Movie Review: The Guardian

My Rating: 4Stars

This evening I saw the movie “The Guardian” at UA Cinema, Time Square, Causeway Bay.

It has been a while since I’ve seen any Kevin Costner movies. I was going to watch “The Upside of Anger” (at IMDB) and “Rumor Has It…” (at IMDB) last years (2005), but never got around to them.

The last movie I saw Costner in was “The Postman” and he was not that good. So I was presently surprise to see Costner’s performance in this movie, but then it may be because I did not have too high of expectation.

The other characters in the movie except Ben Randall’s (Costner’s character) wife (“Sela Ward“) were actors whom we were accustom to staring in comedy movies, so it was a bit hard, for me, to see them in serious roles. Through out the movie I was expecting these other actors to break out in some sort of comedy skid.

Overall, this movie was enjoyable and had good mixture or humor, romance and drama. I was taken by surprise to see Costner carried the movie mostly on his own.

So, if you have time give this one a try, but if there is a choice you can either save this one for next time round or wait for the DVD.
