THE GUARDIAN (Theatrical Release USA 2006)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Guardian—educates, entertains, action-packed, and drama-filled—begins with the question: Is it going to be a good watch, a bad watch, or a horrible watch? It takes a little time to answer that question and then with the transfer to the U.S. Coast Guard training school settles into its ‘cool’ and turns into a good watch. The last 30 to 40 minutes seem to give the movie 2 conclusions, but the additional conclusion brings closure to a great story. Kevin Costner is the perfect choice for this film. Ashton Kutcher seems an odd pick for the movie, but by the concluding scenes turns into the perfect choice for his character, also. Watch for Neil McDonough. The supporting cast perform at a level that makes this movie a ‘sit and watch’ film that, overall, tells a really good story that makes a good addition to the home video library.
