Critic Reviews for The Bodyguard
Just about everything that can go wrong with this film does, and yet it's compulsively watchable. (So is a train wreck.)
Houston's face, as she loses herself in the melody out there on a quiet porch in the woods, is a reminder of all she gave to this role, and this movie - and why it's always worth rewatching.
if you can overlook the obvious flaws--a bumpy beginning, a villain whose motive is both too obvious and hard to swallow--The Bodyguard has its flashy, shallow pleasures. There's some wit in Kasdan's script, and dread in the Oscar-ceremony climax.
The Bodyguard is an outrageous piece of saccharine kitsch -- or, at least, it might have been had the movie seemed fully awake.
A jumbled mess, with a few enjoyable moments but little continuity or flow.
Audience Reviews for The Bodyguard
A great film. Costner makes an excellent bodyguard and Houston's singing voice just blows you away everytime. The soundtrack is just as good as the film.
Kevin Costner stars as an ex Secret Service, turned Bodyguard who is billed as the best there is. Hired by Rachel Marron, a famous singer (played by Whitney Houston who is surprisingly good) after a series of problems from an obsessed fan. This film sounds like (and at times plays like) a daytime TV movie. However, there is something about the 1990's Kevin Costner that transforms this film into one of the best films of its day. We are made to gasp as Kevin Costner swoops in and save the head strong singer time and time again and look on as the pair inevitably fall for each other. The only downside of this film is the somewhat unexplained jealousy of the older sister and the motives behind the assasination attempts on the famouse Rachel Marron. "The people who hire me, they don't have to be convinced to save their own lives. "
This movie is in my opinion one of the greatest love stories of all time. The soundtrack and Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston make this movie one of my all-time favorite movies! :) Just great :)
