BAYWATCH [ 2017 ], directed by #SethGordon.
Never seen the original series, to be able to compare it, so coming into this movie, I wasn't expecting anything special.
We have a team of life guards at the beach, lead by their all-round great guy Mitch (#DwayneJohnson), sometimes working outside their jurisdiction, going as far as "fighting crime" (it is as funny as it sounds). Once they recruit newcomers, one of which is a down of his luck 2-time Olympic gold medalist Matt Brody (#ZacEfron), they are now facing a new threat in a form of a gorgeous mob lady (beautiful Hindi actress #PriyankaChopra), who's planning on taking over all of the bay.
Mixed with caricature pathos and sometimes silly humor, this, is it comedy or an action movie, you can safely assume thrash, but the thing is, this film is self-aware of itself being stupid, and plays around with it just fine. There is quite a few serious scenes, that this movie's comedic plot is deluted with, so you won't get tired of it being just funny through out and nothing else. Obviously, there is bunch of easter eggs, referring to the series, and I bet every true fan of which may spot with a naked eye.
The cast is actually what makes this movie, surprisingly, enjoyable. You have #TheRock and Efron (who's a freakin' great choice for the role, the guy is extremely talanted), you have some hotness in a form of #AlexandraDaddario (with all her slow motion running scenes, and constant jokes about her tits), a comic relief in a form of #JonBass, and of course, the cameos from #DavidHasselhof and #PamelaAnderson, who were the main stars in the original series. It is immediately noticeable, that all the actors really have fun and have a great time, while making this movie, and it was probably a part-time vacation going side by side with the shooting of the film.
Overall, it's a fun, one-time experrience, which I kinda enjoyed for what it was, even though there ain't nothing special about it.
Try not to compare it to anything, and you'll find this movie watchable. I'll go with a 6/10. It's so much better then I heard. #Baywatch#lifeguard#comedy#action#beach#bay#MattBrody#funny#moviereview#filmreview
Filme muito muito bom! Uma mistura de ação com comédia! O ator Dwayne Johnson mais uma vez atuando muito bem independente do gênero do filme. E acho que vai ter continuação
SINOPSE: Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) é um devoto salva-vidas, orgulhoso do seu trabalho. Enquanto está treinando o novo e exibido recruta Matt Brody (Zac Efron), os dois descobrem uma conspiração criminosa no local que pode ameaçar o futuro da baía.
*running in slow motion to the Baywatch theme and turns to you with a guilty smile* "I REGRET NOTHING!!" Baywatch is the big screen adaptation of the widely popular TV series with David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson being in that show and now the movie has Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as lifeguards who perform over the top duty tasks to keep the beach safe from all types of trouble including a drug bust that threatens the safety of the beach. First off, this is my guilty pleasure that I'm happy to admit I really liked. It's raunchy and stupid but it's aware of it and plays off of it surprisingly well. Speaking of surprises, there's way more penis than boobs here... False advertising you may say. (Haha). Don't worry, it's not as bad as it sounds. Jon Bass was the side character who made me laugh the most and often was the one I could relate to. Some CGI moments are noticeable and unnecessary. Zac and Dwayne did bicker for a little too long but eventually made up for it. No lie, the film is cheesy, bad, ridiculous and predictable but the film knows that and has fun with it.
Baywatch splashes with ☆.
Know what you're getting into rather than expect something so high when it's source material wasn't serious itself. #baywatchmovie#baywatch#dwaynejohnson#zacefron#alexandradaddario#jonbass#kellyrorhbach#ilfeneshhadera#yahyaabdulmateenii#priyankachopra#davidhasselhoff#pamelaanderson#sethgordon#damianshannon#markswift

O ex-atleta olímpico Matt Brody quer se juntar a uma equipa de salva-vidas de elite liderada por Mitch Buchannon. Quando as drogas e o suspeito dono de um resort ameaçam a baía, Mitch e Matt precisam colocar suas diferenças de lado e entrar em ação.
Personnellement, c'est le genre de film que je regarde une fois et c'est tout. Je ne le recommanderais pas vraiment enfin sauf si vous voulez regarder un film et vous vider la tête, sans rien n'attendre en retour.
L'humour est moyen, et le sexisme me gonfle clairement..
Gros zoom sur une paire de seins, de fesses ou même sur des abdos... Une ou deux blagues “douteuses”.. Bon il n'y a pas que ça hein mais voila quoi. C'est tellement flagrant. Et puis l’histoire n’est pas non plus ouf.
Je n'ai rien contre l'humour “douteux” ou autre, mais le truc c'est que lorsque qu'il y en a trop je sature
