Never let her out of your sight. Never let your guard down. Never fall in love.
A former Secret Service agent grudgingly takes an assignment to protect a pop idol who's threatened by a crazed fan. At first, the safety-obsessed bodyguard and the self-indulgent diva totally clash. But before long, all that tension sparks fireworks of another sort, and the love-averse tough guy is torn between duty and romance.
θέλω remake με Beyoncé και Nicolas Cage, και με Samuel L. Jackson στον ρόλο του Jay-Z.
plot twist: ο φανατικός θαυμαστής που θέλει να την σκοτώσει είναι cyborg.
You'd think this would be right up my alley ('90s-tastic), but the characters are so poorly defined, the structure of the film is so scattered, and the final set-piece is so overwrought. A hot mess. Props for Rachel Marron's totally awesome concert and music video costumes though, which rival DEMOLITION MAN in their creative ingenuity.
So hilariously bad that it becomes an unintentional comedy. I couldn't seem to press stop, there was just so much to enjoy. Eating fruit with a knife never looked more deadly!
This felt more like an advertisement for Whitney Huston's music than an actual film, but hey, so bad it's good.
It was on when I switched on the TV so I watched it. OK?
I am not ashamed.
Directed By: Mick Jackson
Starring: Kevin Costner (Dances With Wolves) and Whitney Houston
I wasn't born when The Bodyguard was first released to the public, but I was drawn to it due to recently listening to some of Whitney's songs from the film. So, I gave it a watch and came to the conclusion that if you need to find a film that describes the cheese and corn-fest that was called the 90's, look no further than The Bodyguard. Staring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, The Bodyguard is a poster boy example of "great idea, poor execution". The premise of a Ex Secret Service agent working to protect a Mega Pop Star from an obsessive psychopath is very intriguing and…
Great soundtrack, tense plot, Costner on top form. This holds up really well still.
When this first came out I watched it so many times I lost count. I loved Kevin Costner and the songs....it must be a good 10+ years now since I last watched and picking up a cheap Blu-Ray copy was transported back there again. It certainly has its faults. I never quite bought the relationship between Houston and Costner, and the plot at a bitter sibling wanting revenge, is rather lame. But I felt it is now a sad look in retrospect to a lady who had an amazing voice and very much like Rachel Marron lost her way. Whitney's best moments in this film are the performance numbers where she really shines, and although producing one of the most hated renditions of a song of all time, it is a great girlie film of its time.
This is just one of THOSE films.
Directed by Mick Jackson this film was written by Lawrence Kasdan and stars Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston. A former Secret Service agent takes a job as a bodyguard for a music and movie superstar.
It took many years to get this film made, originally Steve McQueen was mooted as a potential star, but when it finally came out it was a smash hit at the box office. When it comes to the script the characters are not bad but there are some real problems in the final third when the plot takes a turn towards the unbelievable. When it comes to the relationship between the two central characters which the film hangs on the romance between them does not exactly sparkle either.
2 hours long videoclip
It took me some time to starting like this movie because in the beggining it looked like a stalker and a famous woman.

So 90s it's delish.
