The crown jewel of Her Majesty's Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.Written by
The movie is based on Antony Johnston and Sam Hart's 2012 graphic novel The Coldest City, which revolves around a spy who has to find a list of double agents who are being smuggled into the West. See more »
When Lorraine Broughton enters Berlin she is given a visa limited to the time necessary to prepare the return of James Gascoigne. She even fakes an application to gain some more days. This might have been necessary in the fifties or sixties. However in 1973 the United Kingdom became part of the EU (or EC at the time). As a citizen of another EU state agent Broughton did not need a visa to enter Germany and she could have stayed indefinitely. In fact, although not impossible, it was quite unlikely in 1989 that custom checks for flights within the EU would have been executed at all. See more »

Unexpectedly Great - But What Is With All The Dull Blue Tint???
The story line is fascinating and so is the performance and body of Charlize Theron. Literally the one movie from 2017 one could compare to classic James Bond but this time it goes with the standard female is da best formula of Hollywood.
