Set during the height of the Cold War, this gripping thriller follows a female spy on a dangerous undercover mission in Berlin. Tasked with investigating the murder of a fellow agent, the spy must locate a missing list of double agents her former colleague was attempting to smuggle into the West. Based on Antony Johnston's graphic novel of the same name, "The Coldest City" stars Academy Award®-winner Charlize Theron, James McAvoy and Sofia Boutella. David Leitch ("John Wick") directs from a screenplay by Kurt Johnstad ("300").
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Atomic Blonde gets enough mileage out of its stylish action sequences -- and ever-magnetic star -- to make up for a narrative that's somewhat less hard-hitting than its protagonist.

Powerful woman at core of stylish, very violent spy story.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Atomic Blonde is a spy film set in the late '80s and that it's intensely violent, with lots and lots of fighting. It's similar to John Wick but with a woman (Charlize Theron) as the main character. Teens may well be interested, but be ready for mature content of every stripe. Characters shoot and stab each other, blood spurts and sprays, and there are dead bodies, car chases/crashes, people getting strangled and bashed with blunt objects, and much more. There's brief but repeated partial nudity (a woman's bare breasts and bottom are seen), a man is shown in bed with three women, and two women have fairly graphic sex. Language includes "f--k," "c--ksucker," and "s--t." Stolichnaya vodka is featured prominently, and the main character drinks it frequently, though she never seems drunk. There's also frequent smoking. While the main character is unquestionably equal to her male counterparts, she also kills without consequence and lies, making her a complicated (at best!) role model.
