Excellently Made, With Visceral Atmosphere and Killer Action
30 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

What stands out most about Atomic Blonde is just how well made it is. The technical aspects are far above average for a simple action movie. The cinematography is beautiful. There is great use of rule of thirds, creating gorgeous on screen compilations. The editing works hand-in-hand with this, making for really spectacular transitions that only enhance the overall film. David Leitch does a brilliant job directing. Just in terms of the style and the atmosphere of the movie, he really nails a strong position, and never lets go of it. This world that's created feels like the real world, and yet it also feels enhanced and ultra-real, which just makes it all the more interesting to watch. The soundtrack and the score really worked in tandem with all the other visual elements in order to really draw out the atmosphere, and to make it this pulsing and vibrating world of darkness and bad-assery. Also under Leitch's jurisdiction were the performances. The cast across the board was really good, but Charlize Theron and James McAvoy really stood out. Theron obviously plays the cold, calculating bad-ass, while McAvoy goes for the more psychotic, manic killer. They play well off of each other, each with their own clear and distinct personalities. Toby Jones and John Goodman were also good in their roles, but their characters' screen times were so minimal that really anyone could have played them. There was no true shining moment for either of these actors in terms of their performances, just due to the lacking nature of their characters. But this was ultimately fine, as it meant we got more screen time with Theron and McAvoy...
