The Bodyguard Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Bodyguard is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Warner Brothers with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. Revisiting the film now some two decades after its original release, what strikes the viewer more than anything is how surprisingly dark so much of the film is. Large swaths take place in dimly lit interior scenes, where shadow detail is on the murky side and fine detail all but disappears except in extreme close-ups, especially in the many blue-hued moments. This transfer boasts much better saturation than previous home video releases (as should be expected), but it still is hampered by an overall softness that is apparent throughout the film. In the few really brightly lit scenes (such as some of the outdoor footage at Rachel's palatial Hollywood estate), things really pop quite nicely, with appreciably greater fine detail, but even then there's a certain haziness to the image that may bother some expecting digital perfection from a relatively recent catalog title. There doesn't appear to have been any over indulgent grain removal or digital sharpening here, and so the film, while dark and somewhat soft, boasts a suitably cinematic appearance.


The Bodyguard Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Bodyguard's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix is quite impressive on several levels, opening with a literal bang and then proceeding through a rather surprising use of LFE in the first sequence as both gunshots and an explosion catapult across the soundfield. Surround activity here is limited mostly to opening up the musical elements featuring Houston, all of which sound absolutely great in this lossless environment, as well as adding occasional immersion in ambient environmental effects, especially in crowd scenes where a real sense of directionality is achieved with some excellent use of discrete channelization. Fidelity is top notch throughout this rendering, with dialogue and score very well represented. Dynamic range is also surprisingly wide for a film of this type.
