Baywatch directed by Seth Gordon, stars Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron in the roles of lifeguards who have the responsibility of patrolling a beach in California along with a bunch of female lifeguards. The film is an offshoot of a popular television series of the same name which ran in its original format from 1989 to 1999 before a new format of the show was introduced called Baywatch Hawaii which went on air from 1999 to 2001.

As one expects, Dwayne Johnson plays the tough guy with a heart of gold, it is Zack Efron who is the movie's surprise package. But, by far the movie’s biggest attraction is Indian actress and former Miss World, Priyanka Chopra. Paramount Pictures seems to have big plans for Baywatch and it is highly likely that the movie would pave the way for a full-fledged film franchise. However, a lot depends on how well the movie fares at the box-office.

While Baywatch's plot seems straight out of some wannabe James Bond film with a female supervillain but a quick burst of action and occasional humor make it an entertaining film.
