The Bodyguard

The Bodyguard

Mick Jackson (1992)

15 Certificate


Our Score
In this hugely entertaining slice of escapism, Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston fall in love amid a highly charged atmosphere of jealousy and death threats. Director Mick Jackson created a wildly successful film, much to several critics' snooty chagrin, by teaming two megastars with a daft but jaunty script, a loud rock soundtrack and a few well-staged exciting moments. Costner is a trifle stern, but Houston makes a very creditable acting debut, and the result is great fun.


A famous singer subjected to death threats by an obsessive fan is persuaded to hire a former secret service agent as her bodyguard, but neither of them realise the effect they are about to have on each other's lives. Romantic thriller, starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston.
