      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Old Guard is occasionally restricted by genre conventions, but director Gina Prince-Bythewood brings a sophisticated vision to the superhero genre - and some knockout action sequences led by Charlize Theron.

      Audience Member Excellent movie. Really cool to see a select few immortals as outliers to society that are purely just immortal. They don't have any superpowers, they just are. It was a fun mix of historical prejudices weaving into more current events, greed of government, butt kicking, and a dash of mythology! I would looovvve to see the backstory and futurestory continue in a second movie or a spinoff series - they left room for it so get on it producers!!! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/07/24 Full Review Alec C These warriors are not just unstoppable, but they're un-killable! As a group of immortals use their skills to protect humanity, they are lured into a trap by people who want to use their longevity for their own ends. With an impressive cast of characters with a fascinating premise, these unknown heroes manage to leave their mark! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/06/24 Full Review Denise F I enjoyed this movie, loved all the action etc but I was distracted by Charlene Theron's pierced ears - if her body kept rehealing and expelling bullets etc, how on earth did she keep her earrings in? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/24 Full Review Gina P Interesting premise. Kept my attention. I think the sequel has the possibility of being better. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/24 Full Review Alec B Theron's great talent is being 100% credible regardless of the role, which is exactly what this movie needed to work. Also, its a lot sadder than you'd expect which, given the silly premise, is quite the achievement. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/24 Full Review Pawel P Move for one time. Not bad, but nothing special. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/04/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Soraya Nadia McDonald Andscape Given a team of highly regarded actors in Charlize Theron, Chiwetel Ejiofor and KiKi Layne, Prince-Bythewood delivers both satisfying, high-octane fights and a proper storyline to stitch them together. Jan 20, 2021 Full Review Clarisse Loughrey Independent (UK) None of this would work without someone like Gina Prince-Bythewood behind the lens. Rated: 4/5 Dec 9, 2020 Full Review Robbie Collin Daily Telegraph (UK) It's a film that's rewarding to spend time with, with a substance-over-style approach that's entirely commendable, and all too rare in films of this type. Rated: 3/5 Nov 22, 2020 Full Review Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews As one of the creators of the original comics, Greg Rucka delivers a screenplay packed with intriguing lore, which is well-explored and well-established for (what should be) the first movie in a new franchise. Rated: B- Jul 24, 2023 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage Predictable and at times very, very boring, and the music makes it even more anti-climatic. I don't see a saving grace here. [Full review in Spanish] Feb 1, 2023 Full Review Dallas King Flick Feast On paper it looks like a carbon copy of Highlander but Theron... and a series of entertaining action set pieces that are directed with verve and style by director Gina Prince-Bythewood... prove you can teach The Old Guard new tricks. Rated: 3/5 Nov 12, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
