(2020) (Charlize Theron, Kiki Layne) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Action: A small team of immortal mercenaries must contend with others wanting to take their DNA for various reasons, all while adding a new member to their team.
Andy (CHARLIZE THERON) is the oldest member of a small team of immortal mercenaries who've fought the good fight and then some for centuries and more. While she lost another immortal, Quynh (VAN VERONICA NGO), long ago, she's kept her current team -- comprised of Booker (MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS), Joe (MARWAN KENZARI), and Nicky (LUCA MARINELLI) -- together and under the radar for the past several hundred years. But now they've been contacted by former CIA agent Copley (CHIWETEL EJIOFOR) who hires them to rescue kidnapped children. In reality, however, that's a set-up as Copley is working for big pharma CEO Steven Merrick (HARRY MELLING) who wants Andy and her team captured so that he can profit from selling to the world a new drug based on their extracted DNA.
As Andy sends the rest of the team to avenge that treachery, she sets off to bring recently killed Marine corporal Nile Freeman (KIKI LAYNE) into their fold, having learned that she's immortal like them. The young woman initially wants no part of this shocking and unwelcome development, but Andy informs her that this is her new reality. As Nile tries to adjust, Andy is determined to hunt down Copley and Merrick and make them pay for their actions.
