Very Well Done, Interesting Themes and Predictable Ending
I loved the theme right away– it was intriguing. Ashton Kutcher, going to an elite swimmers section in the Coast Guard, a sad teacher with a traumatic accident in his past, Kutcher himself suffering from recent events, a doubtful swimmer with his last chance, now Kutcher's friend....... The Guardian had a perfect, if slightly predictable plot. Then some wacky animal added drugs and cheesy "I know you did this" conversations until you finally were like 'I can't stop watching even though the movies not amazing'. They sucked you in! And *spoiler alert* when a death happens the movie ends and you feel bad and really selfish that you're sitting on a couch eating popcorn when people are risking their lives. One overly dramatic scene makes you appreciate the military more! The brief bit of romance included is unoriginal (kiss at the end bla bla bla). Another thing is that the movie is really intense, I remember fire and water looking really intimidating, so that you're really absorbed and don't know the main character's name (umm Jonathan?). Have fun! Show it to kids who are like 12 or 13 they might consider recruiting afterward.
