The Old Guard

Release Year: 2020 

Directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood

Starring Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli, Harry Melling, Veronica Ngo, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Chiwetel Ejiofor

The Old Guard premiered on Netflix in the summer of 2020, and it’s easily one of the best Netflix movies of all time. There’s so much to love in this action thriller from Gina Prince-Bythewood.

In the movie, Charlize Theron’s Andy leads a group of immortals who are hired as mercenaries to clean up human rights problems around the globe. Unfortunately, they are not the only ones who know of their existence, and they are hunted because of that fact.

The Old Guard 2 is officially happening on Netflix. We’re expecting to see The Old Guard 2 on Netflix sometime in 2023 or 2024, hopefully. We’ll share the official release date when we find out.

If you like action movies with great casts, excellent storytelling, and epic action/fight sequences, The Old Guard is the movie for you on Netflix. You need to watch this movie. Even if you don’t like action movies, you still need to watch this movie.

Verdict: WATCH
