The female John Wick none of us asked for has arrived.
Atomic Blonde seems to have flown under most people’s radars until its red-band restricted trailer suddenly showed up on Friday. I will say this for it, I appreciate the fact the film shows Charlize Theron bruised and banged up from all of the fights she engages in. Too many movies ignore that and it’s annoying, so the fact a movie is acknowledging it is awesome.
Saldy, that is where a lot of the awesome ends in this trailer.
The cast is a good one, and I would watch John Goodman read a bed time story, but this is one of those films where you can tell this is all about the style and aesthetic of the film as opposed to the story. Sure, it looks nice, but will the story actually hold together? We’ll just have to wait and see.
Atomic Blonde hits theaters on July 28.
