Under the Radar?: “The Guard”

“The Guard” is a dark comedy revolving around an unorthodox Irish police officer, played by Brendan Gleeson. He’s a hard partying man with little respect for the formality of the job, but he still has a strong sense of honor, and great instincts.

When murderous drug traffickers attempt to move $500 million in cocaine through the country, he finds himself paired with an uptight FBI agent from the United States (Don Cheadle). Together they have to track down and stop the gang of criminals before anyone else gets killed.

Including themselves.

The Raven

Once upon a weekend dreary, at the movies, weak and weary,
From the meaningless action of the film I’d seen before
While I waited, quietly seated, in the dark I sat and tweeted,
As if some one actually needed, needed my opinion for.
`Decent Action,’ I tweeted, `Decent action that I’d seen before -
Only this, and nothing more.’

Ah, distinctly I remembered, at Comic-Con I was a member,
In Hall H I was attendant on “The Raven” panel floor.
Eagerly I wished to see it; – vainly I hoped Cusack freed it
From the current trend of sorrow – sorrow for his lost career -
For his once proud, wonderful, but currently offtracked career -
Mentionless here for evermore.

So the brightening of the silver screen brought hope the movie
Thrilled me – filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
Unfortunately now, to sadness of my heart, it hurts reporting
`’Tis some average outing that feels as if you’ve seen before -
Truly some average outing that feels as if you’ve seen before; -
This it is, and nothing more,’

He’s brought to a CIA safe house run by rookie Matt Weston (Ryan Reynolds). When the safe house is breached, Weston is forced to grab Tobin and go on the run.

Let the games begin.
