The Guardian," the Coast Guard's "Top Gun" meets "Heartbreak Ridge" meets "An Officer and a Gentleman" meets, well, other movies about the military. The Coast Guard hasn't had a full length feature film dedicated to the Service in a very long while. Er, perhaps forever.
Anyway, it's a great story, although the film runs a little on the long side. For the most part, it was easy for me to suspend my disbelief; they got most of the technical details right-on.
