The Guard (2011) review

A small town Irish policeman Sergeant Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson) is teamed up with and FBI agent to catch a group of criminals attempting to smuggle a large quantity of cocaine and who are also wanted for murder. 
This doesn’t exactly sound like your standard blockbuster comedy and that’s because it’s not. Sgt. Boyles unorthodox approach to law enforcement as well as his interactions with the ‘by the book’ FBI agent (Don Cheadle) make for a dark but humorous approach to the whole situation and successfully presents a fresh take on a crime, comedy style movie.
