The director and stunt coach were impressed by Charlize Theron's ability to learn complex fight sequences.

Atomic Blonde is one of my all-time fav movies.  Directed by David Leitch (one half of the John Wick team), and based on a graphic novel, the film is brilliant imo :)

Theron is outstanding in the fight sequences, but the film is also so well-made in other regards.  The color palette alone with its burning neon against the cold grey is great.  The soundtrack features some classics, and the supporting cast is awesome as well. James McAvoy in particualar.

The famous "10-minute, single shot stairwell" fight is amazing.  And yes, technically it is not done in 1-take, but the choreography, pacing and Theron's performance are simply brilliant imo.

If anyone has not seen this film, I totally recommend it.  Well written, well paced, well acted and well directed.

Theron has long said she would like to make a sequel, and last I heard, development had started late last year.  Fingers crossed :)
