Comedy, definitely written for 'The Rock' and Effron.

No spoilers!

It's a comedy, it's funny and has a vague storyline. This movie is basically an amazing homage to both Baywatch series, but appears to have been written for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

I was not expecting much, but actually enjoyed this movie. It looks like it has been written for Dwayne and Effron and they both shine during the film.

This is the first time that I have seen anything in a Zac Effron movie, but has changed my opinion and I actually enjoy his movies now.

I particularly enjoyed the references to the stars previous highlights, being brought forward to a new generation.

The best part of the movie for me may have been the co-stars. It has given us the chance to invest time and emotions into upcoming stars.

Little mitch is a nice touch too.

Sheer disappointment

Really up for this film as I usually love anything with The Rock involved in it and grew up watching Baywatch. So I started watching and was fun for around the first 15 minutes... Until the insane cussing began and use of arrogance that has nothing to do with Baywatch and whilst I normally have a pretty good sense of humour to me after the opening period the humour used in this movie became real repetitive real fast I'd normally be the first to defend a rock movie that was awful but this time for me there is no upside! #verypooratbest

Funny action packed and The Rock - a winner

What's not to like about any movie with Dwayne Johnson in it. Very funny movie and totally tongue in cheek mockery of the Baywatch thing. I loved it.

Fun movie 😄

Good movie, picture quality is very good on bluray, its a bit Corny but so are most family orientated movies 🎥 these days. For the price (2 for £10) or £7 separate it's well worth it. My movie came with a digital download code, but I've not tried it yet, but even without the code it's still worth it 😀 I'll not go into the film as I don't want to spoil it for you 😉 Lots of laughs and a bit of drama 🎭 This was the extended version 😁

Very funny, Dwayne Johnson knocks it out the park.

Got bad reviews, but then you know a movie about pretty girls, dumb fun and big muscles was never going to be well-received by polite middlebrow mainstream critics. This movie is a helluva lot of fun, with no real connection to the TV series, more carry-on lifeguard than life-saving. Dwayne Johnson is effortlessly good as Mitch Bucannon, with that cocky Alpha Male chutzpah. The first half of the movie is laugh-out-loud, with Zac Efron's over-entitled newbie getting setup for joke after joke. Great fun, slow-mo babes, daft plot. How fun movies should be.

Fun film that doesn't take itself too seriously
Verified purchase
This is a very entertaining film that ticks all the blockbuster movie boxes. You've got The Rock rescuing people and looking muscly but kind, you've got Zac Efron proving he can do comedy, you've got goodies and baddies and lots of laugh out loud visual jokes. Then it turns into a sort of Scooby Doo caper with disguises and investigation, peppered with some fabulous cameos. If you're watching with kids, there's lots of effing and jeffing but apart from that you'll be OK.

Great but as Baywatch fan i thought it was missing something. 4/5

Not as good as the original
I was a little disappointed there as i adore the original series, it was really hard replacing the original actors.
Any Baywatch fan will get nostalgia and surely find it not as good as
Nevertheless, this is good & we all were looking forward to a Baywatch remake.
The Rock & Zac Efron were good in it with high acting presence, the girls acting were not as good i found.
Love the cameo of 2 of the main original characters, nice touch 👌

It's not big, it's not clever, but it is hilarious and brilliant!

I love this film. It's kinda dumb, it's got a pretty predictable plot and it's cheesy but if you are looking for a film that will make you laugh out loud on a Saturday night with your friends and family this is the one. It's genuinely hilarious, and I don't know one person who has seen it that doesn't think it isn't.
