The key fight sequence that unfolds in a real Berlin building lasts for almost 10 minutes in what appears to be an unbroken take when, in fact, the sequence comprises almost 40 separate shots seamlessly stitched together. Though filmed chronologically from start to finish, nearly half the splices needed some degree of CGI assistance. Swish-pans provided the simplest solutions for smooth cuts and door frames provided vertical seams for smoothly bridging some segments. See more »
The underground trains shown are definitely not a type that ever has been used in Berlin. In addition they are not yellow. Since 1929 all Berlin buses and underground trains are painted yellow. The trains are correctly tagged with a BVG (Berlin public transport) logo, however a modern one, not in use in the eighties. See more »

Great film or what? It had it all. Action, intrigue, spying, fashionable woman who is well put together, sexiness, zaniness and violence. It was great.
This chick is hot and yet she kicked rear end. She didn't have to be ugly to be empowered. I loved it.
I wish only people would stop comparing it to John Wick. That film was stupid. At the end, the whole world and 1,000 people around them were all part of this secret underworld. That made no sense. Atomic Blonde did make sense.
