If you enjoy reading my Spoiler-Free reviews, please follow my blog @ https://www.msbreviews.com Netflix isn't exactly known for its original action films, and when these occasionally appear, most tend to be more comedic than focusing on the action itself (Spenser Confidential, 6 Underground). However, 2020 seems to be the year chosen by Netflix to surprise its viewers with ruthless, bloody, violent action. A few months ago, Extraction became the studio's best original action flick and one of the better movies ever released from the streaming network.

We all remember "Highlander". It was an instant classic, memorable, heartfelt, romantic, exciting, fantastic soundtrack....... Well "The Old Guard" is its antithesis. Its a brittle tale of justification for globalist Western meddling, social justice, politics of sexuality and more. Once again, the story has been mostly fogotten. It wanders around a bit, has a predictable twist and finally falls out of a window, literally. The action scenes are fine, as is the acting but these are only ingredients and in this case the "mix" is very wrong. I hope and pray this is the first and last of these. That said, it looks like they are gearing up for a second one. I can only imagine what that will be like....... 2/10.
