Atomic Blonde kicks some butt in Bowen

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

IN A day and age where ac­tion movies are packed to the gills with CGI and con­stant ex­plo­sions, it’s re­fresh­ing to see some­thing dif­fer­ent in Atomic Blonde, now show­ing at the Bowen Sum­mer­gar­den Cin­ema.

Near the end of the Cold War, deadly MI6 op­er­a­tive Lor­raine Broughton (Char­l­ize Theron) is sent to a di­vided Berlin to re­trieve a list of spies that all sides are af­ter and to un­veil a dou­ble agent.

She also wants to find out who killed an­other Bri­tish spy who had ties to her.

Part­ner­ing with sta­tion chief David Per­ci­val, Lor­raine uses her unique set of skills to ac­com­plish the mis­sion.

Wild ac­tion se­quences mixed with high fash­ion keep this stan­dard, but com­pli­cated spy plot from fall­ing apart.

The fun is in watch­ing the el­e­gantly-dressed Char­l­ize Theron kicking butt to some
