mrbrown’s #WFH mini movie reviews: The Old Guard was not brilliant but it was a watchable action Netflix thing. Did not make me pui chow nua like 6 Underground.
Took a while to build up. Action was nice. Villain was cookie cutter. I’d like to see more Quynh. Sequel is very likely. Charlize Theron is an action flick goddess. Please show more of her past in the next movie. I also want to see more of her axe.
Middle part of the movie a little too much exposition. It’s so obviously a setup for a franchise and a sequel. It felt more like a tv series pilot than a full-on movie.
I bet the graphic novel was better. The last book of the sequel is out, I think.
Other stuff I’m watching now or soon: Warrior Nun and Apple TV+‘s Greyhound.
Also fun was The Great, on Hulu, about Catherine the Great.
In this time of COVID-19, it seems like the only movie options come from streaming services. I don't know when we will feel safe enough to go back to the cinema.
