Bodyguard movie review

David Budd.

Focusing on the main character in this movie, which is David Budd, he’s a strong character. He sacrificed everything including his own life for justice; especially when Julia Montague died, apart from the love affair with Julia, David really with or without the help of the police brought the case to an end.

Richard Madden, who is credited with playing the role of David Budd, has also had great success exploring the role of David. Although during the filming of the TV series Bodyguard, he felt physically and mentally exhausted, Richard still worked well. As a result, he has won 3 awards in different events and received many nominations.

Transcendent story

Although there are only 6 episodes, the plot in this series is very well packed; by pointing out the problem of dirty police that often occurs in large countries. The audience will not think much that it is the Police Inspector who is the perpetrator of the murders of Julia Montague.

In addition, the episode at the end of the episode also shocked the audience when Nadia, who is suspected of being a victim of a bomb and weak, is really the culprit! It was Nadia who made the bomb and provided the weapon to make the London Government feel sorry for the terrorist incident.

Succinct

The screenwriter and producer of this film, Jed Mercurio and the director, Thomas Vincent & John Strickland, deserve to agree! Because they were able to make the right plots of land, not suspended and forced to complete in a hurry. So that the audience can follow the story well.

This is why many viewers will be eagerly awaiting the release of the second season of the Bodyguard TV series, for which the plot is reportedly being written and developed. Most likely the second season of this drama will air in mid-2023 or early 2024. Hmmm, that’s quite a long time, isn’t it?

It’s okay. The viewers who are fans of this drama will certainly be eager to wait for the next story. Hopefully Jed Mercurio has another surprising story to make at the core of the next movie! Read on to give this movie 3.9 / 5 points for Bodyguard; For those of you who haven’t seen it, check it out!
