The crown jewel of Her Majesty's Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton 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 to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.

The action is good, the intrigue a little too boilerplate. Theron is beautiful to watch and listen to. All in all a workmanlike job that fills up a rainy Saturday.

This movie is a slog. It reminded me of my experience watching movies as a little kid, where I could appreciate the action and vaguely knew who was supposed to be good or bad and could sense the peril that people may have been in, but had no real clue as to the actual plot. I can't imagine who would actually pay close enough attention or be entertained enough to follow all the twists and turns. Oh that guy is the good guy, wait now he just became the bad guy, wait now he said this comment, clearly he's actually been the good guy all along. Whatever. No one smiled in this cold joyless movie and no one will smile watching it. There is a somewhat redeeming long no-cut action shot on a staircase near the end. It is technically impressive and owed to the audience after enduring the first hour+.

Kick ass movie, great rendition of the comic book heroine. She is a master spy , always a good 4 or 5 steps ahead of all the other sharks in this spy game.

movie would have been more engaging if the acting was more to the plot instead of substituting that with the violence. the intrigue was weak but would have been stronger by for instance showing more detail meetings with satchel and his double dealings. i dont go for the violence too much but movie was ok its just not one i would watch over again.

Charlize was great, the action was creative and intense, the plot was garbage.

I generally don't like graphic violence. But many movies have some violence. I've turned off shows within a few moments of putting them on to play because it was just gross and all the movie seemed to be about. Some of them were definitely B grade movies.

All I remember about this one is chase scenes and them trying to leave the city.

If there's one thing I learned from this movie is Charlize Theron is one helluva an action star. Plot was alright with spies of many nation trying to retrieve something that every country wants as is always the case in the backdrop of the Berlin Wall coming down. But the fight action stood out with Charlize doing long...very long action scenes. Fights looked realistic. Charlize could definitely take on Xena warrior princess or Wonder Woman.

Checked it out on a whim. It turned out to be a typical Class B movie with a big named star showing a bit of skin while methodically reading a mediocre script and performing fight scenes. Pretty good time waster.

Based on a graphic novel. In other words, a comic book. And everything about the movie -- the characters, story, action scenes -- reflects that level of sophistication.

Lorraine Broughton: I've read your file. I've also read your dog file. So let's cut the crap, shall we? This whole hungover, show-up-late, don't-know-which-way-is-up act, I'm not buying it. I trust you about as far as I can throw you.

David Percival: "It's a double pleasure to deceive the deceiver."

Lorraine Broughton: Niccolo Machiavelli. It was on your shelf.

David Percival: Oh my God, I think I f*cking love you!

Lorraine Broughton: That's too bad.

Berlin is the wild west.

Gone fxcking feral. Berlin is the Wild West. If that bloody wall comes crashing down, we don't want to be under it. If the Russians get that list, we're all buggered sideways.
===

If it'd make you more comfortable, I could stand behind the mirror with everybody else. But it's a little crowded back there.

===
We were just going over your file. I see your Russian is excellent. An expert in escape and evasion. Proficient in intelligence collection and hand-to-hand combat. It's an impressive set of skills. Knowing the Reds as I do, she'll need to use every damn one of them.

It's an atomic bomb of information that could extend the Cold War for another 40 years.
===
Without that list, why shouldn't I take you outside and shoot you in the fxcking head?
===
You know those movies where the picture just starts to slow down... and melt? Then catch fire?Well... that's Berlin.
===
You know, I've been in Berlin a long time, and I think I know every doorman of every decent shithouse, borderline decent flophouse both sides of the wall.
===
It's like walking a tightrope or playing the bagpipes. You can either do it or you can't.

===
You expose this bastard, Satchel, and we'll hang him for treason. You might find yourself taking tea at Buckingham Palace.

Your library includes Larry Flynt?

East Berliners stormed the West German embassies in Czechoslovakia earlier this week, as the Czech government has begun to wave the refugees through checkpoints with few questions. One has to ask how long the East Berlin government can hold on...
