Brendan Gleeson is terrific in The Guard

The Guard is a terrific movie – echoes of Ken Bruen crime on Ireland’s west coast with a Quentin Tarantino-like soundtrack and homage direction.

Brendan Gleeson is perfectly cast as an irascible, maverick small town cop who operates at the edge of the law but at the heart of humanity.

Violent but involving, it's terribly sad and laugh out loud funny. If you miss it at the cinema, don’t miss it on dvd (or even one of those fancy blue whale thingies).
