Atomic Blonde last night.
I rarely go to the cinema these days, so when I do I usually try to ensure it’s something I’m fairly certain I’m going to enjoy. Instead, got dragged to this by my mate who recently also dragged me to see John Wick 2 (basically his missus refuses to go see action films with him anymore). As such, I had low expectations.
Was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this therefore. The period setting is stylistically very pleasing, with the fashions being bang on. Usual smattering of top 80s tunes - the 80s really were the only period in history that other nations listened to German music weren’t they? The spy vs spy plot features probably several too many twists and it’s a little long, but the action keeps coming throughout, the supporting cast are decent and it just looks so good. This is also augmented by Charlize Theron being an absolute clothes horse and some reasonably gratuitous nude scenes - that said, Theron was producer on this so presumably she’s in control of her own image.
