Malibu Rescue 2019
1h 9min | Family | 13 May 2019 (USA)
Aspiring junior lifeguards compete against snobby local kids for bragging rights and the ultimate tower at Malibu Beach, Calif.
Even at just an hour long, Malibu Rescue quickly outstays its welcome by stretching a two-minute premise into an entire movie and aping a whole host of movies that have done the same stuff much better. There’s probably a demographic this kind of thing will appeal to, and I’m certainly not a part of it, but even on those terms Malibu Rescue is a weak and derivative example of the teen movie that doesn’t sink or swim, just childishly blows bubbles in the water.
