I have to admit that I love a good action movie. I love sitting on my couch and watching them and being able to yell at the screen and act like an idiot reenacting the scenes or thinking I am by kicking my legs in the air like a banshee.
And hey, maybe that is why I love to be able to watch them on Netflix. Netflix released the trailer for The Old Guard and I got excited. Even if it stars Charlize Theron (not my favorite actress, but hey).
The Old Guard, based on the graphic novel of the same name by Greg Rucka stars Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli, Harry Melling, Van Veronica Ngo, with Matthias Schoenaerts and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Led by a warrior named Andy (Charlize Theron), a covert group of tight-knit mercenaries with a mysterious inability to die have fought to protect the mortal world for centuries. But when the team is recruited to take on an emergency mission and their extraordinary abilities are suddenly exposed, it’s up to Andy and Nile (KiKi Layne), the newest soldier to join their ranks, to help the group eliminate the threat of those who seek to replicate and monetize their power by any means necessary. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Greg Rucka and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (LOVE & BASKETBALL, BEYOND THE LIGHTS), THE OLD GUARD is a gritty, grounded, action-packed story that shows living forever is harder than it looks.
