Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average There's not much to say about a movie that fails to take the time to develop real characters or provide a few interesting plot points,...

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average If only. Had that happened, we'd know 'The Guardian' is an actual parody, when the hard truth is that despite the good intentions, it's an earnest but mostly dreadful action melodrama with more false endings...

USA Today Full Review
Average The Guardian jumps through the requisite hoops of life in the service, at least as seen through the eyes of Hollywood producers.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 216 moviegoers:OUTSTANDING OPINIONS FROM EVERYONE! It's certainly a good thing that you don't rely on critic reviews because they pretty much all felt "The Guardian" was an average to below average movie. It makes you wonder "how can they be so wrong?"
A MOVIE NOT TO BE MISSED!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Legendary Rescue Swimmer Ben Randall (COSTNER) becomes the sole survivor of a deadly crash at the height of a massive storm. In the wake of the accident, he is sent against his will to teach at "A” School—the elite training program that turns arrogant young recruits into the best and bravest of Rescue Swimmers. Reeling with grief and regret, Ben throws himself into teaching the only way he knows how, turning the entire program upside down with his unconventional, out-of-the-box training methods. But Ben understands exactly what's at stake—he knows that his students will one day have to make tough decisions between who dies and who lives. When he knocks heads with the cocky swimming champ, Jake Fischer (KUTCHER), Ben sees someone with what it takes to be the best of the best—if only he can combine his raw talent with the heart and dedication necessary and avoid the mistakes that Ben himself has made. Heading out on his first treacherous mission to the fierce, turbulent waters of Alaska's Bering Sea, Jake will have to put all that he's learned into action as he discovers just what it means to truly risk everything.
