Critic Reviews of "My Beloved Bodyguard"Clarence Tsui Hollywood ReporterApril 08, 2016
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.Sean Axmaker Seanax.comFebruary 15, 2017
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.Chris Sawin Examiner.comSeptember 11, 2016
This clunky hour and a half is overloaded with melodrama, poor attempts at comedy, and lackluster fight scenes that would get the Nicolas Cage stamp of approval. The Bodyguard is majorly disappointing and Sammo Hung should be ashamed of himself.James Marsh South China Morning PostApril 19, 2016
Martial arts fans anticipating Sammo Hung Kam-bo's first directorial effort in close to 20 years will be left sorely disappointed by The Bodyguard.Jake Wilson Sydney Morning HeraldApril 08, 2016
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.Boon Chan The Straits Times (Singapore)April 08, 2016
As an actor, Hung has an affable and stoic presence and he deserves a better movie and not just one in which he wins the fights.
