Charlize Theron is celebrating after Netflix announced the release of her new film The Old Guard, which has been a huge success for the actress and one of the most popular films of all time. In addition to her stunning performances in the film's opening scene, Therons has also wowed in a number of other big films, including "Daredevil," "Suicide Squad" and "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend."
Directed by Gina Prince
Directed by Gina Prince - Bythewood, "The Old Guard" stars Charlize Theron as an immortal mercenary recruited as a former U.S. Marine named Nile. The group of immortals is led by their former "Suicide Squad" co-star - Star kicking butt - and they are trying to bolster their reputation in this latest outing, recruiting immortal mercenaries for an urgent new mission. In "The Old Guard," which airs Friday, Therons plays the lead role of Nile, a member of the "Old Guard" who has lived through thousands of years of battle.
As "The Old Guard" reveals, immortal mercenary Andy (Charlize Theron) is haunted by an haunting eye that Quynh (played by Veronica Ngo) has returned to her. The desire to deal with the real world is at the heart of the film, in which she is seen as a woman in an action film with a hypercompetent character. You can kill a character because he enjoys it, and that haunts you with haunting eyes.
"The Old Guard" feels like a return to action thrillers
In that sense, "The Old Guard" feels like a return to action thrillers, but there are so few women running the group. Theron's films like "Atomic Blonde" (2017) may have lost style and energy, and we've seen them in a number of action movies in recent years. In a vacuum, a film like this not only keeps the spirit of summer blockbusters alive, it also proves that it's not enough to make an action movie. As the 2020 season approaches, there is no question that Theron will define the next generation of female actors in the film industry and the future of film. The old guard she produced with her husband, director David Fincher ("Avengers: Age of Ultron").
Most online enthusiasts have focused on Nicky and Joe because they're good, but let's not forget that "The Old Guard" is a vehicle of Charlize Theron.
Based on the graphic novel of the same name, which opens on Netflix, "The Old Guard" is the perfect showcase for Theron's skills. There is a group of immortal warriors led by Charlize Theron, and there is nothing wrong with that, except that they are all in the wrong place at the right time.
Charlize Theron plays an immortal mercenary named Andy, who is still alive after dozens of fatal injuries over the years, but somehow always heals. In Netflix's "The Old Guard," Charlize Theron plays a millennial warrior who leads a small group of immortal soldiers down the centuries in their fight against evil. Her full name is Andromache, and she plays Andy as one of the immortal warriors who have lived for thousands of years. She plays the daughter of an immortal woman who is a thousand years old and has fought in every war in history.
The end of the old guard
The end of the old guard makes it look like this could be the start of a new franchise. Theron plays the leader of an immortal group of warriors in the film, and although it's a comic book movie, it also features a recently exiled member of the original group, Andromach's mother, who confronts Quynh - face to face.
It's obvious that Theron's work to make this look as simple as by the behind-the-scenes feature that Netflix has released. She would have had none of it, but she has become an actress and producer who has built two viable franchises and even created an opportunity for herself. It's as if they weren't content to just design a star vehicle, but wanted the film to feel different, even if it's a Charlize Theron movie.
