The Guard (2011)

Director: John Michael McDonagh. Cast: Brendan Gleeson, Don Cheadle, Mark Strong, Liam Cunningham. 96 min. Rated R. Ireland. Comedy/Crime.

Irish rural cop Gleeson and FBI agent Cheadle are the oddest of all imaginable odd couples in this police buddy movie set in Ireland, where the entire screenplay is founded on the most hilarious racist prejudices. So the story itself is all in the background. Very reminiscent of how the 2008 In Bruges was structured - and strangely, Gleeson starred in that one too. Even stranger, I smelled possibilities of a sequel at the end.
