Storyline

In sun-kissed Emerald Bay, the vigorous Lieutenant Mitch Buchannon and Baywatch, his elite team of hand-picked and perfectly tanned lifeguards, protect the bay, keeping both sunbathers and beach lovers safe. However, this summer, two new eager trainees will join the demanding life-saving program, as well as an insubordinate former Olympic swimmer, who are all called to prove their worth on the lifeguard towers just on time when a new synthetic street drug begins to infest the Emerald Bay: the flakka. Without a doubt, this calls for some serious undercover teamwork action, as the badgeless heroes in spandex comb the beach for shady newcomers and nefarious entrepreneurs with hidden agendas of their own. Can Mitch's band save the bay? Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

When hiding in the hospital morgue drawers, Mitch states that formaldehyde melts fat and the liquefied fat was dripping on Brody's face. However the bodies in hospital morgues are only refrigerated before autopsies are done, never embalmed, so there would not be any formaldehyde in the tissues. Embalming would only be done later at a funeral home. See more »

It's not a James Bond movie!
29 May 2017 | by lupierz-91616See all my reviews

It's not a James Bond movie, but the drama is real!

Let's be totally honest - the movie is exactly as it's supposed to be. It's light, slightly offensive (to whoever it can) and sends this wink to the audience. Not like Deadpool completely breaking the 4th wall. In a way that keeps with the summer vibe.

Definitely, a summer movie to watch with friends on a hot evening with a glass of Pimms!
