  • Critic Reviews
    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."
    Box Office

    "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..."
    Los Angeles Times

    4 stars out of 5 -- "A principal joy of THE GUARD lies in its dialogue....Gleeson gives a tremendous performance..."
    Uncut

    "Popping with glorious, bright color and off-color jokes, THE GUARD is an Irish comedy and almost incidental thriller..."
    New York Times

    "[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."
    A.V. Club

    "In this offbeat buddy-cop comedy, Don Cheadle, as an FBI agent trying to stop a drug ring, makes the perfect foil." -- Grade: B
    Entertainment Weekly

    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."
    Total Film

    "At its best, THE GUARD has a wit and perceptiveness that recalls the comedies of Bill Forsyth..."
