The Guard / by Rollie Agado

When I saw the movie DRIVE last night, I reserved the thought that it would be a long while until I would see a movie that I would enthusiastically recommend others to watch.

The Guard is hands down, the funniest movie I’ve seen in ages.

The film is a ‘buddy cop’ of sorts but it shouldn’t be associated with the shitty buddy cop movies that have recently hit big screens.

The Guard revisits the dark (and highly inappropriate/borderline racist) humor that made movies like - 48 Hours - cinematic milestones that speak volumes about how politically correct we’ve become.

Be warned… the film is set in Ireland and the only American in the movie is Don Cheadle - who plays an FBI agent in search of some drug smugglers.  Be prepared to watch this film with the Closed Caption on if you’re not good with British/Irish accents.
