Even in a love movie Jet never fails to deliver. Sent from Beijing to protect the fiancee of a businessman, Jet gets straight to work by laying off the entire security staff. The rest of the movie involves him fighting with the fiancee about his hard hand tactics, eventually leading to feelings of love.

The film is Bodyguard From Beijing and not The Defender as Disney has renaimed it.
AVOID ANY DVD FROM DISNEY/DIMENSION THAT DOES NOT HAVE THE ORIGINAL FILM.

...P>This film was originally called The Bodyguard from Beijing. This film has been cut by 2 mins and has a dreadful dubbed audio instead of subtitles. If you buy this movie you are only supporting the likes of Dimension getting their hands on more movies and doing the same again. If only they would be respectful with their releases like Hong Kong Legends and Celestial.
on a further point, this is not even in Jet Li's top 10 movies, it is very weak. ...

This is an action packed Jet Li movie with a hint of romance and suspense. However this is not your regular martial arts flick but it delivers action with lots of gun play and thrills. It has it's hilarious moments too. This is one Jet Li film for your collection.

I'm a martial art fan and was expecting a pure martial arts type of movie. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the versatile talents of Jet Li in this great entertaining movie. A movie with multifaceted action scenes and a touch of soft romance controlled by Li's typical strong sense of responsibilities. Both Jet Li and Christy Chung played their role superbly. It required great acting skills to exhibit both the stoical and annoying characters, and particularly to let the audience feel their strong chemistry for each other without even a physical touch. Jet looks great with his hair and his suit and played the role of a tough, impeccable and honorable bodyguard with a human heart. Christy is beautiful and played a progressing role from an upset woman for being overly protected to a woman in love who turned her back to catch the assasin's bullet to save her bodyguard. The movie is full of nuances that show the dramatic talent of Li as a director. In this movie, Jet Li has proved to the audience that an actor who is being stereotyped as a martial arts master can also excel in other types of movies such as romance and adventure. A great actor shoud be able to perform contrasting characters and out-of-the-ordinary roles. That's what art is all about. Jet Li successfully made the transition from martial arts to drama. He was a five-time Chinese national champion in wushu, a dramatic performance art that mixes martial arts forms with Peking Opera, gymnastics, and acrobatics. If you want to see Jet Li perform different roles other than those in the traditional martial arts movies, you ought to see this one.

Okay, first of all - "The Defender" is a very bad attempt to rename Jet's "Bodyguard From Beijing", directed and choreographed by Corey Yuen - only Hong Kong cinema's best kung-fu choreographer. He is most notable for the scenes he choregraphed in Jet Li's best kung-fu sequences in "New Legend of Shaolin". Corey Yuen (also known as Yuen Kwai) has also directed/choreographed "Warriors of Zu Mountain", "Fong Sai Yuk1&2", "Lethal Weapon 4", "Romeo Must Die", and "My Father Is A Hero."
Jet Li plays a bodyguard from China's top bodyguard-training city, who protects Christy Chung's character - the only remaining witness to a homicide case. This is one of Jet's few Hong Kong films with a modern setting. This is a very awesome kung-fu movie with some suspence, but more kung-fu scenes. Plot and characters are well-developed with mostly unexpected twists.
Directing, camera angles, intricate kung-fu choreography, and wonderful cast only manage to heighten the performance by Jet. Though the kung-fu choreography is not as intricate as in "New Legend of Shaolin", this is definitely a must-see.

This Jet Li movie directed by Corey Yuen (or Yuen Kwei) is the Hong Kong version of Hollywood's The Bodyguard. Jet Li plays a bodyguard from Beijing, who is hired to protect a celebrity & key witness in a murder case. However, he eventually becomes romantically involved with his client. The acting and direction is better than most of Jet Li's other films. However, there is not much action in this movie. Most of the action (especially the good action) comes at the end of the film, in two scenes. There is a shootout in a shopping mall, and then a long finale inside a house. If you don't mind blood & guns, and if you like sped up action, as well as wirework action in realistic movies (like Romeo Must Die) then I guarantee that you will like the action in this movie.
