The FBI are about to discover that things work a little differently around here.

Two policemen must join forces to take on an international drug- smuggling gang - one, an unorthodox Irish policeman and the other, a straitlaced FBI agent. Sergeant Gerry Boyle is an eccentric small-town cop with a confrontational and crass personality and a subversive sense of humor. A longtime policeman in County Galway, Boyle is a maverick with his own moral code. He has seen enough of the world to know there isn't much to it and has had plenty of time to think about it. When a fellow police officer disappears and Boyle's small town becomes key to a large drug trafficking investigation, he is forced to at least feign interest when dealing with the humorless FBI agent Wendell Everett assigned to the case.

The Guard - Ein Ire sieht schwarz

Sergeant Gerry Boyle ist ein Kleinstadt-Cop in Irland mit einer gewöhnungsbedürftigen Persönlichkeit, einem seltsamen Sinn für Humor, einer sterbenden Mutter und einem Hang zu Prostituierten. Da geht es ihm gewaltig gegen den Strich, dass plötzlich der FBI-Agent Wendell Everett in seine Routine hineinplatzt, um mit ihm gemeinsam gegen einen internationalen Drogenring zu ermitteln.

  • a.k.a. L'Irlandais

Boyle est un flic irlandais, flegmatique et solitaire, amateur de Guinness, de poésie et de prostituées à ses heures perdues. En poste dans un petit village de la côte irlandaise où il ne se passe jamais rien, il passe ses journées à faire respecter la loi... au pub local. Malheureusement pour lui, des trafiquants de drogue ont jeté leur dévolu sur cette région endormie comme base de leurs opérations... Le petit village irlandais va bientôt se retrouver au cœur d’une importante opération anti-drogue menée par le FBI ! Les mauvaises nouvelles n’arrivant jamais seules, Boyle doit se coltiner l’agent Everett, un super agent du FBI déterminé et maniaque dépêché sur place... Certes, les procédures de l'élite du FBI diffèrent de celles du flic bedonnant, peu zélé et "politiquement incorrect"... Mais après tout, la méthode "locale" pourrait bien fournir des résultats inattendus !

Un poliziotto da happy hour

Il sergente Gerry Boyle è un poliziotto di provincia irlandese, con una personalità conflittuale, un senso dell'umorismo sovversivo, una madre morente, una predilezione per le prostitute, e assolutamente nessun interesse nel contrabbando internazionale di cocaina che ha portato l'agente dell'FBI Wendell Everett alla sua porta.
