Trivia

Entertainment information published at the time - such as in an entertainment magazine - stated that Mitzi Kapture, the leading lady for this movie, learned some sign language for the role (obviously). Furthermore, the article notes that Ms Kapture said she didn't want to learn "too much" sign language for the role, seeing that her security-guard character was supposed to know only a little sign language. Of course, one can say that one can learn a lot for later and show just a little for now onscreen - just the much that the project needs. But maybe "that's not being honest with the character," as the actress Kate Winslet stated (in an interview for an unrelated project). And maybe one's intense training will keep slipping out during filming, extending production with needless "take" after needless "take" ("No, dear, you can't keep inventing American Sign Language on camera. Your character's not THAT versatile and, besides, you're kind of making the rest of us on-set feel a little inadequate. Right: 'take' 17!"). In any case, that "overlearning" wariness, so to speak, suggests that Mitzi Kapture has quite a facile mind. See more »

Seen It All Before
8 August 2002 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

A bodyguard is assigned to protect an eyewitness who has seen a murder. Wow what an original plot , the TV bosses must have toiled for seconds to think up that premise , how long they took to come up with the even more radical idea of making the bodyguard a woman and the witness a male deaf mute I will never know and I have to ask how do these producers find enough hours in the day to think up ideas for such groundbreaking films ?

Yes the above paragraph is sarcastic but I had to find some way to entertain myself while watching this formulaic rubbish and I find sarcasm helps while watching a bad film , though to be fair HIS BODYGUARD isn`t really a fundamentally bad film , it`s just one of those movies you`ve seen a hundred times before usually with bigger name actors and a much bigger budget , not that big name stars and massive budgets make these films any better
