“The Guard is little more than a salt-and-pepper cop yarn transposed to the middle of nowhere, Ireland. It has a wickedly smart script that keeps you on your toes, though, and it has from Brendan Gleeson a star performance of cruelly funny mastery. The movie is more pure, profane enjoyment than a body should have in the dog days of August, and when itís over it evaporates, leaving only the acrid smoke of its dialogue and the memory of Gleeson reducing lesser mortals to cinders.

“The chaotic climax is classic Landis, showing the sort of over-the-top mayhem he perfected in The Blues Brothers but used to a more nightmarish effect. It begins as an intimate story between friends and ends will all hell breaking loose in the middle of Piccadilly Circus. And the abrupt ending is the punch line to the movie, a blackly humorous F you to the audience that can only be taken in jest. An American Werewolf in London is perhaps the finest balance to date between comedy and serious horror.” (Bryan Theiss, The Scarecrow Video Movie Guide)
