As a suspense film, The Bodyguard delivers a big chill. And as a love story, it erects a grand canyon between its unromantic, reluctant Romeo and its glitzy, but boring Juliet. Full Review
Hartford Courant

Rating: 3/4 -- The movie does contain a love story, but it's the kind of guarded passion that grows between two people who spend a lot of time keeping their priorities straight. Full Review

A jumbled mess, with a few enjoyable moments but little continuity or flow.
Variety
Jul 22, 2008
Rating: 2/4 -- The premise is workable, but the movie is sabotaged by several elements, including the hot-and-cold dialogue, obvious red herrings, and a ludicrous climax centering on an assassination attempt at the Academy Awards ceremony. Full Review

Lawrence Kasdan, it seems, mulled over the first draft of his screenplay twenty years ago; it should have been left to languish in development purgatory. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Two long hours and 10 minutes after this tale begins, Rachel and Frank seem no closer than seatmates on a long bus trip.

Rating: 1.5/5 -- There's no unironic value to this. Full Review
