Charlize Theron and James McAvoy star in this thriller directed by David Leitch. Based on Antony Johnston's graphic novel of the same name, the story follows Lorraine Broughton (Theron), an elite MI6 spy tasked with taking down a secretive organisation responsible for the murder of an undercover agent in Berlin. With the Cold War coming to an end and allegiances shifting in the city, Broughton reluctantly joins up with local station chief David Percival (McAvoy) to conduct the investigation. However, with a missing list of double agents putting the West's entire intelligence network in serious danger, the pair must put their differences aside and work together in order to achieve their objectives. The cast also includes John Goodman, James Faulkner and Sofia Boutella.
When it focuses on double and triple-crosses, the film becomes a slog. Forget all that. Watch the impeccably made action scenes, the feel of the film, and the powerful Charlize Theron performance that anchors everything. Really enjoyed it, 8 out 10
