The Bodyguard

A retired security officer with dementia befriends a little girl whose father is running from the mob. To save her, his old skills start to kick in.

IMDb

Sometimes Allflicks.net, the service we use to randomly select a movie to watch and review each week, tricks us by picking a movie that isn't really on Netflix. This error always throws us off because we have to mentally prepare each week to watch a really bad movie and then Allflicks pulls this crap and we end up watching an even worse movie without being in the right emotional state. Last week when we got The Bodyguard, we were treated to an action packed trailer that turned out to be from a completely different movie with the same title. The actual movie we had to watch does feature kung fu as well but our hero is an overweight, retired man with bad dementia. He is an immovable brick house when it comes to dishing out justice with his fists and he breaks everyone's arms when he gets his hands on them. His one true weakness is his arthritis in the knees that keeps him from moving towards his enemies. Luckily, the good folks of China happily walk right into his arm-snapping range and our geriatric hero is able to save the world before promptly forgetting where he is. In addition to the mediocre action, you'll get a mediocre heart-warming story, and some mediocre comedy. So, check out The Bodyguard for a mediocre time! After the news, we're rambling about Stephen King: The Dark Tower, The Gunslinger, and The Shining are all up for discussion. Next week, we're watching Adventures in Lalaloopsy Land.
