Atomic Blonde: A TGON Review!

Atomic Blonde title

In 1947, a war between the Eastern countries and Western countries broke out. Just after the unruly and horrifying acts committed during World War 2, the Cold War happened. It spread out over the span of decades, only ending after a declaration of peace in 1991. During this time, in the year 1967, unrest came over the city of Berlin, Germany. A wall was built, and a divide was created between what was now known as East and West Berliners. In 1989, the East German government allowed all citizens to visit West Berlin, and the wall was soon torn down. (As stated in the film) This is not that story.

During the Cold War, word got out that A list containing every agent name for the KGB, CIA, and MI6 was out – whoever had the list had the upper hand. In an attempt to prevent their agents from being assassinated, the MI6 sent one of their best and brightest, an agent by the name of Gasciogne (Sam Hargrave). But when he’s killed in the field, they send in their second choice: Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron.) Her mission is to meet with Gasciogne’s contact in Berlin, David Percival (James McAvoy), an agent who had gone native to the punk ways of Berlin and locate the list, then return it to MI6. The vitality of her mission doesn’t lie JUST with the list getting out – it lies with the fact that one of MI6’s agents is a double, truly working for the KGB. That list contains their name and true nature as well.

Charlize Theron and James McAvoy make an insane acting team, along with rising star Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: a Secret Service, The Mummy), it’s hard not to love this raunchy, action-packed film. Based on the graphic novel “The Coldest City,” the cast and crew takeĀ Atomic Blonde to a whole new level. But this isn’t a movie for kids, in fact, the movie itself is rated R, and with good reason! So be wary about dragging the youths with you to see it; but on that note, be sure to check it out in theaters now! Thanks for reading!
