At the initiative of the actress and producer Charlize Theron, who stood at the origins of this tape, originally shot was attracted by the tandem of David Litch and Chad Stahelski (“John Wick”), past performers and stunt Directors. However, due to conflicting schedules, the two Directors had to split up: Stahelski started filming the second Wick, and work on “the Explosive blonde” Litch continued alone. And, unfortunately, we cannot say that it all happened smoothly.
The main drawback of this movie was its plot confusing, chaotic, with inconsistent tempo, intense excessive number of conversational episodes, and, overall, a bit alienated from the characters, and the ending leaves a lot of unanswered questions. So when you view becomes apparent (and the creators of “Blonde” is not going to hide), that the main emphasis was on the quality of the choreography of the action scenes, which in the end was really brutal, tough and natural, in the best tradition of the aforementioned “John Wick,” on the selection of musical accompaniment, jewelry made by tape composer Tyler Bates, as well as in creating juicy , neon style with prevalence of blue-pink-red hues of the color palette.
We have: an ill-conceived characters, lame on both feet plot, good atmosphere of pre-revolutionary Berlin, juicy picture, small lesbian erotic scene Theron and Sofia Boutella (“Kingsman: the Secret service”, “the Mummy” (2017)), eccentric James McAvoy, decent music, consisting mainly of the hits of the 80s and 90s, as well as a variety of well-shot fight scenes, which reaches apotheosis in extra-long, action-Packed take almost without mounting adhesions in the second half of the tape.
“The explosive blonde” the story is very weak, but technically sound and strong spy Thriller-a Thriller with the beautiful Charlize Theron, a neon atmosphere, an excellent soundtrack and a small but superbly staged battle scenes.
