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

Early in the movie, where Charlize Theron is in a car fighting two escorts, the tunnel sequence in Berlin features the same tunnel in Captain America: Civil War (2016), where Black Panther chases down Bucky Barnes. It is also the same tunnel in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015), where Katniss Everdeen and her team try to get to President Snow. See more »

Goofs

Lorraine arrives at Tempelhof airport in 1989 on a Pan Am flight. That would be impossible, as Pan Am (and other major carriers) moved operations to Otto Lilienthal Airport (Tegel) in 1975. 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.

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.
