    Desent and entertaining, although a little annoying, but I liked the coughs that gave the bodyguard.

    <b>Bodyguard from Beijing</b> is a HK remake of Hollywood's <b>The Bodyguard</b> starring <i>Whitney Houston</i> and <i>Kevin Costner</i>. But HK's version is quite different and a whole lot better. The relationship between <i>Jet Li</i> and <i>Christy Chung</i> has more tension and is more believable. And the action is incomparable. The shopping mall scene and especially the end fighting scene are simply too awesome to describe. Must see for any <i>Jet Li</i> fan.

    This film is a version of <i>The Bodyguard</i>, with Jet Li in the Kevin Costner role. The final 20 minutes of the film consist of nonstop martial-arts action - outstanding!
