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 »

80's action with today's intelligence.
6 September 2017 | by myaskywalkerSee all my reviews

Atomic Blond it's an action movie, with a lavish style and the music shuffle on just to enjoy the moment. The movie follows the same rules of action movies from the 80's and the 90's: you have the problematic mission, the good "guy", the bad guys, the questionable guy and the sexy girls (women). But because a woman is in the lead role, Charlize Theron (instead of Mel Gibson, Bruce Willis or Silvester Stallone), the dynamic of the movie is a fresh breeze. She's not clumsy or in conflict with her abilities, (like most of the female agents in movies) she is a great agent send to deal with a problem and in the processes stumbles with an another problem that she handles in the best way, she knows possible. The thriller/mystery plot stumbles a little bit in the narrative, but that doesn't spoil the thrill of the action sequences, the beautiful choreography of the fights or the great music, and fixes some of 80's and 90's problems, like only strong and intelligent men, only silly sexy girls, no women, racist and sexist jokes, all of that without being boring. It is a popcorn action movie inspired by 80's with the intelligence of today's society.
