action movie I've seen this year and I watch too many movies. — Xavixlv3

Outstanding.
★★★★★

Bestyyy
★★★★★
Yes. Watch. Dont care to reviews. Action and nice story. — Nick.i

Awesome movie!
★★★★★
I hope they make a sequel. It was entertaining, not boring at all and packed with action. — Perikalt+

Theron Sizzles
★★★★★
And they say women can’t do hardcore action movies! Theron does her own stunts and that makes her absolutely scintillating in this film! Loved this movie and will be adding it to my digital library! — GNJ

Atomic Blonde
★★★★
The Worst. Every person and all the acting were horrible. A waste of money. — Bhester1

simply complex
★★★★★
It's great watching characters multitask, and good choreography on the violence. Enjoyed the accents. Employs more devices than most action films, so I found it entertaining on different levels. Used 48 hour rental to watch twice. I thought it was nicely done, an all around good effort. I think it will hold up well. — re-moose

Amazingly good!
★★★★★
I actually put this movie off based on the negative reviews. However, there wasn't much else to watch so I went ahead and rented this; normally, I buy the movies that I watch. After watching the movie, I regeted not buying it; it was that good. I think that Charlize played this action-packed role extremely well...even for a woman. — Bionicsurfer

Ugh
★★★★★
Apart from the occasional glimpse of some of Ms. Theron's, um, better parts, this movie is a mess. It's certainly nowhere near as clever as the writers and director would have you believe. Just a confusing, plodding, breathless morass of double- and triple-crosses, with no clear point and no clear point of view. Even Ms. Theron, truly an actor's actor, is reduced to simply whispering her lines, in a hopeless attempt to make them seem more interesting and mysterious than they really are. What a bore. What a mess. Can I have my money back? — Trebly T

WOW
★★★★★
All I can say it is one of the best movies I have seen all year! I would Recommend this movie to anyone that likes great action films and suspense thrillers! I have watched it 4 times already and it just keeps getting better each time I watch it! — BrokenCross

Atomic Blonde has more fun!
★★★★★
Charlize Theron wasn’t winning the Academy like Monster but it was an awesome spy thriller that was like Jason Bourne had a sex change! I have an Atomic Boner! AWESOME!!!!!!! — 16 HORSES

Great action movie
★★★★★
It’s a little complicated, but we all brains, it won’t hurt to use them!! It’s non stop action! — formless

Great movie!
★★★★★
Another great movie from the people who made John Wick. A must see in my opinion. 👌👍 — CrAzY_77

Boring!!!! :(
★★★★
I usually watch the whole movie even if it's bad, but this one I couldn't watch till the end. Very boring. The main character had the same expression through out the movie. It was really annoying. What a waste... — MariaLQS

Not so great honestly
★★★★★
Honestly I don’t understand how this got 76% from Rotten Tomatoes, or whatever it was. This movie wasn’t great, and I’m the kind of person that’s pretty happy with all movies. There isn’t much I really don’t like. But like a few other people said, it was lack of character development that I think screwed this up. And the plot could not of been less clear. I understood it (most of it), but I also didn’t care cause it was so unclear. What this movie did have going for it, was the cool 80s music and style and the absolutely AMAZING fight scenes, or action scenes. They had the main character fight like she would need to in real life (being that she’s a 115lbs woman fighting male thugs.) She would use objects around her and for every one of their punches, she’d hit them 4 times. It was really cool, I have to admit. But the story and the characters didn’t exactly leave me giving a sh*t. — Photag216

Not so great
★★★★★
I didn’t love the movie gets boring sometimes. — cleia

Oh Phlease!!!
★★★★★
Why the good reviews from the "professional" reviewers? Because there is a WOMAN starring in this giant B.S feel good women movie? Oh PHLEEEEASE...... get your act together. — MaxTheFirst

Great movie. Sexy too
★★★★
This movie was kinda slow at the beginning but got waaaay better. It’s a must buy for my collection. — DRKbadger

Charlize Theron is “Everythjng”
★★★★★

Atomic
★★★★★
Mind blowing — livingstoneony

Great flick 💪
★★★★
Really enjoyed this. Love the action since it reminds me of a Matrix type film. Love her in this movie 🎥. Really a departure from her usual stuff ( not counting the astronauts wife) here she's killer! Can't wait to see it again. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Up date- I bought this movie because I enjoyed it when I saw it the 1st time. However- I regret it now. I'm not sure 🤔 but maybe my mood was different at first showing. It's lack luster and slow. Oh well. I'm sure it's going to be watched again when I can't sleep one night lol 😂 — Gamer holdem

Worth a night out!
★★★★★
One of a handful of movies I actually went to a theater to see this year. It was amazingly entertaining. Cannot wait for the sequel & I usually run from action movies. — BIGJOSSFAN

You don't notice at first...
★★★★★
...but around 40 minutes in it hits you that this is the first time you've seen a woman kicking this much a**. And then you appreciate it. — jdzkmny

Just OK
★★★★★
A bit long for the story line. — CheapTrickster

Rent it don’t buy it
★★★★★
5 / 10 .... — 7th_Man

Lady killer
★★★★
Great movie with a female lead. I really enjoyed the action an intrigue. — Tidledeedee

Excellent!
★★★★★
Movie has it all: intrigue, vibe, action , sexiness ,a little dark comedy and a storyline all excellently presented with its own feel during a monumental time in modern history. But as the movie states - this story is not about that. Theron’s best role is years. — aramis2764

HORRIBLE!!!
★★★★
First and last Theron movie. Would not recommend to anyone. — NeverAgain01
