Set during the Cold War, Atomic Blonde tells the story of Lorraine, an MI6 agent who is sent in Berlin to look into the murder of her fellow agent and to find a missing list. This film was directed by David Leitch, who is currently directing Deadpool 2.
Let me be honest, this film is not worth remembering and trust me, it is a very forgettable movie despite the efforts of trying to make it “unique” and “extraordinary’.
Let’s start the review with the plot: well-developed but deja-vu, no suspense whatsoever, too many plot holes, too many endings and characters are too cliché and stereotyped. Even though there is a lot of action, the film is boring and I couldn’t wait for it to finish. I still liked the fighting scenes but still, nothing new, nothing amazing.
Visually, the movie is interesting; it is obvious that the director tried to go for a specific type that is different than what we usually see in movies but it is still cliché and inspired by other great movies [check photos below]. I liked the production design and the cinematography, I loved most of the shots but really, there is nothing astonishing and nothing that can make me fall in love with the film.
I say that this film is neither really bad, nor really good, it’s in the middle and because it’s in the middle, it’s forgettable, like even the acting is basic.
Like I mentioned earlier, I appreciated the efforts the director made to try to make it “different, visually” but I would still not recommend anyone to watch it, unless you really love Charlize Theron, then go watch it cause she is bomb.
That’s it for today’s review, if you found this post to be interesting/useful, please don’t forget to give it a ‘like’ and to follow my blog.
