ATOMIC BLONDE is an espionage action drama in which MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton is sent to Cold War Berlin to recover a missing list of double agents.

Violence

There are frequent scenes of strong violence. These include people being shot, resulting in large spurts of blood into the air or onto walls. People are also stabbed with ice picks and keys. There are extended sequences of hand-to-hand combat featuring heavy punches and kicks delivered to faces and bodies, leaving people heavily bloodied in the aftermath.

Language

There is infrequent very strong language ('c**t'). Strong language ('c**ksucker' and 'f**k') is frequent. Other bad language includes 'prick', 'buggered', 'bastard', 'balls', 'bollocks', 'crap', 'arse' and 'God'.

Other issues include female breast nudity - both natural, during bathing, and in a sexual context as two women make love. There are also verbal sex references including comments about whiskey being from the 'tit' of the Virgin Mary and how a man's 'balls' are impressive.
