From the first seconds of Netflix’s The Old Guard, we learn one thing about its protagonist: she is tired.
“I’ve been here before,” Andy mutters. Her voice-over accompanies images of her crumpled on a concrete floor, an attacker’s flashlight illuminating her bullet-riddled body. “Over and over again, and each time the same question: ‘Is this it? Will this be the one?\’” The screen cuts to black as Andy spits out: “I’m just so tired of it.”
