Action packed female led roles with a good plot. However, trigger warning: there is a pretty disturbing scene where one of the characters is shown locked in an iron coffin drowning over and over again for 500 years. That scene was really hard for me to watch and still stays with me a week later. Although a good movie, that scene alone makes me wish I hadn't watched it.
The Old Gaurd is an entertaining action movie with characters that make an effort to use their gifts to do good. Tha being said the doing good often means killing a lot of "bad" people. The language is sparce but strong. Mature teens 14+ could watch it.
We just watched this movie with my nephew who doesn’t typically watch action but chose it because he enjoys fantasy and the immortality aspect appealed to him.
The movie is violent and there’s a ton of combat/killing but not in a disturbing way. Mostly guards with little personality shown being mowed down in large numbers.
There is a story of the immortal who was locked in an iron cage and left to drown in the ocean over and over for 500 years moved me quite a bit but the boys weren’t as phased!
(Spoiler alert) - she lives making it less disturbing.
The only sexual reference was a male gay kiss that was backed up by some really beautiful scripting about true love. An unexpected bonus that introduced some great LGBT positive messaging.
The immortals hitched a ride in a plane that was trafficking unspecified drugs. No drugs were shown to be used.
It’s a good movie.
