I’ll be honest, I thought this movie was going to suck, but I was pleasantly surprised.
Now that I think about it, knowing the Rock was involved did give me hope in the film’s potential, but I honestly didn’t think it would be as good as it was.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shines as the main character, Mitch, who is the captain of the Baywatch lifeguard team. He’s a confident team leader who is all about his team and keeping the bay safe.
Then you have Zach Efron’s character Matt Brody. He’s a fallen Olympian who’s poor personal life choices lead him to fulfilling community service duties as apart of the Baywatch team. It’s pretty evident that Brody’s character is a spoofs real life Olympic bad boy swimmer, Ryan Lochte, so I’m more than curious to know how Ryan feels about this movie.
Pryanka Chopra plays a pretty convincing villain, and both Baywatch vets David Hasselhoff and Pamala Anderson make cameos.
Baywatch is fulled with laugh out loud moments, action packed scenes filled with explosions and fistfights, and I love the fact they they poke fun at some of the cheesy aspects of the original Baywatch. ‘
All in all this was a really good remake, and it’s definitely a movie I recommend you watch on your Memorial Day Weekend movie outing.
