|The Old Guard
|| United States
The Old Guard is a 2020 Netflix adaptation of the graphic novel by Greg Rucka (author) and Leandro Fernandez (artist). Rucka wrote the screenplay for the film, which was directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood. Charlize Theron stars as Andy, the leader of an unnamed band of immortal warriors. Conceptually, the film combines elements of the popular Highlander franchise with the modern John Wick sensibility, presenting an entertaining take on the fantasy of humans that don't age and can't be killed. In a nod to the characters' extreme age (the main characters are all at least several hundred years old) several of them use quasi-historical weapons as well as contemporary firearms.
The following weapons were used in the film The Old Guard:
The Beretta 92FS pistol (standing in for the Beretta M9) is carried by Marine Corps MPs.
After disarming an MP, Andy points his Beretta at Nile.
Most of Merrick's men use Glock 17 pistols, some of which are confiscated and used by the main characters.

Another guard sweeps his hand with his Glock 17 while shoving Joe.

Heckler & Koch HK45
Booker briefly uses an Heckler & Koch HK45.
Heckler & Koch HK45 - .45 ACP
Booker covers an angle during the raid on Copely. Trigger discipline is consistently poor the entire movie, a consequence of the character's ages. Andy is over twice as old as black powder, while Joe and Nicky fought the Second Crusade and Booker fought for Napoleon. Not only do they predate any concept of firearms safety, gunshots are a mild annoyance to an immortal.
Heckler & Koch USP Compact
Joe (Marwan Kenzari) carries a Heckler & Koch USP Compact with stainless slide as his sidearm. The pistol switches hand several times, and Nile later uses the weapon during the final battle
