Kick-Ass Females In Film


Oscar® winner Charlize Theron stars as MI6’s most lethal assassin and the crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Lorraine Broughton, in ATOMIC BLONDE. When Lorraine is sent on a covert mission into Cold War Berlin, she must use all of the spy craft, sensuality and savagery she has to stay alive in the ticking time bomb of a city simmering with revolution and double-crossing hives of traitors. Broughton must navigate her way through a deadly game of spies to recover a priceless dossier while fighting ferocious killers along the way in this breakneck action-thriller from director David Leitch.  Theron is joined by James McAvoy, Sofia Boutella and John Goodman in what critics are calling “Totally badass”, Total Film.

To mark the release of Atomic Blonde on Digital Download 2nd December, Blu-ray™ and DVD on 11th December, we take a look at some of the most badass boss women in film.

Mrs. Smith (Mr. & Mrs. Smith)

When you think of kick-ass women, there is no one who epitomises this more so than Angelina Jolie. One of her best action movies is her 2005 hit Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

John (Brad Pitt) and Jane Smith (Angelina Jolie) live a mundane life in the suburbs in a struggling marriage. Or so we’re led to believe. Turns out, they are both assassins working for adversarial agencies.

When they are both assigned to kill the same target, Benjamin Danz (Adam Brody), a series of highly charged, fire-powered liaisons ensue until they eventually discover the real aim of the mission was to kill each other.
