This superhero movie tells the story of Andy (Charlize Theron), a woman who is one of a handful of humans who cannot die – right up until they do. She leads a group of nearly immortal mercenaries, with the ability to heal themselves. They are an unstoppable force and work together to save the world and themselves from it.
Though they are able to heal most would-be fatal wounds, at some point their death arrives. They have managed to keep their existence in secrecy from the world most of their life.
But advances in technology throughout the information age brings a new threat to the continued secrecy of their existence. When the team is recruited to take on an emergency mission, just as they find another immortal has “awakened,” they discover someone is onto their secret. It’s up to Andy and Nile (Layne), the newest soldier to join their ranks, to help the group eliminate the threat of those who seek to replicate and monetize their power by any means necessary.
Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron is ready to deliver badass action in this action thriller. She always does a great job in action roles and she also looks badass in the trailer.
