Lawrence Kasdan originally wrote his script for The Bodyguard in the late 1960s as a vehicle for Steve McQueen; by the time it reached the screen, Kasdan's star was another movie hearthrob, Kevin Costner. When imperious musical superstar Whitney Houston begins receiving death threats, she is compelled to hire a bodyguard. Enter Costner, who immediately incurs the wrath of Houston and her entourage by imposing prison-like security measures. An ex-Secret Service agent, Costner still hasn't purged himself of his guilt feelings over his inability to protect President Reagan from would-be assassin John Hinckley (in the original concept, the agent had been guarding JFK in Dallas, but Costner was too young to make this credible; besides, he and Oliver Stone had been there before). Gradually, and inevitably, Costner and Houston fall in love. Ralph Waite is cast as Costner's father, while Robert Wuhl and Debbie Reynolds please the crowd in their cameo roles. The Bodyguard was a huge box-office success, helped along in no small part by Whitney Houston's bestselling rendition of the old Dolly Parton hit "I Will Always Love You."~Hal Erickson

Wonderful and dramatic movie to watch. It will truly touch your soul!
I've had the soundtrack to this film forever and love it. I had a gift certificate and decided to buy this movie to see if it was as good as I remembered. It was. Kevin Costner in his heyday was always nice, but I had forgotten how phenomenal Whitney Houston was as a neophyte actress. Well worth the purchase to enjoy it over and over.
I hadnt seen this show in a long time. I kept remembering it was someone else trying to kill her but at one point remembered who put the murder up to it! Its a very good movie all the way to the end. Great singer gone too soon! Kevin Costner was fantastic as always!
I bought this BD just to recall my old memory when I watched this movie almost 30 years ago. And I was a great fan of Whitney Houston and this OST too. Though she was gone, but here she is still alive with the most beautiful appearance and voice.
As it was before, it simply gives me happiness for 1 h 30min while watching the movie.
