While being quite unoriginal the film definately benefits from the talent of the two main actors, who both do their parts very well.
I'll just say, I wouldn't have watched this if Til Schweiger wasn't in it, and leave it at that.
Horrible acting, silly dialogue and script.
Terrible dialogue. Terrible effects. Terrible plot. Terrible performances. Terrible SFX. Terrible ADR. Mr. Schweiger, I hope you only did this for a paycheck. This is crap. Also, why the heck does everyone have different accens? It seems out of place for a movie spoken in English and taking place in America.
A slick, fast-paced, very cool and exciting action-packed thriller. It's smart, surprisingly funny and wonderfully character driven all the way through and delivers some sharp gun battles and fight scenes. A fun, explosive, and stylish action film with energy to spare. Til Schweiger and Chazz Palminteri are terrific, they have some great moments and show some great depth to their characters. Schweiger has the presence and subtly of a great action hero. An awesome retreat to old-school action movie excitement. It's a great film that has a surprising twist at the end.
Nothing legendary here, but it was a solid action flick that didn't recieve enough attention. The script was direly cheesy, but it had some good lines here and there regarding ethics and redemption. With the exceptions of the starring performers, the acting was pretty bad. All of the villains were just so stereotypical and the actors didn't add any dynamic to the characters. I thought this film would revolve around action scenes like many bad action flicks, but it turned out to be more plot-based. The action scenes themselves were quite standard, but there were a couple events (like that van John randomly hotwires at the cafe). Far too many lucky saves by unseen allies too, that trick was used far too much. The idea that the film was based on was actually pretty good. I thought it was quite unique, it blended Stolkholm Syndrome with some good old double-crossing and it had some pleasant results.
Pointless action movie, uses everything it can for an excuse for violence, car chases and explosions. Unpleasant characters, it's attempt at style comes across as phony. Overstated and it fails to hold your interest.
Yes: this is a low-achieving action thriller that traffics in the usual clichés of assassins and failed body guards. But, within its limits, BODY ARMOUR succeeds. It's practical, workman-like, albeit vague storytelling zips along. Til Schweiger is the anti-hero, a body guard whose client died on his watch. Schweiger plays his role in strangely muted fashion, as if he is feeling his way through the possibilities of a lead role for the first time. Yet Schweiger has an authenticity and gentleness that makes his brand of macho discontent fascinating. Chazz Palminteri and other well-worn character actors ham it up as villains. Oh, it's all in fun and everyone seems to understand this. A trifle. Nothing more, nothing less.
A body guard is hired to protect the guy who shot his former employer. Not really bad, but very forgettable.
it started off well, i mean a republican politician getting shot?! wahey!!! competent action movie but no great acting from anywhere
