Film of the day: Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde

Charlize Theron lays down some serious smack in this stylish spy thriller, starring as an ass-kicking MI6 agent, Lorraine Broughton, despatched to a chaotic, paranoia-ridden Berlin just before the fall of the Wall.

Her assignment is to clear up an embarrassing mess involving the death of a fellow operative and the theft of some super-sensitive intel, a not-sosimple task which requires her to rendezvous with man in the field David Percival (James McAvoy) – a vodka-soaked catastrophe whose allegiances are less than crystal clear.

Masterminding the impressively lean and muscular action sequences is director and former stunt co-ordinator David Leitch.
