Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Atomic Blonde (2017)

Directed by David Leitch

Starring Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Eddie Marsan, John Goodman


All style, no substance. Characters trying to outcool each other with dialogue, Tarantino-esque levels of nonsensical violence, and a 80’s soundtrack that is so in your face that it’s Baby Driver annoying. The punches and kicks and plot twists don’t matter because I don’t give a crap about any of the characters.

Theron’s got some moves, the one fight scene in the stairwell is pretty impressive. Nice to see the previously benign McAvoy playing a string of bad characters lately.

Enough of he Wilhelm scream already. It’s a sign that directors don’t take their film seriously.
