The Old Guard
Director: Gina Prince-Bythewood
Released: July 2020
A tough lady leading a band of immortal warriors!?!?!? Good times ahead!!!
What a stinker.
I can't place my finger on it but this movie feels hollow. It's a movie made to be a movie with the explicit job of saying 'we made a movie'. It felt like rather than tell a story, there were characters they wanted to say something with. They put those characters in place push the story which comes across as forced. It just makes it hard to care about anyone or anything going on.
Verdict: Pass. Even the action scenes are painful as no baddies can seem to work the trigger on the crazy amount of guns they have.
