The Old Guard 2020 ★★★½
THIS AIN'T YOUR TYPICAL SUPERHERO FILM!!!
The Old Guard stars Charlize Theron as leader of a Mercenary group of fighters with a special gift of immortality, as they can all die and come back to life or regenerate if injured. The plot of the film is that someone from the CIA learns of their special abilities and they are being hunted by a Mad Scientist who heads up a Big Pharma company and is looking to capture them in order study and basically dissect them. Anybody who knows me, knows that I am an Action Junkie so this film was right up my alley. Lots of great fight scenes with a very original and interesting story. They are basically Comic Book Superheros, but what I loved about this film is unlike Marvel and DC films, they don't really have any other special powers, other then being immortal. They can be hurt and can bleed, but they can't fly or don't have any superhero strength or anything like that so I feel this made for a very interesting and complex story. I highly recommend checking this one out on Netflix!!!
