I can't tell if your really fucking smart, or really fucking stupid.

First time big screen director, John Michael McDonagh debuts with a darkly funny satire, centered around an ignorant cop, Sergeant Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson) and the murder investigation he insists on pursuing. Joining the party is the always talented Don Cheadle, as the quiet yet aggressive FBI Agent, who tags ... read more

Satisfyingly tongue-in-cheek dark comedy

"Listen, something's come up, and I'm not just talking about my cock."

The Guard can probably be described as Lethal Weapon meets Quentin Tarantino by way of In Bruges. However, it does not feel like a derivative motion picture or a slapdash mash-up. Instead, this is a hilarious, well-written and satisfyingly tongue-in-cheek dark comedy which possesses its own unique identity. Writt... read more

This movie is hard to describe: it's like a good western (an ambiguous hero which reveals its virtue in an extreme situation), but with bizarre humor and a dose of surreal.

" All good friendship come over a pint of Guinness and I love that the Irish people has the same black humor as me - at least this film has it. A great film about an unpolitical correct copper with a free spirit and mouth. Superior cast, but Brendan Gleeson is the whole film here. Only, the scenes with the mother (even if Fionnula Flanagan is always a solid presence) drag the pace of the film and is not as good as they could have been. "
