Netflix Review: The Old Guard
Be warned, don’t expect to see a Charlize Theron tour-de-force. It’s not Mad Max, it’s not Atomic Blonde, it’s Theron with her feet up.
Sadly, it doesn’t get any better than that.
Somehow Netflix has taken a good graphic novel and made it dull. It’s an impressive achievement considering the synopsis. Immortal soldiers struggling to keep their identity secret in the modern era, while big pharma chases. It has so much potential.
The problems come thick and fast, from a laughable villain who looks fresh from a college campus to a predictable double-cross you’ll see a mile off. Yet, the movie’s main issue is that it’s stuck in second-gear.
If you want to watch a Netflix action movie, check out Extraction. It’s ten times better than The Old Guard.
NETFLIX REVIEW: The Old Guard is not horrendous. Yet it plays out like it was made with a check-list rather than passion. It gets a disappointing CHILL rating from SNIPdaily.
CHECK OUT: HBO Max IS better than Netflix.
