Product Description

Product Description

Kevin Costner plays former CIA agent Frank Farmer, now retired and working as a private bodyguard. He takes on the case of singer Rachel Marron (Whitney Houston), who has received several death threats. Initially reluctant to take on his ideas about security, Rachel gradually begins to warm to Frank, who begins to suspect the pop star's would-be assassin lurks amongst her entourage.

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

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.

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.

Was very upset when I went to my local blockbuster to rent this film to find that they didn't stock it! So decided to give it to my housemate for Xmas and we watched it the other day, such a good film, very 90's clothes and cars and great soundtrack. Love it

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 *]. Yet despite the flaws it's still a good piece of entertainment even though there are holes in the script and it doesn't seem as though it's over 2 hours long. There is some swearing and an unexplicit sex scene which probably caused this to be a 15 rating, but in reality it could have easily been a ***** 12 with minor adjustments. Deserving more than *** it scrapes in with ****.

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?
