Okay, so I love Charlize Theron. I’ve loved her acting for a really long time. Since “The Astronaut’s Wife” with Johnny Depp, even though I saw her in “Mighty Joe Young” and “The Devil’s Advocate” first, which is why i recognized her in “The Astronaut’s Wife”. I really love how versatile her acting is. Scarlett Johannsen reminds me of her. They both have the acting ability to do any role. And they take the female action hero role and mold it to themselves in a perfect fit. Some women can’t do action heroes at all. Like i totally don’t see Keira Knightly or Jennifer Lawrence as action heroes. They don’t fit. And yes, Jennifer Lawrence was a action hero but it didn’t fit her even though she’s very versatile in acting as well.
So back to the movie, The Old Guard, is actually based on a comic book. But I didn’t know that until I was looking up information on it. It was filmed excellently. The acting was great, the storyline was great and the action was great. The only thing, is that there is a freakin cliffhanger at the end. I won’t say what but, “Theron has expressed her interest in a second film, saying: “Let’s have a little resting period, but just given the fact that all of us really want to do it, I’m sure when it’s the right time, we’ll start the conversation.”
