Storyline

The crown jewel of Her Majesty's Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.

Trivia

With few exceptions, the soundtrack predominantly features songs released in 1983 or earlier, which is not in keeping with the film's November 1989 setting. West Berlin was a very hipster city as a result of government incentives intended to attract a young population: relocation expenses were paid, taxes were subsidized, and male residents were exempt from Germany's mandatory military service. Songs like 99 Luftballons (1983), Major Tom (1983), and Der Kommissar (1982) would have been hopelessly passé in 1989. No West Berlin nightclub at the time would have been caught dead playing The Politics of Dancing (1983), except maybe on a retro night.

Detroit techno and other early house music swept Europe in the late 1980s and would have been common in trendy Berlin clubs, but these genres have become relatively obscure, particularly in North America and Asia where they achieved very limited mainstream success. To appeal to the general moviegoing public in 2017, the filmmakers presumably chose better-known, more archetypically 80s songs. See more »

Crazy Credits

The end credits are done in a green faux CRT-style font and end with an animation similar to an old CRT television turning off. See more »

Alternate Versions

In India, mandatory censorship cuts were required before the film could be granted an 'A' certificate from the CBFC (Indian Film Censors); these cuts completely removed the sex scene between Theron and Boutella, sight of Theron's bare bottom, shots of a woman's nipples through her t-shirt and a scene in which Theron is shown topless, in addition to this cuts were made to the subtitles removing uses of the terms: 'c**t', 'cock, 'balls', 'bitch', 'prick' and 'cocksucker'. However the language itself is still audible on the soundtrack. No cuts were made to violence. See more »

Exaggerated Positive Ratings
14 October 2019 | by lyndonmichahSee all my reviews

So many reviews here claim this film is full of violence and bi girls getting it on but the truth is different. There is violence but not all the time and there is a little non-graphic girl on girl but they are very short and not at all explicit. Therefore only 7/10. They would have to go all the way in the sequel if they want a higher rating from me, but we all know sequels are worse than their prequels so don't hold much hope.
