Checked out a great movie this afternoon Atomic Blonde by Director David Leitch.  The primary conflict in this action spy thriller  is woman versus man as Charlize Theron stars as Lorraine Broughton, a C.I.A. operative posing an an MI-6(British Intelligence) agent. Set in the divided city of Berlin during the 1989 East German Uprising, the story focuses on a fictitious covert spy mission towards the end of the Cold War.  In reality  this was when the Berlin Wall was broken through and eventually demolished and the communist rule of East German President Erik Honnecker overthrown through a popular revolt.  Lorraine Broughton is assigned by MI-6 to enter East Berlin, the Soviet-occupied sector of that city, to retrieve extremely sensitive information which could expose high level officials within NATO’s intelligence community. She shows off her lethal skills in a  fight for her life during extremely intense and graphic hand to hand combat scenes and  realistic  gun battle.  Proficient in German, Swedish and Russian, Agent Broughton is also an expert at covert intelligence gathering and unarmed combat, effectively trailing one of her contacts, who turns out to be a traitor, from the   shadows.   Her enemies mainly comprise Stasi (East German Intelligence) and Soviet K.G.B. agents.   Standing five feet nine and a half inches tall,  Charlize Theron is perfect for this role as she possesses an exceptionally imposing athletic physique for a 42-year old woman.  Her ongoing physical training over the course of many years has included weight training, resistance training, yoga, gymnastics and swimming.  In preparation for her role as Lorraine Broughton, she was reportedly put through at least three months of intense martial arts training.   This is one intensely exciting action movie that is a must see for all action Fans. Well worth the wait in line.  (Article by Freelance Writer B.E. Shibley)
