Overview

Mick Jackson's The Bodyguard, which spawned the biggest-selling soundtrack album in history, comes to DVD with a standard full-frame 1.33:1 image. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while a French soundtrack is recorded in Dolby Digital Surround. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include production notes. Considering the overwhelming popularity of the music in the film, it is surprising that this disc does not contain at least the videos for those songs. The disc may please fans of the film, but others need not be bothered.

Two great superstars caught in an intriguing plot with lots of suspense and good acting; good to watch.

Costner is quiet and strong, very similar to his role in "The Untouchables"--subtile but tightly-strung masculinity. Houston presents a provocative bouquet of the saucy and vulnerable come-hither--supremely desirable--her voice and delivery of the theme song, Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You," beyond breathtaking. Together they are Fourth-of-July fireworks, seen through a glass of Masseto merlot, and heard through the veil of satin sheets. Wandering a tangle of taut suspense, downy-soft passion, and consuming resentment, the latter from several unexpected quarters, "The Bodyguard" is a love story in the grandest Shakespearian mode, substituting permanent separation for death, and leaving the viewer to decide which is worse. Nothing could be more heart-wrenching than that two people, irresistibly drawn to a real love that overcomes immovable obstacles, only to find that, in this case, overcoming does not remove them, and that they cannot pursue their divergent, destined paths together. Still, as anyone who has ever truly loved, beyond mere desire, knows, as Tennyson put it, "it is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all." It is the bitterest sweet imaginable.

With good suspense, I thought the movie was good, not the best but still pretty good. Music also good.
