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.

Goofs

David's Porsche 911 (aka 964) is the US-spec model, given by the pair of rubber bumperettes shown between the bumper-mounted fog lights all 964s are required to have per federal regulations and a lack of amber side markers, for a film set in West Germany. This is unless he shipped it from the United States which would have been highly unlikely for a German car that became available in Europe from August 1988 and not sold in the US until mid-1989.

Quotes

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 »

Unexpectedly Great - But What Is With All The Dull Blue Tint???
7 October 2018 | by crcybjiaSee all my reviews

The story line is fascinating and so is the performance and body of Charlize Theron. Literally the one movie from 2017 one could compare to classic James Bond but this time it goes with the standard female is da best formula of Hollywood.
