Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 06/06/2011
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."
Los Angeles Times - 07/29/2011
"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..."
Uncut - 08/01/2011
4 stars out of 5 -- "A principal joy of THE GUARD lies in its dialogue....Gleeson gives a tremendous performance..."
New York Times - 07/29/2011
"Popping with glorious, bright color and off-color jokes, THE GUARD is an Irish comedy and almost incidental thriller..."
A.V. Club - 07/28/2011
"[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."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/05/2011
"In this offbeat buddy-cop comedy, Don Cheadle, as an FBI agent trying to stop a drug ring, makes the perfect foil." -- Grade: B
Total Film - 09/01/2011
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."
Sight and Sound - 09/01/2011
"At its best, THE GUARD has a wit and perceptiveness that recalls the comedies of Bill Forsyth..."

Product Description:
