Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson make for a strong team in this action film! Mitch Buchannon (Johnson) is a committed and well-known lifeguard in his town of Emerald Bay, venturing through the beach with his squad to maintain the peace. Looking to add more depth and firepower to his Baywatch group, Mitch holds a tryout session for potential new members.
Enter cocky former Olympics swimming star Matt Brody (Zac Efron). Brody is a younger version of Mitch; buff, skilled, and athletic enough to be a lifeguard. However, the two characters don’t see eye to eye, and Brody is persistent in ignoring Mitch’s commands and doing things his own way.
Amidst the bickering, Brody and Mitch realize they must team up to intercept a large drug operation being potentially run on their sand by a powerful businesswoman named Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra). Differences aside, Brody, Mitch, and the entire Baywatch team up to get to the bottom of this case and save the cherished Emerald Bay beaches from any jeopardy.
This film also stars Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, Jon Bass, and Hannibal Burress. Though not an award-winning piece, this film remains memorable because of the ensemble cast and connection to the popular 90s Baywatch TV series.
