Hilarious, suspenseful police-buddy comedy between Brendan Gleeson's "unconventional" Connemara police sergeant and Don Cheadle's privileged, straitlaced FBI agent. Witty dialogue and excellent acting, and a character-driven plot driven by very colorful, but never stereotyped, characters, including a Nietzsche-quoting sociopath. Highly recommended.

An interesting, small film from Ireland. It is a crime drama with a comical twist. Brendan Gleeson was exceptional is his role as a small-town cop.

It's an interesting little movie with a peculiar sense of humour. You either get it or you don't. Gleeson and Cheadle have amazing chemistry and a funny little gem worth watching (if you keep an open mind).

Small town british cop film. Might be a good movie but I couldn't watch more than 5 minutes. Looks to be filmed as if in 1992 (or there abouts).

A great movie. Wasn’t expecting too much from it and was pleasantly surprised. Lots of dark humour in this one.

“The guard” has a weak plot and often resorts to stereotypes in order to get some laughs. It is unclear whether it was meant to be a comedy or a police drama/action film. The one thing that is quite evident to me is the wasted talent in this movie.

If you can stomach listening to the "F" word every 5 seconds, then this movie is for you. I wonder if the writers of the script were challenged by the "English" vocabulary. I couldn't get past the expletives, which I know is like background noise & so very common place today but like I said, if you can stomach it & it doesn't grate your nerves like it did mine...then knock yourself out. Don Cheadle has done way better movies than this. I won't even give it 1 star.
