The success of the 1992 film, The bodyguard was phenomenal. The crime based drama’s headline stars include the fantastic singer Whitney Houston and the incomparable actor Kevin Costner. However it is argued whether the film was actually groundbreaking or whether the songs, which Whitney...

ConsHouston's acting was not too impressive

It seems to me that I cannot help but cry buckets whenever I watch The Bodyguard. The legendary soundtrack, the amazingly poignant scenes, coupled with the intense chemistry all served towards making this film one of the greatest love stories in the cinematographic industry. Kevin Costner was...

In the ten years I've been an active moviegoer, I've felt an urge to walk out on less than ten movies. This was one of them. But because I had paid for my ticket, I chose to suffer until the end. And what a waste of time it was. An embarrassingly stupid story about a pop star (Whitney Houston)...

“What a body guard”

published 17/07/2001

ProBrilliant story line and actors

Consnothing

The bodyguard is a movie that I love to watch once in a while, that always makes you feel happier whenever you watch it. It could be mostly for women, as lads would just say that it’s a girly movie that they don’t like to watch even though I bet that lads love them really hehe...

I have recently found out that The Bodyguard is one of my dad's favourite films (yes, my dad). This news prompted me to give it a new viewing having last seen it 10 years ago and I was oddly pleasantly surprised and actually enjoyed it. This is strange given that once reviewing it I realised that...

ConsNo Bodyguard 2 ....sob sob

This is one of my favourite movies of all time. What makes it special? Well, the story is superb and personally I think Kevin Costner is one of the most under rated actors, one that many like to knock. Kevin Costner is the Bodyguard, he values his clients life higher than his own, just as a...

Kevin Costner is one of the best actors around. You may think a movie like this is for people who were born in the 80's, however, i was born in the early 90's, and is possibly one of my favourite films. I love Whitney Houston as a singer, and after watching this i also respected her as an actress. I hope to see her in more films in the future!

Shrek has got to be the funniest film that I have seen. Don't get me wrong I am not a child, far from it but when I went to see the film it had everyone in tears of laughter adults and children alike. A magnificant portrail of a lonely, ugly ogre who lived on his own in the forest until met by...
