The Guard is a comedy-thriller set on the west coast of Ireland. Sergeant Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson) is a small-town cop with a confrontational personality, a subversive sense of humour, a dying mother, a fondness for prostitutes, and absolutely no interest whatsoever in the international cocaine-smuggling ring that has brought FBI agent Wendell Everett (Don Cheadle) to his door. Boyle’s murky moral code is offended by the ensuing circumstances, thus realising that he needs to take matters into his own hands, and the only person he can trust is Everett. And so the scene is set for an explosive finale.
