The Old Guard (2020)
Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for The Old Guard
Charlize Theron is terrific in this hugely imaginative, bone-snappingly violent action-fantasy.
If sequels are made with the same equal mix of character-based narrative and kick-ass action, then The Old Guard could represent the next franchise to become excited about.
In drawing our attention to who these characters are as opposed to leaning upon the awe-inspiring moves they can pull off, the movie opts to be rich with emotional resonance as opposed to lousy with quips and explosions.
There's an indescribable affection for and among the characters in Prince-Bythewood's films that never feels contrived, and here it imbues even an action-packed tale with very real sincerity.
Prince-Bythewood invests the heroes' solitude... with keen melodramatic pathos, but it's merely a grace note to a sluggishly paced plot, thinly imagined characters, and rote shoot-outs.
