Good.

It's action-packed with exquisite fight choreography, overcoming it's intricate narrative.

Go Charlize!

I really enjoyed this movie - I felt like a smash 'em up sort of movie. Most elements were covered - some epic shots and slow mo's. James McAvoy played a good guy/bad guy role, more bad guy. Good coverage of whatever country they were filming in!

Charlize stepping up and kicking butt, so yes!!

Charlize is absolutely the winner here shes just a delight, not a lady I would want to mess with. John Wick's director /producer Leitch he sure does love his stunt men and women he applauds their sheer tenacity and talent and pools them into everything he does. It's a complicated little plot with 80's cold war intrigue, berlin wall and all that intriguing...

more heroine-inflicted casualties per minute than some war movies

It’s strange logic to think that hyper-violent female stereotypes can make up for decades of weak or absent women in movies but that seems to be the current thing. Opinions on this will differ of course, as they will about the spy-thriller Atomic Blonde (2017). If you like frenetic pace, classic noir-espionage styling, and more heroine-inflicted casualties...

You don't go to operas for dancing or ballets for singing, and you don't see Atomic Blonde for anything but a badass female protagonist crunching bones and pulping faces in gratifyingly long takes or remarkable simulations thereof.

So much uncut hardboiled posturing proves exhausting over a nearly two-hour runtime, and with zero emotional stakes and a plot that is both difficult and seemingly pointless to follow, there's a fundamental emptiness behind all the flash.

Lorraine punches and is punched, and her body is soon mapped by bruises and abrasions. It's a lot of abuse for such puny returns, even if the fights are the best parts of "Atomic Blonde."

Turns out to be nothing more than a series of sometimes visually impressive, but perpetually banal sequences...

Theron, who did most of her own martial-arts stunts, is pure bruising poetry in motion. She's a stone-cold badass. How can you resist?

"Atomic Blonde" may be a delirious exercise in outré nonsense, but it can also be a brutally effective action picture when the inspiration strikes.

As enjoyable as Atomic Blonde can be at times, its main utility may be its demonstration that Theron deserves better than this.
