Plot: Two policemen must join forces to take on an international drug- smuggling gang – one, an unorthodox Irish policeman and the other, a straitlaced FBI agent. Sergeant Gerry Boyle is an eccentric small-town cop with a confrontational and crass personality and a subversive sense of humor. A longtime policeman in County Galway, Boyle is a maverick with his own moral code. He has seen enough of the world to know there isn’t much to it and has had plenty of time to think about it. When a fellow police officer disappears and Boyle’s small town becomes key to a large drug trafficking investigation, he is forced to at least feign interest when dealing with the humorless FBI agent Wendell Everett assigned to the case.

One of the finest surprises this year has brought to me
“The Guard” is definitely a movie to recommend. Its beautiful simplicity, provoking colors and incredibly witty lines simply make this a small masterpiece. I haven’t expected a thing, but it does seem that this directorial surname becomes something to be kept close within the radar.
It has somewhat of that Warhal-like touch to it within the play of multiple strong colors and nuances, where it is visually provoking and satisfying, easy to relate and almost as easy to touch. Along with remarkable scenery and those absolutely sets details, the roles are accordingly brilliant.
Brendan is more than expectedly good and from my point of view, this might just be his best role so far (though all are excellent). The easiness and the flow make the movie a cake one swallows easily. Though grim at all times, it puts a big smile on a face from the first moment.
Unpretentious and fresh, it has a tiny nuance of early ’90 movies such as “Pulp Fiction”, but unlike others, the directing made it look absolutely different. It is unpredictable at all times, yet one keeps waiting for Gleeson’s next line. Probably one of my favorites for some time. Will watch again, definitely.
As for the language, I have to agree with the issue – English is not my native language but it was so awful trying to watch it with those unnatural subs in English. It took half of the fun and I simply turned it off and enjoyed it, understanding it easily. Being so lost in translation, it certainly will not be as great as it really is – even one line lost is too much for such a screenplay.
I’m not an Irish, right. Yet I could identify easily with the characters and feel the ease. As for this year’s movies I’ve seen so far, this was the biggest surprise and biggest satisfaction.
With simple soundtrack which turns out fully unexpected towards the very end – much of a “Mexican standout”, “The Guard” is truly a rewarding movie and a hope that there are still ways to make fresh ones to enjoy without having to compare or predict.
One of the best movies of the last decade
I’ve seen this film three times, and it simply is incredibly complete. Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle are great in both the comedic and dramatic scenes, and especially good playing off each other. It works as a buddy cop movie and as a wry commentary on the genre, all the way until the photographer’s wry meta-commentary signals the merging of the two at the end. Consistently unexpected and original, it captures the Irish penchant for deadpan humor very effectively — and while there are some significant differences in approach, I left the theater with a respect for the director’s craft that I only reliably experience with the Coen brothers.
