The Ending Of The Old Guard Explained

If you like action movies and you also like genre stories that dig into one key conceptual hook and its many implications along the way, The Old Guard is a film for you. From how it wraps up to where it might go next, this is the ending of The Old Guard explained.

Here's your warning: spoilers ahead for The Old Guard.

The chief threat of The Old Guard is Merrick, a pharmaceutical tycoon who becomes convinced that Andy and her near-immortal crew are the key to opening up all sorts of pathways to curing disease, slowing the aging process, and perhaps even stopping death. Merrick has vast financial resources, tremendous tenacity, and the help of Copley's research. He also has Booker's help, and with all of that at his back he's very nearly able to capture and incapacitate every single member of the Old Guard.

Of course, by the end of the film Merrick has fallen out of his own skyscraper with an axe in his neck, so he won't be coming after them again any time soon. That said, as Andy notes near the end of the film, it's almost impossible to stay hidden in the modern world they live in. If Merrick was able to track them down and deploy his wealth to very nearly cage them all, who's to say an even wealthier business tycoon somewhere can't do the same, particularly after they learn about what Merrick went through? All it takes is one person with knowledge of the team who's willing to say what they know.

Am I the only one who thinks this would have been a better as a series ?! ... I mean don't get me wrong , the movie was great !! But it's a great plot for a series!!!

Actually Andy realizes she’s not immortal when she sees that she’s still bleeding after the church fight not when booker shots her
RCESMR
RCESMR:
Personally, I think Andy will regain her immortality. She had lost her purpose and was 'quitting', and I think that's WHY her immortality had gone away. At the end, she regained her purpose so I think her power will come back.

That little "love speech" was one of the most touching, loving and caring things ive ever heard anyone say. i wish i could find that type of love he had for his BOYFRIEND!!!!

persona2grata:
I got the impression that the end of their immortality might be tied to their mental state. Although it was just a brief flashback, it kind of seemed like the immortal who died was in a sense 'ready' to die, something that we see Andy approaching as well when she ceases to believe in the value of her time in the world. My suspicion, which is maybe way off, was that she had regained her immortality by the end of the film when she regained her sense of purpose, something she may have even been hinting at when she told Booker to have faith they would see each other again. Of course, this is a total guess but it seems to me like it could fit.

Andie actually realises that she has become mortal after she gets stabbed in the shoulder
in the church-fightscene,and the wound won't heal.there is a whole scene in the movie where she gets stitches from the girl behind the counter.

I don't want Andromache to die so soon when she has so much to show. They could have made this a Netflix series' wouldn't have hurt. Story Need to have some " intense feeling" requirment for audience to feel and get involved with characters when it comes to fiction. I love Joe (s) incurable romantic scene. Too Good

This power would be a curse, the last gift that I ever wanted. Once you know that you’re immortal in real life, in a physical form, most of people will loss a sense of passion to live to the fullest degree in life. It may be fun to watch but definitely not a good supernatural gift. I don’t want to be immortal.
Anthony Clement
Anthony Clement:
They picked heavy hitters to anchor this movie down with the two leads. Movie kept it interesting for a long movie.
Bill Owens
Bill Owens:
I feel like Andi earned her immortality back when she started realizing her positive impact on the world, and she was mortal when she gave up hope

I can't wait for the sequel, It could also be made into to a weekly TV series as long as they don't screw it up. I've heard all my life that the book is better than the movie. It does show exactly how I feel about big pharma, they don't care about human life, just $$$$. All you good little sheeple out there in America, make sure to get your flu shot.

The Old Guard brought back many fond memories of all the SF-action classics that I enjoyed during the 80s and 90s. Charlize Theron is a wonderful action heroine. 👍🏻

Fun Fact : " Immortality" means to live forever with out aging it also means you won't be able to catch any deseases or virus's and die from them.
Fun Fact : "Regeneration" means you can't die from any fatal injuries or serious cuts it also means any limb or organ lost will rapidly grow back.

Surf Seeker71
Surf Seeker71:
Good idea and had potential but The film went downhill half way through, the science guy casted and played wrong, and the immortals seem capable of just walking into any building unchallenged. Too many plot holes, and then after the jump out of the building the streets we’re completely empty and suddenly a hundred passers by show after the immortals leave. Felt like the director left halfway through and gave up.

Love the way they can kill and still give back something into the world by saving others.
If this not shows you to believe in karma nothing else will. will there be a next movie I will hope they make one after this. Will they shine light into how they can live longer by doing good it is like the sword will cut both ways.
I would like to see the next move and yes immortal I would like to be. Everything dies in the end. Not my words but hers.

scott hammill
scott hammill:
There are two ways this could be followed up - either as a second film or a TV series! I think most people would prefer a TV series.
The Old Guard had (for me) a feel of the old movie Highlander. Where the movie Highlander messed up was being followed by a sequel that was poorly thought out then a series that really had bugger all to do with the source material. (I think there might have been a third movie in there - not sure...)
The actors in The Old Guard are relative unknowns (apart from Charlize Theron), so a TV series would work well for their rises to fame! Charlize Theron's character of Andy has lost her immortality, so she could make a few "special appearance" episodes until her character is killed off OR her non-appearance could be explained away as Andy finally succumbing to the wound at the hands of Booker.

Last conclusion is wrong. You're stating a confirmation bias. The statement was about people she saves get a chance to do good… but there are certainly many she saves that haven't done nothing so picking out the ones that benefited humankind doesn't make sense.. It wasn't like a destiny fulfilling itself in my opinion,
