PLOT

Group of Four immortal mercenaries trying to hide their identities from the outside world, what happens when it gets exposed while trying to find newbie to their team.

Andy (Charlie Theron - Known for Mad Max 4), an immortal for centuries leads a team of three immortals, Booker (Matthias Schoenaerts), Joe (Marwan Kenzari) and Nicky (Luca Marinelli). Andy spends her time battling for centuries along with her ax against many battalions. She brings complexity expressions in many layers which proves that she was alive for centuries particularly when her safe house was shown where she kept all her weapons and trophies.

The flick plot is very simple, the team is getting a job from a guy called Copley (Chiwetel Ejiofor) for saving kids who got abducted and placed in a remote location. They fell into a trap made by him unknowingly, escaped from thereby revealing their immortal powers. Copley is a king in making his track disappear, is working for a company called Merrick owned by Merrick (Harry Melling - Known for Harry Potter Series (Dursely)) A young CEO who is in a spree of earning from finding medicine for the eternal life. Merrick wants the four immortals for his research, he asked Copley to get them. In the meantime, a newbie immortal Nile has entered into the scene, when she is getting along with the team, A twist happens were two of their people Joe and Nicky got abducted and Andy lost her immortality. What happens next is the remaining part of the story. 

The graphic novel that originated the film, The Old Guard: Force Multiplied, has four issues, so we can expect this movie to have sequels. We can guess a sequel when newbie Nile (Kiki Layne) dreams about Quynh and Andy was speaking about her all the time, the end climax proves that they will be a sequel.

Overall, A neat and clean action-packed movie.

  • The acting of Theron was really elegant, the manifestation itself proven she has maneuvered hard.
  • The airplane fighting scene between Andy and Nile was splendid, the shot was very clear and it was really superb.


  • The background score has overlapped in a few of the action scenes which is disturbing the pleasure of the action scenes.
  • The movie is worth a weekend or Friday night movie, which won't make you down.
