Marvelous right from the start till the end. Story is wonderful with the action thrown in by the actors doing an a grade plus performance for the movie making it one of a kind great job. Singing and with a bit of comedy thrown in makes it more heart warming and delightful to watch. A singer hires a bodyguard to protect her from all intruders and dangerous people. Kevin starts modifying her home so he can do his job properly and some problems arise, that at the finish he does not want to take the responsibility and job. She is the problem doing everything her way and walking over everyone. Making it harder to protect her while she is out and causing grief to everybody. Fabulous to watch i rated this an a grade plus for full on action, suspense and thrills by the minute merry-go-round ride at a fast pace entertainment. So what are you waiting for gather up the popcorn retire to the lounge, put your feet up to a fantastic night in with the bodyguard.

The Bodyguard [VHS] 
This is a 1992 american romantic thriller in which bill devaney (bill cobbs), seeks the services of a professional bodyguard to protect rachel marron (whitney houston), a grammy-nominated music superstar from an unknown stalker. Frank farmer (kevin costner) is the reluctant bodyguard drafted in to protect her. Rachel is unaware of the threats and the attempt on her life so views frank as an intrusion, but as the extent of her danger dawns on her, rachel soon sees frank in a different light. Ultimately this film is a vehicle for houston’ own music career and it shows. Costners’ scenes are often quite grainy whilst houston’ are sharper -especially her singing spots and it’s obvious where most of the budget went. It’s very much a pop video collection linked by a flimsy story. The acting is strong -for the most part, but does flounder in places and it’s obvious that houston is more at ease singing than acting. The plot is quite obvious even with a number of twists but they do not really throw you off. The script tends to stroll along but some parts do suddenly jarr as they change direction too quickly. My disc entered the movie straight on insert and i could not access the special features [selected via hitting menu on your remote -lose a *].
Great twist at the end of this story (well, i didn’t see it coming when i first watched it many years ago). Great acting, though i probably love the soundtrack more than the film.
This was bought as a gift for someone else.
When it comes to the bodyguard it’s very hit or miss depending on what you were expecting. In some regards your better off with just the film, only all out fans of kevin costner and/or whitney houston should buy this special dvd version. You may well end up hating the main menu as it plays one of her primary songs while it waits, no background montage or any indication that this is the “special” in title form and it never changes the songif this truly wanted to be special it would add an in-depth booklet covering some film elements and also include an audio cd bonus of whitneys best songs or at the very least give us the ost for the film as an added bonusbuy this for cheap and average reasons or if your a fan, do not buy if you were expecting the complete bodyguard experience.
This is the second time i’ve been forced by my son to watch this average movie, due to the fact he is a big whtiney fan. The score then is a compromise between us – defiinitiely one for the devotees of either houston or costner, but if not you can live without seeing it.
One of whitney’s finest performances. Music, action, acting – all of the highest quality. Prophetic to whitney’s own troubled life.
Saw film years ago and enjoyed it again.
I’m looking forward to seeing this. The beginning and part of the end. I’m going to choose a special night and settle down after a good meal.
Kevin costner gives a winning, convincing performance as the bodyguard of a spoilt singer. Whitney housten is a brilliant co star of this movie making it convincing at all times. The plot is great, the movie moves at a nice pace with never a dull moment and the technicality of seeing what bodyguards are actually trained to do is awesome. Go and buy it, it’s a great way to while away a couple of hours and you’ll find yourself watching it over and over again.
If you want to see kevin costner put in a great performance then look no further than the bodyguard. The main reason being that kevin costner is a truly terrible actor who has only acquitted himself well in perhaps three films. The good news is that this is one of those films. It’s actually so good that i can only imagine that it is on the strength of this movie that he continued to have a career in acting.
This is one of my favourite films (l was lucky to see it live with alexander burke ),she was good (whitney houston better),its about a music/actress receiving death threats, top bodyguard saving her,good chemistry between houston /costner makes for a good film , 2 brilliant songs i have nothing/queen of the nightwhitney houston lookin her best ,even without make up , fit/healthy .
I recently went to see the bodygard show in the west end and enjoyed it so much, i saw the film years ago and the songs are timeless, so i decided to purchase the dvd to enjoy at home. Not sure what is ‘special’ about this dvd but its a good film.
The bodyguard for me is a blend of common music from the considerably skipped whitney and a good plot. It is a movie i have owned in quite a few formats but bluray has offered it additional clarity. Just one that will go on often when you can find absolutely nothing on tv set. Wonderful movie, excellent selling price and fast supply.
I observed the bodyguard just lately dwell on phase and i required the dvd i bear in mind the movie whitney houston at her finest. The dvd only arrived yesterday i was beginning to assume it acquired lost, but i have got it and search ahead to viewing it once again.
Has not genuinely stood the exam of time, or perhaps it was not all that great when it initially came out?.
A genuinely satisfying film at a great selling price.
Now i know she is lifeless it is a lot much more poiniont. . You may well think that’s bizarre but with no television set & no radio for 2 – three a long time.
Great voice and music , sadly an typical film , with implausible script and by the quantities performing.
