Critics review “The Old Guard,” an action-thriller about immortal mercenaries who must protect themselves when someone discovers their secret; “Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets,” a documentary about a bar in Las Vegas that is shutting down; “Palm Springs,” about two wedding guests who develop a romance as they’re stuck in a time loop.
