Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

This 1992 crowd pleaser made almost as much money for Whitney Houston as its chart-busting soundtrack. A high-wattage star vehicle as only Hollywood can make, The Bodyguard stars Houston as a pop-music diva (now there's a stretch) and Kevin Costner as the stern bodyguard who is assigned to protect her after the singer receives some nasty death threats. Pop star and bodyguard don't hit it off at first, but they wear down each others' defenses, and before long Houston is baring her tonsils with a rousing rendition of the Dolly Parton chestnut "I Will Always Love You." The film, written by Lawrence Kasden, was originally intended for Steve McQueen, but the script languished for years before Houston took an interest in the project. A proposed sequel would potentially have starred Costner and Princess Diana, until Diana's tragic death precluded that possibility. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Film. Well Worth Seeing 30 Nov 2009
By zx50
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is great. You've got the beautiful Whitney at the start, not being that bothered about hiring anyone, but upon seeing Kostner's character.........BOOM! The love then starts 'infecting her' as time goes by. For anyone that likes a love story, DEFINITELY buy this. The drama and suspense of wondering who the stalker is, is great. It keeps leading you on all the time. Then you've also got the sister of Whitney's character who fancies Kostner's character as well. All in all it's a great film to see. I've tried to give as much information as I could without spoiling it for anyone. Enjoy the film if you buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic but it works 24 Jan 2006
Format:DVD
I love this movie. Kevin Costner gives a winning, convincing performance as the bodyguard of a spoilt, high maintainance 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Gotta Love It!!! 7 Jan 2008
Format:DVD
This film is fantastic.
Seen it a thousand times & I'll watch it a thousand more.
No wonder it was a hit movie: love, action, drama, twists ....... I mean, if you weren't a Kevin Costner fan before, you will be after watching this. He plays the character of Frank Farmer brilliantly. Whitney Houston, I thought did well in the role. The connection between the two characters is made believable just by the eye contact given, especially in the close/intimate scenes. This film is a must have & must see. It is a bit long but it's worth the watch!!!!!
5 stars all round!!

The Bodyguard was a film more famous for it's incredible 30 million+ selling soundtrack rather than the film itself, but after much advertising and publicity `The Bodyguard' became a box office smash hit, the fact that the film had two very well known leads, also dramatically helped the films success.

The plot is about a famous & successful singer, Rachel (Whitney Houston) hiring a very reputable, ex-secret service bodyguard, Frank (Kevin Costner) to guard her because she has received threatening letters, and is being stalked, Frank is sometimes very overprotective but in the end Rachel sees it is for the best, throughout the film their relationship strengthens, until finally a love affair between them is realised.

I think the film in general is great, fantastic leads, Whitney's acting was brilliant, she was brave to take her critics head on when she chose her debut film role as a lead, it could have easily flopped as for many successful singing stars pursuing acting, it has done just that. The film has everything action, romance and even the thriller aspect to it, it's a classic indeed, but you can't deny that without the soundtrack I seriously don't think this film would have done half as well as it has, final verdict, fantastic and a must see.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have For Any Movie Fan !! 14 May 2006
By Stacey
Format:DVD
This really is a must have, it starts with Rachel Marron (Whitney Houston) as a famous singer/actress, unaware she is being stalked and that there was a bomb planted in her dressing room and that someone broke into her house while her son Fletcher slept in the next room, her manager decides to hire a bodyguard frank farmer (kevin Costner) without telling her the real reason, Frank has to act like nothing serious is going on, until she is in a club shooting a video and the crowd gets rowdy, Frank has to go in a rescue her, Rachel then realises she does need him by her side, so Rachel asks Frank out on a "date" because she is afraid to be apart from him, one thing a bodyguard shouldnt do is fall in love with his client but thats exactly what happens here. This ia a movie for men and women because it has lots of action and is a love story,(the oscar scene near the end is brilliant,) it also has a few suprises along the way, with suspect stalkers.

Its one of these films where you want it to be the perfect love story ending but i will let you see that for yourselves.

Costner and Houston are great together in this film, they have got a real chemistry on screen.

10/10

If you have never seen this movie before, you have to buy this its well worth the money, its got a really good soundtrack too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic for the ladies 14 Jun 2012
By KM #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my better half as it's one of her favourite movies and she loves, yes loves Kevin bloody Costner! I'm not bitter like! Grrrr. . .

Anyway, just incase you've been on Mars for the last 20 year's, my god its been twenty years! The Bodyguard stars sadly the late Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner (grrrr). She plays Rachael Marron a diva pop star (herself basically) who receives death threats. Frank Farmer (Costner, grrrr) is drafted in to be her bodyguard and a good one he is too. He has one rule, never get involved with the client. Their frostiness towards each other turns into something much more. . .

This release sees the digital transfer to widescreen for the first time. The look is much more vibrant with better flesh tones and greater clarity throughout.

Audiowise I'd say average via surround sound. Although very well known for its brilliant soundtrack there is a lot of dialogue throughout which does nowt for the ears. Of course the concert scenes do kick in and sound good. Who could ever forget 'I will always love you' the Dolly Parton song made famous by Whitney.

This is a great movie and well worth having on this dvd.

Did you know that originally Diana Ross and Steve McQueen were penned in to star in this movie circa 1975! The script was shelved until Costner found it. Good job he did eh?
