Overall good movie but has some weak points
I was fortunate enough to see this movie on pre-release last night and, though I wasn’t expecting to, actually really enjoyed the movie for the most part. The rescues and sea effects were amazing to watch and definitely provided edge of the seat tense moments, probably all the more so knowing that there are guys who do this for a living. The weaker parts of the movie revolve largely around using stereotypical set scenes. I’m not going to spoil the movie but this really follows along the lines of An Officer and a Gentleman and those moments give it a little bit of a cheesy aftertaste.
Like I said over all this movie is pretty good and worth checking out as long as you can get past the clichés.
Respect for the sacrifice vs. respect for the movie-going public
With these kinda films, I’m always torn between two thoughts: I want to judge the film on it’s own merits. But I also want to respect the men and woman (in uniform) the film portrays. It’s like George W. Bush telling me to respect the men and women fighting terror: I don’t agree with his policy, but the men and woman he sends abroad fighting terror deserve and do earn my respect. So my conclusion: the men and women of the Coast Guard deserve a film like this, but the movie-going public deserved a better film.
The Guardian doesn’t separate itself by anything other than a cool movie poster. The script is corny (and borrows heavily from films like An Officer and a Gentleman), the production is pretty bland and the special effect are not that good. And then there is the acting: Costner walks around like he hasn’t been inspired by a role in years and Kutcher… he should stay doing pranks: because the kid CAN NOT ACT.
Overall is this is like many other “homage to the uniform” films (like We Were Soldiers, Ladder 49 etc.): the people portrayed deserve our respect, but we deserve, as paying film fans, a better film.
