"The Good Things
*Pretty good video quality; possibly better than the first "Bodyguard" DVD.
*Good audio. Includes both English and its original Thai. Also had Spanish subtitles.
*Inclues a 30-minute making-of featurette.
*Filming style is pretty good.
*Includes some very slick, exciting action scenes and some weird zany comedy. Has a couple of cool martial arts fight scenes. Some of the other action scenes are better than the first film.
*Characters are pretty good. Good acting.
The Bad Things
*Not for kids; contains violence, swearing, and nudity.
*Cover art is rather misleading. It looks like a stylish action flick, but is really a comedy.
*It doesn't seem to be as funny as the first film.
The Questionable Things
*Good grief, the main character's wife sure is annoying. Could be good, because it adds to the comedy and conflict. But, I found her annoying.
*Storyline is quite different. The main character spends most of the time trying to become a popular singer (I guess that was his cover or something; I don't recall now). I liked the story in the first film better, which was a more straightforward story about cops, assasins, and criminals.
The Other Things
*Widescreen presentation enhanced for 16:9 TVs.
After the first "Bodyguard," I was ready for more zany comedy and action. This sequel is not as funny as I hoped it would be, but it does have some better (and crazier) action scenes. It's generally entertaining, but would only reccomend it if you've seen the first film."
