"Who do we thank for this refreshing take on the smash-'em-up genre and this thoroughly modern woman in a Bechdel-beating blockbuster? Thank Charlize Theron." - Glamour

"Can a woman step in James Bond's shoes? Duh, says Charlize Theron, as she performs the cold-as-ice secret agent shtick backwards, and in red patent-leather stilettos." - Observer

"Brutal, beautiful and bad-ass, Atomic Blonde is the action heroine we've been waiting for." - The Hollywood News

A high-stakes, global action thriller that takes place in the city of Berlin, on the eve of the Wall's collapse and the shifting of superpower alliances. Charlize Theron portrays Lorrain Broughton, a top-level spy for MI6, who is dispatched to Berlin to take down a ruthless espionage ring that has just killed an undercover agent for reasons unknown. She is ordered to cooperate with Berlin station chief David Percival, and the two form an uneasy alliance, unleashing their full arsenal of skills in pursuing a threat that jeopardizes the West's entire intelligence operation.
