Film of the day: Baywatch


Life’s a beach all over again as the hit 90s TV series gets a big-screen update, with a beefed-to-the-gills Dwayne Johnson stepping into Hasselhoff’s sandals as beloved lifeguard chief Mitch Buchannon.

The forced recruitment of disgraced Olympic swimmer Matt ‘The Vomet Comet’ Brody (an impossibly chiselled Zac Efron) throws a spanner in the works, but Mitch and co must find a way to make it work when drug-pushing villain Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra) enters the scene.

Also donning the famous red swimsuits are Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas, True Detective) and Sports Illustrated regular Kelly Rohrbach, and of course The Hoff pops up for a cameo.

Baywatch – from Friday 9 February on Sky Cinema Premiere and Sky Cinema on demand.
