Atomic Blonde Regie David Leitch
Leitch favours a sleazy, neon aesthetic that looks like an X-rated, ultraviolent knock-off of a Duran Duran video. The soundtrack is a largely credible mix tape of 80s pop-rock featuring New Order, Depeche Mode, Siouxsie and the Banshees and, perhaps inevitably, Nena’s 99 Luftballons. But it’s in the action that Leitch, formerly a stunt co-ordinator and second unit director, shines.

The reality is that Atomic Blonde is neither a reactionary neo-exploitation flick nor a boldly feminist landmark… At a moment in which everything lends itself to a political reading, there’s something reassuring about the way the movie’s slick surfaces repel such attempts. The film… could really bring the country together in appreciation of the straightforward gratification of cool clothes, pretty people, and breathtakingly choreographed violence.

The movie deals in archetype, even as it fudges the balancing-act between essence and one-dimensionality. From thinly-sketched characters to an obvious (and unnecessarily convoluted) right old Le Carré-on of a plot, there’s little here to trouble the pulse between action beats. In that department at least, Leitch finds surer – if by no means consistent – footing.

  • chanandre's rating of the film Atomic Blonde

    Right clothes, sets, cars, lingo, songs (oh New Order!), style, 'politics', wrong script. Loved the 'sampling' polemic of '89. Remember very vividly the fall of the wall, I was a wee lad of 5 and i was like 'erm, aren't they gonna get crushed under the rubble when the wall falls down over them...?' Misfire. McAvoy steals the whole show and Theron pulls a Huppert coming off too mechanical and glacial. 'Tinker Sailor'▽

  • Zachary T.'s rating of the film Atomic Blonde

    The silhouette showdown from "Kill Bill" and a memorable Bowie cue from "Inglourious Basterds" are lifted, which did take me out of it. C'mon Leitch! You don't need to steal; the chilly, synth-laden, neon-drenched atmosphere pioneered in "John Wick" is back, and Charlize, the Queen of Cool, shines in a calculated, wry, bravely physical turn. The fight choreography is predictably, laudably bananas.

  • Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Atomic Blonde

    Gah, this had so much potential to be great - the setting, the clothes, the music, Theron, the music, the action, the music - but it's let down by an over-convoluted script that expects us to care and be shocked by its twists and turns, but misses the boat. But damn, that staircase setpiece.

  • Dave's rating of the film Atomic Blonde

    Frenetic, stylish as hell, and a twisting, turning spy thriller that I'm still not completely sure I have a firm grasp on - but I really, really liked it. Will need to watch again and this rating could go up to 5/5. EDIT: Re-watched and this up to 5/5 for me. So cool, so well-directed, and ultimately just a great, intriguing Cold War spy thriller.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Atomic Blonde

    The script saddles this movie with an unnecessary framing device and a poe-faced, surface-obsessed attitude that doesn't allow Charlize Theron to display an emotion beyond chilly disdain (it's easy to forget just how funny the "John Wick" movies can be). But action buffs will find this absolutely worth watching for every moment Theron lets out a guttural yell and beats a musclebound man to death with her high heels.

  • Ethan's rating of the film Atomic Blonde

    This is a very sexy, cynical, and badass spy thriller. Charlize Theron gives an incredibly badass performance here and the fight choreography is some of the best in recent years making the audience feel every breath and mishap of the action. This is all backed up with stunning cinematography and a killer soundtrack of 80s electronic and alternative hits. This is a true gem of the year.

  • Palmat's rating of the film Atomic Blonde

    The downsides: scattershot first reel, uncomfortably male gazey (it's 2017 guys, you can do better), over assualt of 80's pop songs (they´re all good, but it´s too much), Bates dull score (why does this guy still get work???)... The upsides: Theron+McAvoy+Goodman+Jones+Boutella+Skarsgard, Berlin locations and cold war setting, photo, visuals, the action scenes (mind boggling), better plotting than expected...

  • Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Atomic Blonde

    Charlize Theron uses a choice ten-letter c-word on John Goodman and James McAvoy claims the heavily product-placed Jack Daniels is from "the Virgin Mary's tit." And this is just the first ten minutes of "Atomic Blonde," an exuberant exercise in gratuitous violence and mostly empty flash in a post-"Kill Bill" filmmaking landscape. Theron kills it, and the great thing is she's now solidified as an action movie star.
