Personally, I wasn’t planning on renting the movie until they told me what a great movie it was. I’m a big fan of Kevin Costner and his movies, I actually think he’s one of the best actors out there, still some of his latest movies haven’t been as good as I expected, and always quite long. With that in mind, and the fact that I wasn’t expecting much from a movie about coast guards, I didn’t feel that keen on watching it.
Fortunately, the movie turned out to be a lot better than I expected, and I really enjoyed it. It is long too, but it’s good enough that you don’t really feel the time.
The movie is about two interesting characters: a legendary rescue swimmer and a high school swim champion with a troubled past who enrolls in the U.S. Coast Guard’s “A” School, how the relationship between them develops and how they both learn some hard lessons about loss, love, and self-sacrifice.
My score for this movie is: 7.5/10
