Oscar®-winner Charlize Theron stars as elite MI6’s most lethal assassin and the crown jewel of her Majesty's secret intelligence service, Lorraine Broughton. When she's sent on a covert mission into Cold War Berlin, she must use all of the spycraft, sensuality and savagery she has to stay alive in the ticking time bomb of a city simmering with revolution and double-crossing hives of traitors. Broughton must navigate her way through a deadly game of spies to recover a priceless dossier while fighting ferocious killers along the way in this breakneck action-thriller from director David Leitch (John Wick).

The real 90 Germany

★★★★
Great action movie with a great story. Only real gripe is the execution on the plot, you couldnt really focus to much on it beacuse of the flashiness of the fighting scenes. — taytosaladfingers

Endless gratuitous violence ruins story
★★★★★
Plot, story and character development are sacrificed at the altar of endless violence. The stunt people are the real stars of this movie. — Thatchman2

Atomic blonde
★★★★
Horrible movie waste of a rent — only1reaper4

Meh
★★★★★
A resoundingly average movie that’s all style and very little substance. Also, the plot is absurd and unintelligible. — Lawrence Juliano

Pure garbage.
★★★★
I was really excited for this movie. I got waylaid. It was awful. Stupid. Disconnected. Lots of action yet mind numbingly Boring. Supposed to be 80s Cold War retro. Just bad 80s retro. They got that down. Boo — gatofelixx

Yuk. Ghastly hype-only.
★★★★★
Shot entirely in deep black and blue to create an eastern european noire, the action overtakes the limping plot. But the action is campy, phony, strutting thunder with no believability or even interest. Making Charlize look like a fighter would have been easy but the stunt coordinator was bullied by the director, so all we get is thump...crash...boom...wham. Theron’s heroine acts like she’s strung out on heroin, and all she does is...strut. For two miserable hours. — Leonardo DaVinci

Feminist garbage
★★★★
If you believe that one lady, Charlize Theron, can beat the living crap out of the ENTIRE East German Stasi, all of whom are two-hundred pounds of chiselled Boris, then this utter dumpster fire of a spy movie is for you, friend. A Mary Sue of epic proportions and a plot that throws up on itself and passes out half way through the film. Should you chose to accept this mission, you will lose two hours of your life. Forever. — zidane2015

Good
★★★★★
Great acting. A lot of action. I enjoy it. Entertaining. I googled it afterwards to really make sure I understood the ending. I left me wondering once again if our world is like anything like the movie. A CIA spy spying the British and the Russians. No way. — Greek Woman

Don’t waste your money
★★★★
Completely unrealistic movie. The only way it would have been less believable is if they had added a cape to Charlize and had her flying around Berlin during her fight scenes. Also, the plot was concocted BS. — Annyshka166

Bill Skarsgård
★★★★★
I haven’t seen the movie and idk if I’ll like it but Bill Skarsgård. That’s it. It’s automatically great because he’s in it. So if it gets boring I’ll have something to look at💕💕💕💕 — Joker Leto💚💚

Fun and Unique
★★★★★
Charlize Theron owns this movie. — VictorRCruz

Not bad
★★★★
It’s no, “Bourne identity” but it worth a watch. A Theron is very good at what she does. — Chuck812

One of the best movies in the past ten years
★★★★★
I really don't care for categories - whether female-led action - or comparisons - such as a comment about it being less than John Wick (I didn't care for that one and not because it's better or worse than this one). What I do care about is a movie that makes me feel, solidly puts me in an era past and really convinces me that I'm there. This is thrilling, it's fun, every twist and turn of it, and the action is classical action, as in real stuff that really works. This is not superhero, special effects, or big franchise just a fantastic film that makes me realize that some people out there still have it. Bravo to the filmmakers. Oh did I mention the soundtrack... — Uncleschnell

Female Bond/Bourne
★★★★
I went into this one not expecting much but came out very impressed. Charlize Theron gives a stellar performance and held her own very well. Definitely in my top 10 for 2017. — Billyrap1727

Great plot line, good soundtrack...
★★★★★
And a crazy ending, I mean just wow. Totally worth the watch and loved the darkness in the visuals surrounding the film. It’s portrayed the main character as a beacon of light in a dull grey, dark world, despite being a spy and killer. — Pooch91

Hollywood crap
★★★★★
The action was okay, The lesbian relationship not so much. Didn't even finish the movie. — Adderall Diaries

Smart, excellent film
★★★★
So, in five years, this is the film that people will still be discussing. The pacing is excellent. The writing, an adaptation of "The Coldest City," is top-notch. The acting is spot on, from everybody. The fight scene in the stairwell / apartment is a single take (with some cheats, I believe) which makes the wounds that much more impressive. The other scenes are just as brilliant. Whose side is Percival on? He tells us again and again. He's working for B. But where are Broughton's loyalties? Once you've watched this film, watch it again, and it's an entirely different movie. — Akitrom

Wonderful!
★★★★★
This movie is so great. The action scenes were planned out so well, every character was so complex. You would never supect the ending. This movie shows a strong female lead, who is not only is skilled in hand-to-hand combat, but has the intelligence. She uses anything around her as a weapon, even her own brain at times! It has modern day taste to the cold war. It shows the raw untamed picture of what its like to be in a war, to be a spy. Even though sometimes the spray paint text was a bit much, I felt we could over look that for the true quailty of the movie. — Expressing urself

Awesome
★★★★★
It has all the stuff you would expect in an action movie but with a female lead actor. The action was great. — Morrowtomorrow

Yuck
★★★★★
Total waste of time!! — 🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬

A sleeper
★★★★
Fell asleep. Started watching at 8 PM with my wife and was asleep by 8:10. For an action film it was dull. It is hard to keep track of who is on which side. The editing is also poor. During one scene towards the end the main character is behind the front door and somehow appears several feet away within a second. It was very odd. And all of that shooting at close range but she escapes unscathed. Will never watch it again. — 4thelittleguy

A Hydrogen BOOOMB
★★★★★
Really a fantastic movie, plenty of action, very well acted. Charlize is the best action actress ever, the scenes are realistic and violent, excellent movie, Id like more Atomic Blonde — Epsilonx

All the noise, noise, noise noise!
★★★★★
The music is so overpoweringly loud and the speech so soft, especially Charlize, that it is hard to understand the actors. — Puzfan3

Rent, don’t buy
★★★★★
It’s a watered down John Wick, but set in the 80s, and with a 115 lb woman. 75% of her hand-to-hand combat with 220 lb men even LOOKS like complete garbage. It’s a decent romp, with a fun, retro soundtrack... makes for a good rental. Wait for it on Netflix, though. — recarp

Sexy atomic gem bond
★★★★★
This movie is sexy and with a lots of original action pack action but a la feme juggalos defenitly the new Bond a la fem style great can’t wait for the sequence. — yagulito

Had you thinking who’s the bad guy
★★★★★
I thought it kept you guessing right to the end, who's the bad guy's and who's the good guy's. That makes a great movie. — 1BDVET

Favorite of 2017
★★★★★
My personal favorite of this year, all actors are brilliant and the ambience of the scenes are delicioussly build. — Sweet Bluebird

stinker!
★★★★
This was a terrible movie. Plot did not make sense. Even the fight scenes didn't make sense. Don't waste ur money! They should have called this Atomic Nonsense! — asiandentist

Beyond stupid...
★★★★
Blenderized monotone monologues, flat videography, moronic nonsense scrip and horrible timing combine to make this the most stupid movie that I've seen in about four years. I'm dumber for having watched this juevile attempt at making a movie and I'm poorer now too. I'm going to go take shower now to try and scrub Atomic Blonde out of my pores. — mEtApHoRiK

Had to watch the rental twice in a row
★★★★★
Rented and watched the movie. Fell asleep, woke at 1am and had to re-watch it having full knowledge of all the twists. Charlize does a great job in this and I LOVE that they show how exhausting, draining and bruising all that fighting can really be on a person. The best part of this is that shows the truth that no one can deceive like a beautiful smart woman. Proves you shouldn't send a man to do a woman's job.... James Bond. — rmschrey

Horrible
★★★★★
I was excited to see this so I bought it....this movie was horrible I actually stopped watching it half way through. — Touchplaya

Very slow imo

Too late for me, save yourself!
★★★★
Rarely does a movie fall below even my lowest expectations, but this one did it quite easily. It lacks everything that movies are made of - plot, arc, character appeal, watchability. The music and dialog were so painful to listen to that I was tempted to watch without sound. I woud've been better off burning my $6 for the warmth. Maybe I can write it off on my taxes as a loss. From this day on, I will no longer rate anything on a scale of 0-10, but rather, on a scale of Atomic Blonde - 10! — silkysef

hated it!!
★★★★
charlise messed this movie up... looked like a dude in a wig during the fight scenes. rule number one- if you going to act like a lesbian, learn how one really goes to the y. learn to kiss the girl like its natural and not forced... or just let a real lesbian play the role. rosie odonald could have done a better munching scene and she cant act. just another movie trying to glamorize the 80's music scene. hey i have that soundtrack... its called new wave 80's ... i got it in the 1.99 bin. thats how bad the soundtrack was. — Greyhawk2013

Thourghly enjoyable spy/action movie!
★★★★★
This movie was great. I loved it! Did exactly what I expected it to. Great action, cinematic eye candy, good characters, and a story to keep you interested till the end. Speaking of the end, I wasn't expecting it. A nice cherry on top. If you like action movies with some artistic pizazz and spy intruige, then definitely see Atomic Blonde! — blootius_maximus

Amazing soundtrack, interesting movie
★★★★
I the soundtrack was amazing and helped pull the movie through some patches where it kinda began to slog through details that were probably great on paper, but didn’t translate to the scene on film well. — lofidelityrockr
