Quick Movie Review – The Guard

The Guard

Sergeant Gerry Boyle: The FBI lad, probably hadn’t had this much fun since they burned all those kids up in Waco.

A comedy as dark as black coffee and very much in the same vein as In Bruges (also starring Brenden Gleason and helmed by the director’s brother).  Funny, though the humor is perhaps too reliant on inappropriate shock jokes and the lead being an ass, and interesting to watch even when the plot seems a bit predictable.

7/10
