American Assassin: 5 More Espionage Thrillers to Seek Out

With the release of American Assassin, now in cinemas, we thought it would make sense to glance back at the espionage thriller sub-genre at the movies...


Released only a month ago, while Charlize Theron going all John Wick on us may be most remembered for its balletic, Krav Maga theatrics and cool lighting, let’s not forget the setting: 1989, right at the end of the Cold War, in snowy Berlin fighting not just sinister Ruskies but also some very dubious Brits and Americans. American Assassin may not be a period piece like Atomic Blonde but they’re most certainly both playing in the same spy thriller wheelhouse, even if they’re thirty years apart and not quite stylistically equal.
