Mini Review - The Guard

The Guard (out Aug 25) features one of the most memorable performances of 2011 - Brendan Gleeson as Sergeant Gerry Boyle. He's a policeman from a small Irish town who is helping the FBI to stop a major drug shipment. The accents are tough to follow at times but this is a fantastic black comedy. Sergeant Boyle will keep you on your toes all the way through. Grade: A-.
