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

5.6? Really?
24 July 2019 | by sigfridpius-56186See all my reviews

I can understand a bit why you guys rates it that low. You probably wanted a good plot. When I walked into the theaters I expected 3 things: Muscles, macho and action. It's not about the plot. It doesn't matter with a cliché-plot, because It's all about what I mentioned. Watch this movie again, and focus on those three things. I loves Baywatch because of these things!
