    The reviews on this movie by "top critics" fail by a long shot. This movie takes its time and does an amazing job showing one of the most dangerous jobs in the world and what it takes to get the job. Costner and Kutcher do an amazing job and have great chemistry. Definitely a must see that can be watched again and again.

    One second I'm involved and enjoying this and the next I'm rolling my eyes at the bad dialogue. Still Hits on some marks.

    Great movie. Doesn't lack anything as far as stars that know how to act the part. The pair of Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher is great to watch!

    This movie brings a whole new meaning in life about what it means of saving a person who is in life-threatening danger and going beyond your own life to save another life. Kevin Costner did a fine job in his role of being a Cost-Guard rescue diver, instructor and showing the love for his job. Ashton Kutcher did a great job too (not a fan of his) and that says a lot. The creators behind this film made it emotionally for the viewers and that what sparks it. Well put together and just how much the energy and drive this film has. The ending of this film is bittersweet (in a good way) and not minute goes by without thinking about it. Well made movie. Rather may be a soft thriller, drama or action viewer, this movie hits it all.

    My wife saw this movie on a commercial laden channel and wonder why we had never seen it before, so we rented it. By the end, we realized why...it was a horrible movie.

    Interesting critics consensus. I have to say from my perspective this was an excellent film and though lacking truth to the story, felt it was an excellent tribute to the brave men and women that have serve in the Coast Guard. Definitely had some raunchier moments and I would recommend utilizing a filtering service to knock those out. Costner and Kutcher's chemistry is excellent and though I am not a huge fan of either actor, I felt like their performance in this film was spot on. Definitely an inspiring film and worth the watch.
