Storyline

A pop singer has been receiving threatening notes, and her manager hires a bodyguard known for his good work. The bodyguard ruffles the singer's feathers and most of her entourage by tightening security more than they feel is necessary. The bodyguard is haunted by the fact that he was on Reagan's secret service staff but wasn't there to prevent the attack by Hinckley. Eventually the bodyguard and the singer start an affair, and she begins to believe his precautions are necessary when the stalker strikes close to home. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

A Great Romantic Thriller
10 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

I just recently watched The Bodyguard again and i forgot how good it was.

Costner plays the role of the obsessed bodyguard perfectly and Houston's first feature film performance was flawless.

This story of an obsessed stalker terrorising a famous performer and the bodyguard trying to protect her at all costs, was made in a refreshing way, even to compete with todays movie standards

Mick Jackson's The Bodyguard is a great movie to watch over and over again even when you find out whodunnit .
