Goofs

When Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) emerges on to the streets of London at the start of the film, the very distinctive Portcullis House (a black building with numerous faux industrial chimneys on the roof) is clearly visible next to Big Ben. This building was built between 1992 and 2001, long after the events of Atomic Blonde from 1989. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Ronald Reagan: East and West do not mistrust each other because we're armed. We're armed because we mistrust each other. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.

Pretty film

Films like this don't come around too often any longer. There is action, there is a cat fight, there is man-woman and woman-woman and it is so cool to watch.

Theron is certainly a cure for sore eyes.

Unfortunately, it is the usual West good and all others bad, but... Charlize is doable.
