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.

I remember when I was in the cinema watching The Package (1989) - I just didn't want it to finish. I felt the same way with Atomic Blonde. Wow - what a movie.
The setting is 1989, and the team made quite an effort to make it as authentic as possible. The clothes, the cars, the weapons - even the classic Tetris game played by the Russians, which indeed was a Russian invention.
Every single scene is well thought out, and the story unfolds nicely. This is hands down the best movie I've seen in years.
