‘Baywatch’ thrills the audience

“Baywatch” was released last year to theaters on May 25, 2017, and is based on the old TV series of the same name. Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) is the lieutenant-in-charge lifeguard (played by David Hasselhoff in the original series) and he and his elite team of lifeguards (the baywatch) watch over and protect all the people at Emerald Bay.

Matt Brody (Zac Efron) comes to town to become a lifeguard for baywatch after his Olympic swimming career went downhill when he threw up in the pool during the team’s relay, causing them to lose the race. When a drug known as flakka keeps popping up on the bay and is endangering and killing people, the police do nothing about it, so the baywatch sees it as their responsibility to do some undercover work and figure out the source of the drug.

“Baywatch” is a remarkably good and humorous movie that can teach a lot of life lessons like the importance of working as a team and giving people second chances when they mess up. It also shows that if you have passion and drive for something you can accomplish even what seems impossible. I also really liked it because I really like the beach and the ocean, and I think it would be cool to be a lifeguard on the beach like they are and have coworkers as such good friends and support system. I give this movie 5 out of 5 cardinal heads.
