The Guard or in Spanish El Irlandés

20 Aug

This summer been a season of bad movies. From badly executed super hero movies to __(insert name of favorite Disney movie)___ part 8 or 9, it’s all been a load of shite!

There is a good movie in cinemas though, and it’s called The Guard! It’s one of my top ten funny movies, right up there with Kickass and In Bruges. In fact the writer and director of The Guard, John Michael McDonagh, is the brother of the director of In Bruges, Martin McDonagh.

The hero of The Guard, is a provincial Irish policeman (played by Brendan Gleeson) with a blithe habit of racial stereotyping, a taste for drugs and hookers and a tendency towards honesty. This is Irish humour at it’s darkest and funniest.

If you want to watch a real movie this summer, watch The Guard.

You can watch the movie in English at the Version Original (VO) cinemas: Verdi in Gracia or Renoir on Florida Blanca.

      Somebody told me that was really funny, I haven’t seen it yet. So maybe I was wrong, maybe there is a good film out this season.
