Review: ‘Atomic Blonde,’ starring Charlize Theron and James McAvoy

Atomic Blonde succeeds as a thrill ride and another triumph for Charlize Theron, but not much else. It’s enjoyable and often quite rousing, but the highs are fleeting and somewhat hollow. If it wasn’t so streamlined, it would feel like a test run for a much better film waiting to burst through at any moment. It’s fine as it stands, but Atomic Blonde also smacks of missed opportunities.
