In the United States, the film is renamed "The Defender," with an English dub, a new score and some scenes shortened or cut. The dialogue is also slightly simplified to the original with some names altered. Some scenes of violence are cut for reasons unknown, as well as a sub-plot being eliminated from the story entirely. Distributed by Buena Vista Home Entertainment on VHS and non-anamorphic widescreen DVD.
The film is re-released by Dragon Dynasty in the Dragon Dynasty Five Movie Collection, available in both Cantonese and English tracks, but has one scene eliminated. See more »
Bodyguard from Beijing is a HK remake of Hollywood's The Bodyguard starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. But HK's version is quite different and a whole lot better. First of all, the relationship between the two stars of the movie (Jet Li and Christy Chung) has more tension and is more believable. And the action is incomparable. The shopping mall scene and especially the end fighting scene are simply too awesome to describe. You have to see it for yourself. Albeit the fact that there are some melodramatic scenes, this movie is a must for any Jet Li fan or wushu/action fan.
