Has anybody else seen, or planning to see The Guardian, just out in cinema's now in the UK. I have just seen the film tonight, and I must admit... I loved it!Aston Kutcher was a great actor in it as was everybody else within the cast. I did not realise he was capable of playing such roles.

It is quite a long movie and my bladder pretty much nearly exploded halfway through the movie because I refused to leave in fear of missing something good.

So if you are in doubt as to go and see it..... Go! Because it is certainly a gripping movie.

The ending was unreal, otherwise it wasn't a bad flick.

It was a enjoyable movie. A bit long at just a tad over 2 and a half hours, but nice to see a different military branch as the story line of a movie for once.


I wish UA flew mainline to MYR, that way you wouldn't be stuck in a smelly Saturn for 12 hours.

More of it was supposed to be filmed out of USCG Station Kodiak but the eruption of Mt. Augustine made the producers nervous so they changed the shooting locations.

I'm thinking of seing it, but having worked with a Helicopter search and rescue squadron for nearly a year, I'm afraid the film will be too "Hollywood"...

Nope, I wouldn't consider it Hollywood, however my judgement on movies is crap, however I would recommend seeing it. Just don't forget to go to the toilet right before hand!!!

It was decent. Almost identical to the overall plot of Officer and a Gentleman. Makes you think twice about making fun of the Coasties until you remember that there are only a couple hundred of these rescue swimmers and then it's okay to resume making fun of the Coasties again.  wink   silly

Exactly. Sometimes I think that movies about a certain subject only please every body who doesn't know about this subject, and is an excrutinating experience for those who do.

I like cars, like races and like planes. What do I get:

- The Sylvester Stallone car racing film: he overtakes someone eventhough he has a flat tyre. huh?

- gone in 60 seconds: enjoyed some scenes, but everything about cars, how they were stolen, how they were driven, would make a 5 year old sick.

- Turbulence movies: watch them if you don't know what a plane actually is.

And the list goes on.. There are a few exceptions, but these are like 5%.

Exactly. I once saw the movie where that DiCaprio guy disguises himself as, amongst other things, a pilot. In one scene he is a passenger, looks out the window and says something like "Newark, runway 46. I've landed there a few times...".

The average joe obviously wouldn't spot that mistake, but when stuff like that happens it really can be annoying. Especially if there are many similar tiny details that are just wrong.

As a retired Coastguardsman, I laughed my ass off at the above.  biggrin 

Sadly, the way things are going in the Coast Guard, it won't be too long before the only thing a future commandant will know about the sea is that it is water, and that water is wet.
