Hol­ly­wood bring­ing Bay to the big screen

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

IT HAS be­come one of the most iconic tele­vi­sion se­ries ever cre­ated and now Bay­watch is back – with a twist.

The clas­sic 1990s tele­vi­sion show is be­ing brought to the big screen through Hol­ly­wood names Dwayne John­son and Zac Efron.

The ac­tion com­edy fol­lows de­voted life­guard Mitch Buchan­non (John­son), who butts heads with a brash new re­cruit (Efron).

To­gether they un­cover a lo­cal crim­i­nal plot that

threat­ens the future of the Bay.

The most im­pres­sive as­pect of Bay­watch’s transition to the big screen is how faith­ful it feels.

Those con­cerns of a com­plete par­ody in the vein of Starsky & Hutch needn’t fret, as al­though the film has no fear in rib­bing its pre­de­ces­sor, it em­braces the mad­ness and the cheese.

Fea­tur­ing a stel­lar cast, Bay­watch is one of the best pop­corn movies of the year and is not to be missed at Sum­mer­gar­den Cin­e­mas.
