Review of the old guard: action movie without action

The Old Guard has been released on Netflix, directed by Gina-Prince Bythewood and starring Charlize Theron, Kiki Layne and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

A group of immortal mercenaries led by a warrior named Andy has fought to protect the world for centuries. But when the team is recruited to execute an emergency mission and their extraordinary abilities come to light, Andy and Nile, the youngest soldier to join the group, will have to help their comrades eliminate the threat from those seeking to replicate and benefit from its powers at all costs.

The old guard is a blockbuster that Netflix generates for the purpose of visits,

have known how to sell it as a good action movie, but action has very little and good … neither. I can start with the director, whose work is not noticeable, being relegated to something merely anecdotal within the beltto. He presents us with an action movie that really has no action except at the moment of climax and little else, in the rest of the movie the action is conspicuous by its absence. In fact, the ending is based on dialogues that seek to be deep and are banal, full of meaningless words and empty of real meaning. The only thing that could be saved from the nonsense of this film would be the use of violence in the technical section. But they only remain in that. The only thing that could be saved.

The script for The Old Guard is more predictable than a Mediaset comedy,

it has no substance. Want to have dramatic moments bordering on the obvious and embarrassing. In fact, there are moments in the plot that cry out for some gag or comic element to give it another focus, that would have been better than so much melodramatic moment without coming to mind. All that achieves that the structure of the film is lame and disproportionate. The cast is fine, but not Charlize Theron herself can save such a mess. Characters little or nothing evolveIn fact, some of them are throughout the movie with the same expression.

The old guard has a somewhat peculiar soundtrack,

songs that appear suddenly, stuffed with shoehorn, I do not know very well the purpose, but of course it does not succeed. Sometimes there is a soundtrack that fixes everything. Here, apparently, it has not occurred to them. We are before another disappointing tape from Netflix, and a few are already …
