Editors Note
Note Confrontational Irish cop Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson) reluctantly teams with uptight FBI agent Wendell Everett (Don Cheadle) to take down a gang of international drug traffickers in this comedy thriller co-starring Mark Strong, Rory Keenan, and Liam Cunningham.
Box Office 4 stars out of 5 -- "Filmmaker John Michael McDonagh proves his talent for casting with his first feature, the lively, often funny, always thrilling Irish crime comedy THE GUARD." 06/06/2011
Los Angeles Times "THE GUARD is not a breath but a great gust of very funny fresh air....[I]t gives veteran actor Brendan Gleeson one of the tastiest roles of his career and introduces a gifted writer-director..." 07/29/2011
Uncut 4 stars out of 5 -- "A principal joy of THE GUARD lies in its dialogue....Gleeson gives a tremendous performance..." 08/01/2011
New York Times "Popping with glorious, bright color and off-color jokes, THE GUARD is an Irish comedy and almost incidental thriller..." 07/29/2011
A.V. Club "[Gleeson's] performance is equal parts funny and unnerving, and he keeps viewers guessing about what drives the man and what he'll do next." 07/28/2011
Entertainment Weekly "In this offbeat buddy-cop comedy, Don Cheadle, as an FBI agent trying to stop a drug ring, makes the perfect foil." -- Grade: B 08/05/2011
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "Brought to life with gusto, Boyle is equal parts cynic and sentimentalist. It's a great performance and a hell of a character -- profane, contradictory, ineffably alive." 09/01/2011
Sight and Sound "At its best, THE GUARD has a wit and perceptiveness that recalls the comedies of Bill Forsyth..." 09/01/2011
