Atomic Blonde movie quotes bring the thrills to the film about a MI6 operative sent undercover to investigate double agents during the Cold War. The action spy thriller was directed by David Leitch using a screenplay Kurt Johnstad adapted from the graphic novel The Coldest City by Antony Johnston and Sam Hart. Atomic Blonde hit theaters in the United States on July 28, 2017.
In Atomic Blonde, it's 1989 and Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) is an experienced MI6 spy who is brought in by MI6 executive Eric Gray (Toby Jones) and CIA Agent Emmett Kurzfeld (John Goodman). Lorraine is asked about the murder of MI6 agent James Gasciogne, who, before his death stole information on double agents in the Soviet Union. She's also tasked with finding out who killed James and recovering the list of double agents.
So Lorraine sets out on her mission, including with the help of her operative David Percival (James McAvoy). But it doesn't take long for Lorraine and David to turn on one another as both seek the list for their own gain. So not only does Lorraine have to fight off all the Soviets trying to get the list, but also a former ally as well.

David Percival: This was never part of the plan.
Lorraine Broughton: It was part of mine.

As Lorraine talks about the murder of Agent Gasciogne with CIA Agent Emmett Kurtfeld and MI6 executive Eric Gray, she's asked if she knows the slain officer. While Lorraine doesn't especially answer with the complete truth, what's more important is the order she's given to find the killer.
