[6.25/10] The Old Guard (2020)

The Old Guard (2020)

Quick Review: A ludicrous, prosaic and tonally drab, if violently fun take on superheroes and immortal life, "Old Guard" benefits from Theron's physically tough, but fragile heroine, the strong connection between the characters, the versatile locations, and the outlandishly kick-ass, albeit overly choreographed action, which blends contemporary shootouts and period swordplay, but there is too much melodrama in its lazy plot, the medieval scenes look tacky, and the score is horribly ill-fitting.

It wasn't bad but it wasn't anything I haven't seen before. Ironically, it's one of NetFlix's most watched original movies now.

Exactly, it was very middle-of-the-road for me. Some things worked, others didn't. For me, it had no real climax, and went nowhere, really.
