Atomic Blonde - Quick Review

Friday, July 20, 2018

An undercover MI6 agent is sent to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents.*

I absolutely loved the use of the 80's color palette and the mix of 80's new wave songs with covers. Atomic Blonde quickly draws you in to the story, but fails to keep the energy going due to some slow pacing issues. Several scenes are definitely a little longer than they needed to be, which led to me tuning out several times while watching it. This is shame, because the story is actually very intriguing.
