5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, July 18, 2004
This review is from: The Bodyguard (Full Screen Edition) (DVD)
When this movie first came out the critics panned it mercilessly and frankly I just can't understand why. I thought it was fabulous. Kevin Costner plays an ex-Secret Service agent hired to protect a spoiled, difficult to get along with diva receiving death threats. Whitney Houston portrays the spoiled starlet to perfection. The chemistry and interplay between Houston and Costner was electric. The music in the movie was also great.
There are really some key elements that made this movie extremely good. First, I thought the acting was top notch by all involved. The supporting cast really played their characters well, as did the stars. Secondly, the editing was outstanding. The movie and plot move along at a fast pace. There is not a dull moment in the entire movie. And finally, the plot was plausible (for the most part) and the mystery - who is the hit man - slowly reveals itself. Having watched the movie several times, there a several foreshadowings.
Overall I found it a most entertaining movie both as a mystery, a thriller, and love story.

The Bodyguard (Full Screen Edition)

Won't write my own review because I do not think I could top EXACTLY what C. Baker has written.

I agree wholeheartedly with every bit of what he or she describes......enough said, I bought the movie and have watched it at least 5 times and soon will watch it again.

If anyone doesn't see this as a romantic movie (which by the way crosses the color line very tastefully.....she made me nuts to in this movie) they just have no "love bones" in their body....who cares what the critics say? Never have paid much attention to them....I just want a good plot, well portrayed by all the actors and I think this is one of the best I have every seen!!!!!!

Can you tell me if the Full SCreen version has her music video 'I Will Always Love You'?

This particular version does not include a lot of extas. It is an older version, however, and I expect that some newer versions very well may. You'll just have to check the product descriptions to see what it includes.
