Lots of subtle but yet "close enough" details and a great movie set to make you believe it was 1989, not just the cars but the tech like the Sony Walkman, telephones, clothing, the music score...excellent stuff

Charlize is fantastic too.
I also saw it last week and I agree. Cool old cars, good music, and fun action.

I am surprised that nobody mentioned the hilarious detail in Atomic Blonde where the body of a full grown man is stored in the frunk of an 80s era 911.

You would be amazed at what you can stuff in a 964 boot.

People are pretty bendy when they don't care if it hurts, or so I've heard.

I watched it a couple of weeks ago. My only complaint is the excessive smoking - it seemed like every damn scene she or someone had to be lighting up a cigarette. I hate smoking, so that was a huge detraction for me.

Take a corkscrew in the neck, and see what happens. Believe me, I am well aware of the difference size makes, but I didn't feel slighted by the movie. I felt it was pretty clear she was over matched with the one fellow, but I'm not looking for 100% realism in a movie any more than I expect it from certain news networks.

As they say in court, you can't prosecute us, we are strictly entertainment...

I just watched it this weekend; thought it was great. Loved all the car choices. The female vs. male fight dynamics didn't detract from the movie for me.

But I do agree... stuffing the dude in the frunk made me chuckle.

Well yes but that's how it was back then. I remember smoke filled night clubs, restaurants and offices.
Thankfully we've made some changes. Looking back it seems like another world.

Absolutely. It always amazes me when watching old movies that show ashtrays on every desk in an office, or I chuckle when I see patients lighting up in a hospital. I was watching something that was quite old the other day, maybe from the 30s, and there was a woman that was going room to room in the hospital selling cigarettes and candies.
