“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.

Gleeson's character is delightful. Unpredictable and intellectual, hidden in a rough red neck country bumpkin cop melange. He knows how to pick his roles. Keeps you wondering what he;s gonna say next. I really loved this movie.

It felt like I was watching a cohen brothers film at times with the quirky characters & odd plot. That would be a compliment by the way in this enjoyable film. The Guard is worth a watch. Brendan Gleeson turns in a great performance as the guard, a quirky outspoken, go it alone type who really is a joy of a character to watch. Don Cheadle plays straight man to Gleeson's odd & often off putting small town cop character. The story is somewhat predicatable but that's OK when you enjoy the ride as you likley will do in this gem of a movie.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”
