Atom User Reviews for Baywatch
Baywatch’s comedy (credited to six different writers) is second-rate and its action is even worse, with special effects that rank among the absolute worst I’ve seen in a big summer movie in many years.
Johnson and Efron possess impressive muscles, but the performers have never done as much heavy lifting as they do here. And to their credit, they succeed to some degree.
The film may pretend it’s more sophisticated than the show that spawned it, but its comedic stylings are alarmingly regressive.
