Baywatch (2017) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Baywatch is a let down. The trailer, rumoured 21 Jump Street style approach and The Rock made this look like a slam dunk but at near two hours and with a tone that can never decide whether it’s a knock about romp or semi-serious take it’s much less the sum of it’s parts.  Oh and I wont even labour too much on the boat sequence fire CGI (some of the worst CGI I’ve seen in a big screen blockbuster in 20 years). It has it’s moments and the cast try hard but this could have been SO much better.

Best Bit: Mitch meets Mitch

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream
