Hell hath no fury…

Hell hath no fury…

As Atomic Blonde arrives on Virgin Movies, get to know seven of the greatest warrior women on film

 

We absolutely give this film the fluorescent green light. Atomic Blonde is a neon-soaked thrill-seeker’s paradise, with a superb lead performance from a kick-ass Charlize Theron

Theron (Monster) plays Lorraine Broughton, an MI6 field agent in Berlin before the fall of the Wall, in this adaptation of graphic novel The Coldest City. Think Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy meets Kill Bill, with a killer soundtrack to boot, including David Bowie, Marilyn Manson and The Clash.

 

Broughton is sent to investigate the murder of a fellow agent, while reclaiming a list of double agents that has gone walkabout. Along the way she gets into hot water with fellow agent David Percival (James McAvoy, X-Men), exhausts her MI6 superior Eric Gray (Toby Jones, The Hunger Games) and gets jiggy with French spy Delphine (Sofia Boutella, Kingsman: The Secret Service).

 

So in honour of our new favourite heroine, here’s our list of the ladies who have redefined action movies.
