Watch Don Cheadle In Trailer For Buddy-Cop Action/Comedy “The Guard”

First trailer for the Irish action/comedy, The Guard, which Don Cheadle co-stars in; it was acquired for domestic (stateside) distribution by Sony Pictures Classics, at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, which is where I saw it.

Thought it was ok. Some laughs; it’s a buddy-cop movie, with Cheadle as the sidekick fish-out-of-water FBI agent. Brendan Gleeson is the other half, essentially playing an Archie Bunker-type, with more smarts and courage than his initially leads on.

Directed by John Michael McDonagh (his feature-film debut) the film stars Gleeson as a local cop who begrudgingly assists an FBI agent (Cheadle) in hunting down members of an international drug smuggling ring whose key members have taken up residence in the small Irish town the film takes place in.

No word on an exact release date yet.
