Product Description

Product Description

Bodyguard, The: Special Edition (DVD)

Amazon.ca

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

Are the people from amazon.com NUTS? Since when was this movie considered "essential"? (along with cough cough, Titanic) First off, no doubt the music is great (classic Whitney!) and as Much as I love some Whitney Houston, she can't really act very well. The "chemistry" between Kevin "Robot Man" Costner and Whitney is just awful. The only thing which makes this movie good is the music (A la "glitter") because Whitney is an incredibly talented singer. Other then that, I'd suggest "The Preacher's Wife" instead.

Wow...This movie is the best I've ever seen. It was supposed to go to Diana Ross and some other guy. I'm glad the roll went to Whitney. Diana would not fit this roll. Wow, three lines into the review and I'm already off task. Okay. Why should you give this movie a chance? Because it's amazing. Whitney proves she is a great actress and singer. Her voice makes this movie even better. The songs fit perfectly. And Kevin Costner, this movie alone makes me a fan, and I haven't seen his other work. It leaves you in suspense, as a mysterious stalker is following Rachel Marron (Whitney Houston) step by step, waiting for the time to attempt in killing her. This movie has a dark atmosphere, which is something I love about it. It's not like most love stories. I was very unsure about trying this movie, because I get bored easily, and I'm not a big romance movie fan, but this movie is so different from a typical romance film. It doesn't just focus on the romance, it focuses on Rachel's career, the stalker, Frank's resistance to grow close to his client. That's what makes this movie so special. I'm thrilled Kevin talked Whitney into this film, although it took her over a year to decide, it was worth it. No one could have done the roles better than Kevin and Whitney.

This blockbuster hit stars two of the greatest in Hollywood with her amazing voice and talent and his incredible eyes make a wonderful movie that is a must see. Whitney Houston outshines herself in this amazing role. She plays pop singer Rachel Maroon. When she starts getting threatened by a nasty and obsessive fan. Without knowing her manager hires Frank Farmer a secret service agent the is the best of the best in protection played by Kevin Costner. At first she dislikes the idea of having a bodyguard and having to do what he says. But as they say their is only a thin line between love and hate. They start to fall madly for each other but he knows it is not right to fall for her because he may not perform his job well that is to protect her. After a disturbing incident in Miami she decides to let him make the decisions from now on. While staying in a cabin the killer that is after Rachel kills her sister and almost kills Rachel�s son. Frank is determined to protect her during the night of the Oscars in which he thinks the killer will make a move. �I will always love you�, �I wanna run to you� and �Queen of the night� make this the best soundtrack for a movie ever made in 1992. As I said this is a must see movie.

First off I'd like to mention that even though it lists the remastered soundtrack as one of the special features, it doesn't mean that it is has the actual soundtrack included, it just means the scenes of the movie with music are remastered. This DVD isn't really good as far as special features, but the movie is as good as it was 10 years ago. Whitney is excellent in her film debut, and Kevin is no worse than he usually is. The only big problem with this movie is that Whitney's character, Rachel, curses more than half the time. If you have a child that you don't think is old enough to listen to Whitney Houston saying the F word, I suggest you tape this off TV (it's always on) and watch that copy when with your child, as they always edit the curses out. Other than these things, this movie is excellent, suspenseful, romantic, and gives you insight into the dangerous life of a superstar. If you like these things, or just like Whitney, or, umm, Kevin, you will love this movie, just don't expect "I'm Every Woman" to show up anywhere, it doesn't.

This is a brillient film with 2 great talents coming together to play the main characters. Actor Kevin Costner plays Frank Farmer, The Bodyguard & singer Whitney Housten,plays famous popstar Rachel Marron. She starts being pestered by an obsessive fan who has turned nasty and started sending threatening letters, so Frank farmer is employed to protect her, against her wishes. But she finds herself falling in love with him, & after a lot of nasty incidents is glad that he is there to look after her. Kevin Costner & Whitney Housten both play their parts very well, with great chemistry between them. There are great Whitney songs such as, her no. 1 single "I Will Always Love You" & "I Have Nothing" & "Queen Of The Night" There is also a good supporting cast. Its a film I have seen many times & never get tired of & I`m sure if you buy it you will feel the same. One of the best films of the 90`s.

Kevin Costner stars as a stoic ex-FBI agent who becomes the bodyguard for rock diva/good Mom Whitney Houston. He finds her lifestyle a bit much at first, but thanks to her cute son, he starts to like her (a definite no-no in the bodyguarding business). Someone is trying to kill her and there are very some intense moments as the stalker gets very close. But who hired the killer? That's the real question.

Whitney has a perfect voice and she sings many memorable songs. You'll rock to "Queen of the Night," and could there be a more bittersweet lovesong than "I Will Always Love You"? Their one romantic encounter is much too brief, but the chemistry is palpable. He's icy, she's hot; what a combination. Costner and Whitney are very sexy and also quite vulnerable. Credit goes to the excellent script as well as the stars' talent. This is a real chick flick: it's got romance, action, suspense, music, and a two gorgeous stars.
