Said to be the most successful independent Irish film of all time, 'The Guard' is also an unlikely hit. Think about it. A movie based on the adventures of a local constable on the west coast of Ireland? Seriously...Yet Brendan Gleeson makes his character lurch into life and commands the comedy spotlight. He's joined by Don Cheadle as an FBI agent and they are forced to deal with drug smugglers. Okay, the language is rough and the humour macabre. But it's great crack! Sorry, I mean 'craic'.
