The Guard (2011)

The Guard tells the tale of an Irish policeman (Brendan Gleeson) who must join forces with a black, American FBI agent (Don Cheadle) to break up an international drug smuggling ring.

Verdict: Frank, funny, smart and shameless, The Guard is a must-see. Gleeson is at his best as the hilarious, unorthodox cop, while Cheadle shines as the fish-out-of-water agent trying to get a handle on the case, as well as his new neighbours in County Galway. It’s highly entertaining and easily the funniest film we’ve seen so far this year.

4/5
