Netflix movies and shows: The Old Guard

First of all, if you haven’t seen The Old Guard already, stop right now and go watch it. I can wait for you to come back. It’s one of the best movies Netflix has put out in a while, if not ever. The way the story deals with immortality is absolutely brilliant. It’s based on a graphic novel by Greg Rucka who also wrote the screenplay.

The movie stars Charlize Theron KiKi Layne, Matthias Schoenaerts, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli, and Chiwetel Ejiofor. The film begins showing Andy, Booker, Joe, and Nicky as century-old warriors who are pretty much immortal. But that immortality has limits. They can only come back from a severe injury so many times.

They are hired by a former CIA operative to supposedly save some children in South Sudan. It turns out not TO be what they expected and their secret abilities are revealed to people who want to use it for evil.

While that’s going on, US Marine Nile Freeman is in Afghanistan and has her throat slit. But she doesn’t die. While sleeping, she has a disturbing dream and unintentionally, transmits it to Andy and her friends. Andy goes after her and takes her back to their bunker. This saves her from whatever the military was going to do to her.

After they tell Nile exactly what she is, they are ambushed and Joe and Nicky are taken to be tested on. Andy and Booker go after the company that took their friends while Nile decides to go back to her family. Andy also discovers that her immortality might be waning.

It takes the team combining all their powers and strength to get out of the pharmaceutical facility and to save Nick and Joe.

The ending of The Old Guard leaves a lot of questions open which hopefully means there will be at least one more film. If the response on Twitter is anything to go by, fans are dying to see more of this story.
