This is not quite so in "Atomic Blonde," a postwar thriller set in the final moments of the Cold War (1989 Berlin) starring Charlize Theron as the MI6 spy Lorraine Broughton.If that film didn't prove that Theron is today's most badass action star, "Atomic Blonde" – while not anywhere near the kinetic explosion of "Fury Road" – will certainly make it official.The soundtrack, especially early in the film, is bludgeoningly prominent.The film, technically speaking, gets off to a rough start when a body is sent flying by a ramming car in the kind of blatantly unrealistic CGI fling that ruins movies.A hermetic burst of filmmaking finesse, the sequence has nothing to do with the rest of film.Theron doesn't so much as dominate "Atomic Blonde" as steadily subjugate every other soul in the film – and those in the audience – into her complete command.
