    Synopsis


    The Bodyguard
    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, Rovi

      Lawrences Kasdan became quite the in-demand writer and director of the early 1980's thanks to a string of hits, which included Empire Strikes Back, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Body Heat, & The Big Chill. However, this is where he started... sort of. The original script for this movie was his very first script, the one that got it all started, and the one that no one actually wanted to make, that is except a relatively unknown Kevin Costner. After almost 15 years both men where at a place where they could call the shots, and this is the movie we have. A film about guarded personalities trying to figure out how to save each other. Huston is a mega-pop-singer with a killer out to get her. Costner is a emotionally restrained bodyguard who's trying to protect her. Somewhere in the middle of all the chaos of her crazy life and his job they find each other's humanity.

      What happens when circumstance brings together two 'super personalities' at the top of their game? Whitney Houston is the super-star celebrity with a huge fan base except... one of them is threatening her life. Kevin Costner is a super-security expert hired to protect her. Both have similar drives to be the best in their field. What starts as a conflict of personalities soon develops into a mutual attraction. Is it love or is it just, to borrow from a famous song '...the nearness of you'? Enjoy the suspense, the love affair, and the resolution of both. Well done film, story, music and two great celebrities in their own right. "The Bodyguard" stars the always believable Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston in her debut dramatic role.

      The Bodyguard came out more near the end Of Kevin’s Costner’s amazing run at the box office (and with critics). It’s hard to realize what a huge impact it had if you weren’t around then. The soundtrack is the highest selling soundtrack of all time, and the film was #2 at the worldwide box office that year. The bluray looks nice, it had a nice, filmic transfer that won’t blow anyone away but certainly looks good enough for such an old catalogue title.

      I have enjoyed the Body Guard since it first hit the movie screen back in the day. I own the dvd already but my son adores this movie too so I ordered this copy for him. Best Buy had a great price of 3.99 and if he damages it that's on him. My copy will stay perfect. This new dvd is in great condition and the movie plays very nicely. R.I.P Ms. Whitney. You were great in this movie.

      I have seen this movie several times and cannot believe how Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston worked so well together. Great script and cast. The sad part is that we have lost Whitney Houston's wonderful voice and character in real life. The movie definitely makes one cry.

      ...saw this movie in the theater several times when it first came out and purchased it recently to watch with my daughter. she enjoyed this movie and agreed that this was a great love story and the music was beautiful. (it's a rare treat when i can share something 'old' with my daughter and have her enjoy it as much as i do--all these many years later! :)

      A classic movie that takes you back to when both Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner were pretty much at their peak. There's a great storyline and romance, lots of suspense and action and some powerful performances by Whitney that may bring you to tears remembering the talent she had.

      I decided to make this purchase because my mother loves classic movies and another site wouldn't let me purchase it unless I made another bigger purchase which I thought was silly. Visited bestbuy.com to see if I would have the same problem and it was not the case!
