Our Score
The bodies hit the beach in this self-aware action comedy that sees devoted lifeguard Dwayne Johnson and his cocky new recruit Zac Efron put aside their differences to uncover a murderous plot. Slow running, swimsuits, melodrama... this feature update of the wildly popular 1990s TV show knows exactly where the strengths, and weaknesses, of its source material lie. It's not the height of sophistication, but then neither was its predecessor, and everything is done with tongue planted firmly in cheek. Johnson and Efron make a winning comedy double act, while Priyanka Chopra gets the tone just right as a dastardly - but fabulous - villain.

Summary

A veteran lifeguard commands a highly trained team that keeps the sun-kissed resort of Emerald Bay safe. As he breaks in some new recruits - including an insubordinate former Olympic swimmer - he has to contend with a dangerous new drug sweeping the beach. Action comedy based on the TV series, starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario and Priyanka Chopra.
