Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to 'Sparrow School,' a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. Her first mission, targeting a C.I.A. agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations.
In the near future, Major Mira Killian is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world's most dangerous criminals.
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
One character makes a brief, jaundiced reference to David Hasselhoff being in town. Hasselhoff was indeed a minor figure in German pop culture during the period surrounding the fall of the Berlin Wall. In a March 2013 piece in London's The Guardian, Emma Hartley reported that his song "Looking for Freedom" was number one on the German charts for eight weeks in the summer of 1989 (several months before the wall fell in November 1989); and on New Year's Eve that year, Hasselhoff performed a concert atop what was then left of the wall.

The British Berlin agent says "You do the math." A Brit would say "maths", and the Americansim would not have been used by a Brit who had lived in Berlin for 10 years during the Cold War. See more »

In India, mandatory censorship cuts were required before the film could be granted an 'A' certificate from the CBFC (Indian Film Censors); these cuts completely removed the sex scene between Theron and Boutella, sight of Theron's bare bottom, shots of a woman's nipples through her t-shirt and a scene in which Theron is shown topless, in addition to this cuts were made to the subtitles removing uses of the terms: 'c**t', 'cock, 'balls', 'bitch', 'prick' and 'cocksucker'. However the language itself is still audible on the soundtrack. No cuts were made to violence. See more »
Yeah, this has "sexy hot chick" written all over it. I simply love this movie and it is in my top 3 of 2017. It has it all: Beautiful babes, action packed as hell and easy to watch while not being simple in any sense of the word. It is tongue in cheek all the way and keeps your attention every minute of the ride. If you like your action sexy and flaunting, you need to watch this movie.
I may still talk my wife into a menage a trois
