After you've seen Netflix's new big-budget action picture, take a couple minutes to vote for the best The Old Guard quotes. The movie features a variety of hard-boiled one liners, courtesy of the main character and her team. Those bits of dialogue fit nicely into a story that offers the kind of intense action audiences love, but also contains some provocative themes related to life and death.

Charlize Theron plays Andy, the leader of an elite squad of mercenaries. They possess a special quality -- each of them has achieved immortality. Collectively, the group has spent hundreds of years protecting the innocent from various threats. Now, a new challenge awaits them. The CEO of a pharmaceutical company, Merrick (Harry Melling), has a plan to capture them and forcibly take their DNA. He does this with the assistance of former CIA agent Copley (Chiwetel Ejiofor). KiKi Layne plays Nile, a young soldier who discovers that she too is immortal and subsequently joins the team.

The Old Guard was directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, whose previous films include Love & Basketball, The Secret Life of Bees, and Beyond the Lights. The screenplay was written by Greg Rucka, based on his graphic novel series. The supporting cast includes Matthias Schoenaerts, Marwan Kenzari, and Luca Marinelli as Andy's colleagues.
