The one reason Charlize Theron was able to kick so much ass in Atomic Blonde

You might have assumed that Charlize Theron, as an Academy Award-winning actress, would be above starring in films where the primary goal is to see as many people being beaten, bloodied and killed as its screen-time will allow.

Blake Lively to beat up a lot of people in 'The Rhythm Section'

Here’s an unpopular opinion: Blake Lively was better in “The Shallows” than Leonardo DiCaprio was in “The Revenant.” Yes, “The Shallows” — the movie with the shark. It wouldn’t seem to have much in common with a 2 ½ hour long take parade...

In Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver,” Ansel Elgort sure knows how to drive a car. He plays Baby, a getaway driver, a veteran despite being in his early 20s. Baby’s shtick is something else: He likes to listen to music as he speeds away from the pigs: The Damned, Jon Spencer Blues...

How crappy was it when Charlize Theron killed that girl in The Fate of the Furious?

“The Fate of the Furious” is a movie where Vin Diesel races a car that’s on fire — backwards. It has Jason Statham battling untold minions, all while holding a baby. During the climax, our team of speed junkies have to outrace a submarine. And then somewhere in the middle,...
