David Litch, Director of the first “John Wick”, released in wide release this action-Packed Thriller “the Atomic blonde” about the confrontation of the secret services.
November 1989. Berlin, a melting pot of the time. That is about to crumble the Berlin wall and bury under its ruins the former bipolar world. Aktiviziruyutsya various intelligence services, sent to the epicenter of the events of their best agents. In the rebel capital of Germany arrives Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron, “devil’s Advocate”, “the fast and the furious 8”) an agent of the Secret intelligence service of Her Majesty. Certain circumstances she is forced to join forces with his undercover colleague David Percival (James McAvoy, “Split”, “X-Men: Apocalypse”) and to perform the task. The failure of the operation is threatened by the disclosure of the whole spy network and geopolitical consequences.
The viewers of the picture about spies is unlikely to surprise by the novelty of the plot, but the “Atomic blonde” a rare representative of the genre that captures attention from the first scene and reluctantly let him go just for the closing credits. The two-hour duration is virtually no sags. For juicy put chases, fights and shootings in the style of “Three X” followed by a chamber scene with a play on words, the silent looks and the confrontation of ideologies not worse than the “Bridge of spies” by Steven Spielberg (2016).
The heroine Charlize Theron Queen crossing the black-and-white Board according to its own rules. Her gift of gab, perseverance, and insight from frame to frame multiplied on sophisticated sexuality and a languid look of cigarette smoke, sometimes provoking scenes, rated 18+.
And if Theron the Queen, James McAvoy is, of course, Trump ACE, which hit any scene with his participation. A favorite of many after the “split” for the kaleidoscope of personalities your character in “the Atomic blonde” he acts the complete opposite of Lorraine Broughton, a womanizer, a noisy reveller, black marketeers jeans and alcohol. However, his hero Perceval retains the clarity of mind, feeling of duty and an honor to beat his partner.
The rear of the title duet properly cover the actors of the old school (John Goodman, Eddie Marsan) and the new wave (bill Skarsgard and Sofia Boutella, which did little to alleviate his karma after the disastrous “Mummy”).
Thought the script, quality cinematography and soundtrack, covering the history, will not prevent the viewer to see a parody of “Atomic blonde”. Subtle, but noticeable arrow it pierces the whole movie, and towards the end in the open increases the degree of the absurdity of battle scenes. On a two hour journey to the captions from the corner with a cry of “Tovarisch!” repeatedly misses the canonical Soviet spy bearded big man in the ushanka, drinking vodka and blazer of Berlin in the “Field”.
Such a bias inherent in almost all Hollywood films about the Cold war, but in the film David Letch he definitely plays her in the plus balances the sexiness of the main spy and violent temper of her partner.
Skillfully mixed the proportions of a Thriller, detective and erotic will give the viewer bored during the session. “Atomic blonde” turned out like an atomic explosion is able to cover everyone in the near radius.
