They really didnt stick the landing.
10 November 2018 | by jzathajeniousSee all my reviews

For the most part Bodyguard has been an entertaining series. Some great intense action set pieces, and some mildly interesting political conspiracies.

The finale is a bloated ridiculously plotted mess however. David is a fairly unlikeable character and Madden is a fairly wooden actor. The "and they lived happily ever after" ending is trite and uninspired. All in all a really disappointing end.
