Action drama about a veteran Coast Guard rescue swimmer (Kevin Costner) who, after losing a colleague, temporarily hangs up his fins to teach at a Coast Guard academy, where he locks horns with a cocky recruit (Ashton Kutcher). Despite treading water for most of its first hour that plays like a commercial for the Coast Guard, director Andrew Davis' formulaic film is kept afloat by appealing performances, exciting rescue sequences and an admirable theme about sacrificing one's life for others. Intense scenes of peril, including a harrowing helicopter crash, implied sexual encounters and a tacit approval of casual sex, a brief bar fight, an instance of the f-word, as well as some crude language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
