Critic Reviews for My Beloved Bodyguard

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (7)

  • This kind of premise has proved serviceable many times in the past, and there's no reason it shouldn't work here. But the film is oddly structured, with jarring shifts between sleepy whimsy and hard-edged violence.

    April 8, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Hong Kong action-comedy auteur Sammo Hung has instead relinquished the controls of his first directorial effort in nearly two decades to a screenplay drenched with cliched mobsters, maudlin melodrama and a plot with red herrings aplenty.

  • There's enough here to entertain, with adjusted expectations at least, and it's always great to see Sammo Hung on screen and behind the camera

    November 1, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's been 19 years since Sammo Hung directed a movie. The Bodyguard isn't terrible by any means, and he's as charming and pleasant as ever on screen, but in his canon, this doesn't stand out, and there little to warrant seeking this out.

    July 3, 2020 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • Although I'm happy to see Sammo Hung directing again, and apparently, he has another project lined up already, I am sorry to say that The Bodyguard was a full-blown disappointment.

    October 30, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This is a classic Hong Kong marriage of weepy melodrama and brutal, bone-crunching action, and there's a touching sweetness and tragedy to the story of the quiet, reclusive old man, a career soldier now abandoned by family and by his very mind.
