This movie met my expectations. I know this movie was out in 2020 but I couldn’t help but write my review about it. it’s a movie I can watch more than once because of how action packed it was.
Charlize Theron who played Andy was really incredible. The movie was based on a graphic novel. It was about a warrior named Andy who was the leader of a group of four mercenaries who were all immortal. They have all lived for centuries and are devoted to helping people but also wanting stay hidden. They got exposed after taken on an emergency mission. They discovered Nile Freeman (Kiki Layne), a US marine, who was a new immortal. They all foght together to eliminate the threat who wants to reduplicate and make money of their power by any necessary means.
It’s an action-packed drama with lots of violence and blood. It also has a nice concept, and the execution was really good. It is a really diverse movie with women, gay men, and/or people of colour in big heroic positions, which is really exciting. Here are some reactions of people who watched the movie on twitter.
The music was not really good as it did not go with the mood of the movie. Sure, there were some cliché and cringe moments, the move was really good overall.
I found the villain Merrick (Harry Melling) a little cringy. The hand to hand combats and gun fight sequences were really good. The movie needed more character development as only the character Andy was more developed with a deeper background backstory. The others background were a bit forgettable.
The betrayal by Booker ( Matthias Schoenaerts) one of the mercenaries was really good but a bit predictable. Over all, the movie was really good and worth watching. My two hours was not wasted. I am not sure if the part two would be coming out any time soon but I am anticipating it.
I recommend it to anyone who loves action, blood and gun fights. The movie is a must watch. I would rate it 8/10.
