Plot *** Spoiler Alert***

There are initially four warriors who are namely Andromache aka Andy, Booker, Joe and Nicky. Andy is the oldest of all dating back to old Greece, Booker was a French solider who fought in the Napoleon days, Joe is a Muslim who fought in crusade wars and finally Nicky also ought in same war in opposition side of Joe. The movie starts with a rescue mission of a kidnapped children which was assigned by a CIA agent. At a moment they were ambushed by many troops and at that moment they realize it is a setup. They all die on spot but die to immortality they heal up fast and brought back to life which was recorded by the CIA agent.

At the same time another incident happens in Afghanistan when a young Marine of US army Nile is killed by slitting her throat while on a mission and she was resurrected again without a scratch on her in the army base. Apparently the warriors were telepathically gets to know about her and track her down to rescue her from becoming a lab rat for the eternity of her life.

The movie turns around at a point where a group of scientist searching for them to be tested and find an answer for their immortality and ability to heal faster. The group was betrayed and the movie revolves around the incidents where they were been captured and how they get out of the death trap.

Final Thoughts

Old Guard is an excellent movie regarding the action sequences and the screen play but i think the plot could have been better. Overall I highly recommend you to watch the movie on Netflix.

For me this movie was pretty normal, with the forever excitement provided by the badass figure of Charlize Theron. It's enjoyable because of the fighting sequences, but there are a lot of weak points in the plot, plus being too predictable. Theron kicking bad guys' ass is always delightful to watch no matter how bad a movie is.

3/5

Thanks for posting btw!

I totally agree with you. The movie is enjoyable but predictable at the same time. The plot could have been better.
