The Guardian

 

(PG-13) Two and a half stars

Kevin Costner, Ashton Kutcher, Melissa Sagemiller

Slick, cliché-filled crowd-pleaser following the An Officer and a Gentleman template as it celebrates United States Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers. Kutcher is the brash young recruit and Kevin Costner is the world-weary instructor, playing out the rebellious son/disapproving father dynamic as expected. An attempt to get mystical in the last seconds of the film is annoying. 136 minutes. DVD INFO: Includes a commentary track; deleted scenes; an alternate ending (which surely is better than the one they used); a tribute to real-life Coast Guard rescuers; plus a making-of featurette. —EJO
