Three sentence movie reviews: The Guard

 In Three Sentence Movie Reviews


I was glad I watched this with Matt because the buzz about this movie was that it was funny, but I only cracked a smile a few times, while Matt laughed many times.*  Regardless, this was an enjoyable film with Mr. Brenden Gleeson pulling in a great performance as a Guard who isn’t really that interested in following the rules. Don Cheadle (who always elevates his material) was also a good straight man.  Overall, a solid film, and really funny, if you are a guy/have a guy sense of humor.

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home with Matt

*I think this would be a boy humor/girl humor difference.

    Huh, it has a pretty good rating on IMDB, although I do find that IMDB gives more favorable ratings to guy movies. I could see Cheadle playing a very good straight man, especially against Gleeson. I’m glad Matt enjoyed it!
