Critic Reviews of "The Guardian"Salon.comSeptember 29, 2006
Kutcher and Costner have a kind of visual chemistry that's just as elusive as the other kind. And the connection and contrast between them remind us that Hollywood isn't as forgiving of older male actors as we like to think.USA TodaySeptember 29, 2006
Kutcher may soon be ready to anchor a Hollywood sea voyage. But for now, he's still a touch out of his depth.Toronto StarSeptember 29, 2006
The Guardian does the job required: nothing more, nothing less, and nothing fancy.Seattle TimesSeptember 29, 2006
Little about The Guardian will surprise anyone from one scene to the next, though the ride is hardly unpleasant and the story is generous in scope.San Francisco ChronicleSeptember 29, 2006
The Guardian has the feel of a Sunday feature in a newspaper more than a drama.Philadelphia InquirerSeptember 29, 2006
Costner is suitably Costneresque -- that is, low-key, stoic, and capable of a wry turn here or there.ComingSoon.netMarch 22, 2011
There's nothing particularly wrong with it, it's just very tedious. Originality doesn't seem to be important and maybe it doesn't have to be as The Guardian is dealing with something true but what that something is the filmmakers seem to know.ColeSmithey.comApril 25, 2009
"The Guardian" is a pro-military propaganda movie from Hollywood that attempts to mask its agenda behind the life-saving rhetoric of Coast Guard rescue swimmers.Eye for FilmDecember 07, 2007
There is a breadth of quality about the acting, including a fine performance from Sela Ward as Ben's estranged wife - making a lot more of her role than her meagre scripting suggests.Calgary MoviesSeptember 16, 2007
Overly bloated action drama that is predictable and drawn out.UGO Screenwriter's VoiceMarch 24, 2007
Will definitely rescue some moviegoers from the post-summer doldrums, but someone should have told Davis that there's going to be casualities if he leaves audiences in the water that long.The Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)March 15, 2007
The Guardian isn't as boring as Annapolis and SWAT, but it's still a feature-length training montage about kids learning the importance of taking it to the limit.
