Very slow and boring. Don't bother.

This is a cool rollercoaster of a spy thriller, with a superior performance I thought from James McAvoy. It may not be entirely academic for the period (see "The Lives of Others" if you haven't), but the action sequences are really visceral, both Siouxsie Sioux & Depeche Mode made the soundtrack, & you do get a feel for the cultural flow & complexity of Berlin at the time. At one point a man approaches Broughton in a bar & she snarls at him, "I'm not speaking German tonite." Among a few other moments the ending *really annoyed me, but it's still overflowing with badazz style & choreography, & she's a hero with a heart. Bonus material: IKEA lamp fight...!? CR

It was a good movie, but not terrific. I was tired and fell asleep and missed about 30 minuets.
No question she could handle herself and thus there was a lot of action. She often took on several large men at a time.

The "Stairwell" fight scene may arguably be one of the greatest action sequences of all time.
7 solid minutes of the best interwoven choreography, editing, and (I'm quite sure) CGI that I've ever seen.
This alone is worth watching Atomic Blonde for.
I was absolutely blown away.

The soundtrack is fantastic, the story and acting both very good, and visually it's well above par.
There is no better action movie with a Female protagonist.

Great action sequences and a superior performance by James McAvoy. Sadly, I could never get emotionally invested in the characters to care what happened to them. A 2 out of 5 stars.

Really good soundtrack to go with high intensity spy action film. I’m not sure I had it figured out by the end of the film, but I’m glad I watched it. Fabulous long shot action sequence puts you in the middle of all the intensity.

I was surprised at how much I liked this....great fight scene in the middle, good main character...my only (big) problem was if you are fan of '80s fashion, this has NONE in it despite the era it's supposed to be taking place in....all men didn't wear beards then, no one wore black nail polish and certainly no one had ever had beach waves....and shoulder pads were gigantic...and those are just a few of the anachronistic details.

This is an action flick with an espionage plot, in which bad guys that should have died many times over but somehow came back for more violence. Once you have accepted the fact that there is no depth in it, the viewing can still be enjoyable for what it is.

Don't bother with this one. I could not get interested in this one at all. I found it to be slow and boring. Would not recommend it.

Nine copies and I get the one that doesn't work after first half hour. Don't know who was the double agent. Jason Bourne it was not.

Gone fxcking feral. Berlin is the Wild West. If that bloody wall comes crashing down, we don't want to be under it. If the Russians get that list, we're all buggered sideways.
===

If it'd make you more comfortable, I could stand behind the mirror with everybody else. But it's a little crowded back there.

===
We were just going over your file. I see your Russian is excellent. An expert in escape and evasion. Proficient in intelligence collection and hand-to-hand combat. It's an impressive set of skills. Knowing the Reds as I do, she'll need to use every damn one of them.

It's an atomic bomb of information that could extend the Cold War for another 40 years.
===
Without that list, why shouldn't I take you outside and shoot you in the fxcking head?
===
You know those movies where the picture just starts to slow down... and melt? Then catch fire?Well... that's Berlin.
===
You know, I've been in Berlin a long time, and I think I know every doorman of every decent shithouse, borderline decent flophouse both sides of the wall.
===
It's like walking a tightrope or playing the bagpipes. You can either do it or you can't.

This whole hungover, show-up-late, don't-know-which-way-is-up act, I'm not buying it. I trust you about as far as I can throw you.

East Berliners stormed the West German embassies in Czechoslovakia earlier this week, as the Czech government has begun to wave the refugees through checkpoints with few questions. One has to ask how long the East Berlin government can hold on...

That's quite a view. 70 miles of barbed wire, 310 guard towers, 65 anti-vehicle trenches, 40,000 Soviet-trained, heavily armed frontier troops. All that, and 5,000 GDR citizens still had the brass balls to escape.
===
Look at all these hedonists. It's like a beautiful woman gone wrong.
===
We've been in the trenches long enough to know that at times like this Berlin has its own set of rules. I can give you information that will keep the balance. Now, are you in or out?
===
You smell like a Stasi officer. Shave off that moustache. Use that soap and cologne. It's from the West. You can't take anything from the East.
