Good attempt falls short
24 March 2016 | by ashkanxfxSee all my reviews

I'm a fan of HatamiKia and Saw this movie on the first day it came out because the fuzz and buzz was so much beforehand. I was expecting another masterpiece from Hatamikia, something like Glass Agency. Movie started well and was very engaging but suddenly fell down to level of a very normal film and stayed there for the rest of it... Actings were not superb at all even Parastoei who's a phenomenal actor wasn't extraordinary let alone the other actors. The worst part of the movie in my opinion is directing and story, specially the later. Screen play was just oofffff and get you lost (not in a good way). Most of the Dialogues were either too much of a show off or hard to understand or relate to. Simply put the movie was struggling so hard to be a masterpiece but falls short. Due to new story Bodyguard could be entertaining for normal people of the society (who watches movie occasionally) however professionals, semi-professionals and critics would find it boring and kind of weird.
