Atomic Blonde is a surprise. The story has been told quite a few timesbut what makes this movie watchable is charlize theron. Watchable? Imeant SUPERB. She is amazing in this movie. The action scenes broughtthe movie to life from the dull story it tries to bring. In fact, allthe actors are great and the only complaint is the directing. It couldcould have been shot more fast paced. But the movie does correct thisthrough the second half, so that makes it worthwhile. I didn't expectany twists in this story but towards the end, BOY, nailed it. In theend Atomic Blonde is charlize theron's movie whose kicks and punchesare too prized to be missed. So bring the popcorn and get an AtomicBlonded experience.

Atomic Blond it's an action movie, with a lavish style and the music shuffle on just to enjoy the moment. The movie follows the same rules of action movies from the 80's and the 90's: you have the problematic mission, the good "guy", the bad guys, the questionable guy and the sexy girls (women). But because a woman is in the lead role, Charlize Theron (instead of Mel Gibson, Bruce Willis or Silvester Stallone), the dynamic of the movie is a fresh breeze. She's not clumsy or in conflict with her abilities, (like most of the female agents in movies) she is a great agent send to deal with a problem and in the processes stumbles with an another problem that she handles in the best way, she knows possible. The thriller/mystery plot stumbles a little bit in the narrative, but that doesn't spoil the thrill of the action sequences, the beautiful choreography of the fights or the great music, and fixes some of 80's and 90's problems, like only strong and intelligent men, only silly sexy girls, no women, racist and sexist jokes, all of that without being boring. It is a popcorn action movie inspired by 80's with the intelligence of today's society.
