Charlize Theron out-Bond’s 007 and out-Bourne’s Jason in this action-packed thriller about a spy on the trail of an “atomic bomb of information.” Set just before the fall of the Berlin Wall, Theron’s agent is beset by betrayal on all sides, but is definitely up to the task, taking down attackers with pistols, rope, brains, and a high-heeled shoe. James McAvoy, Jon Goodman, and Sofia Boutella co-star.
As Thelma Adams of the New York Observer notes, Charlize Theron “performs the cold-as-ice secret agent shtick backwards, and in red patent-leather stilettos.”
Atomic Blonde opens Friday, August 25, and plays Friday at 7:30, Saturday & Sunday at 5:00 & 7:30, and Monday at 7:30.
