Review of the film Atomic Blonde: The action thriller by Charlize Theron is a soft and forgettable cocktail


When it was announced that Charlize Theron would star in an action movie directed by one of the boys who did John Wick, one could not be more pumped. The trailer delivered on the promise as the movie looked like an incredibly cool, atmospheric cold war thriller with crazy action sequences. The movie, unfortunately, is a little disappointing.

The elements are present – Theron as a super duper spy who can kick multiple asses simultaneously, action scenes with long takes and real punching and kicking as well as shifting cinematography and a ton of sex appeal. If only the story department worked a little harder to match the rest of the movie.
