There’s something spoiling this movie…
The first thing you will notice about this Hong Kong version of ‘The Bodyguard’ is the incredibly awful dubbing. I’ve seen badly dubbed films before, but never anything quite like this. It’s so bad, in fact, that it almost seems like someone hired voice actors that were nothing like the actor that they were dubbing out of spite. Maybe the director, or Jet Li annoyed the man in charge of voice actor casting, and he thought he’d get his own back. Perhaps the director requested terrible dubbing to give the film a seemingly unintentional comedy element? Whatever the reason; the dubbing in this film is poor. Very poor indeed.

Incredibly awful dubbing aside (and it is awful, make no mistake), the film does feature some nice moments. The story follows that of a young girl who is one of three witnesses to a murder. The other two have been killed in “accidents”, so the girl’s rich boyfriend hires her a bodyguard (complete with terrible dubbing) to protect her. Naturally, the two gradually fall in love as the film progresses. As I said, despite it’s awful dubbing; the film does feature some nice moments. One of which involves an assassin taking out several guards with a bayonet, another of which involves an awfully dubbed kid exchanging his pretend gun with a police officer’s, with hilarious comedy consequences, and naturally for a Jet Li film; there’s Kung Fu, and lots of it.

The film has a rather profound element of comedy entwined within it’s plot. As you know, there’s an unintentional element, which is a result of the undeniably poor dubbing, and there’s also an intentional element, which mostly comes from the little kid and the fat police officer. The cast on display here is nothing to write home about, and they’re all poorly dubbed too. Jet Li takes the lead role, and he does fine (but nowhere near as good as he would do eight years later in the sublime ‘Ying Xiong’).

As I said, the dubbing in this movie is awful. Really, really bad and it does go some way to spoiling the entire thing. It’s so bad that it’s almost farcical, and at times it’s hard to keep a straight face; which does the movie no favours in the credibility department. However, luckily for Jet Li and co; this movie is entertaining enough to just beat the awful dubbing. It’s not a great film, but it is good and I recommend it to anyone that just wants to be entertained for an hour and a half. Or for anyone that wants to see proof of why subtitles are better than dubbing.

An Excellent Movie
Hong Kong movie was hot in the late ’80s, and into the ’90s, and this is one of the movies from that era. The casting is unusual, and so is the plot. Jet Li, wasn’t all that well known at the time, and this was Miss Chinese International 1992 Christy Chung’s first big role ( I actually liked the miss Chinese International 92 runner up more than Christy, and she would have been perfect for this role ).

Jet Li’s star was on the rise starting around the time this movie was made, and he starts getting noticed in the US around this time also. Simon Yam was briefly wooing Christy shortly after this movie was made. Simon of course had many other options as he was one of the most eligible bachelor in Hong Kong.

The movie’s title is almost verbatim fact as Jet was from China, and Christy was from Canada. The unusual mixture of the two culture shows in the mood of these two actors. The plot is also unusual in that an operative from China protects a rich capitalist girl. The movie’s background looks more modern than the present day Hong Kong. Hong Kong seems to have slid backwards in culture since its repatriation. This is evident when you see this movie.

So this is an interesting movie, and the producers at Dimension Film did a really good job of capturing the character of Li, and Chung, and incorporating them into the story. Jet Li is like an unstoppable terminator in this movie, and it correctly highlights his skills, and power.

This is an excellent movie, and is worth a watch if you’re a Hong Kong movie fan.
