This movie was pretty decent, its a action comedy movie which was written by Damian Shannan and Mark Swift and directed by Seth Gordon. The movie was from the television series that most of us used to watch. The movie was filmed in Savannah,GA and in some part of Florida. Baywatch received a world wide profit of about $177.4 million from its $69 million dollar budget. The movie has some decent stars in it from dwayne johnson as Mitch, Zac Efron as Matt Brody, Kelly Rohrback who played C.J. Parker. and Priyanka Chopra who played as Victoria Leeds just to name a few. while to me the movie was ok, and it did make a good profit ,it did receive major negative feedback from critics.
So in a beach somewhere in Emerald Bay, FL.As an elite division known as Baywatch, A group of lifeguards and their lieutenant Mitch Buchanan protects the bay and beaches. The community loves Mitch, why wouldn’t they, he saved many lives in his career as lifeguard. Near the Huntley Club that is owned now by Victoria Leeds, Mitch makes a discovery, He finds some drugs. Fast Forward. The job is now having tryouts in the search for new lifeguards, And three people seem to be most looked at. Ronnie who is a nerd on the chubby side who is interested in C.J. Then you have Summer Quinn who is a good surfer and Last you have Matt Brody who was a former gold medal Olympian. Brody is not up for passing any trials because he feels that he has a gold medal so he should be places on the team, while Summer Quinn and Ronnie do what they must and pass.
Mitch is trying to convince his captain, Captain Thorpe that Brody is unfit for the job. But Thorpe is focused on not allowing the city to cut Baywatch’s funding and the idea is to rebuild Brody’s image. So with that being said Mitch is now on mission to train Brody. A private yacht is on fire, and now the team must go. During this mission Brody almost goes under while disregarding Mitch’s orders.But C.J. and Holden manages to save Brody. Later in the movie Victoria Leeds has a party. Brody was told by Mitch that he is suppose to go and play look out and see what she is up to and ends up messing up by getting drunk, then gets embarrassed or you can say humiliated in front of everyone by Mitch. The next day Mitch takes Summer Quinn and Brody on a mission with him after Brody begs Mitch for a second chance for messing up his cover the other night at Leeds event.
On the mission Mitch spot Leeds crew trying to cover up something, Mitch and his crew gets spotted. One of Leeds guys get’s caught by Mitch, but later on is let go by Ellerbee because Mitch did not have enough evidence. Now Thorpe who is above Mitch is angry and is telling Mitch that he overstepped his boundaries by trying to investigate Leed’s men. So later Mitch again disobeys Thorpe and takes Brody on another mission with him again, this time to the Huntley where Mitch suspect that Leed’s drug activity is going on at. So Brody and Mitch go undercover again, making a discovery. Thorpe then finds out about Mitch and terminates him from his job and hires someone else. you must watch to see who got the job. Brody gets help hacking into Leed’s system and figures ut a plan she has in stored. Brody later gets captured, Leeds tries to escape but C.J and Ronnie tries to come up with a plan to prevent it, but Mitch comes in basically saves Brody and handles business.
