Matthias Schoenaerts and Diane Kruger star in DISORDER (in cinemas Friday 25th), a film about a soldier suffering with PTSD who takes a private security job as bodyguard to the young family of an arms dealer. Has Matthias’ Vincent bitten of more than he can chew? To mark the release, we’ve pulled together a list of our favourite ‘bodyguard’ films!
Former presidential bodyguard Frank Farmer (Kevin Costner) is assigned a new role as security for Rachel Marron, (Whitney Houston) a famous pop singer who received death threats. His strict rules leave the singer and her entourage a little upset, until the stalker does something drastic. A romantic affair between Frank and Rachel adds another layer to this thriller.
In this Disney film, Vin Diesel starts as Shane Wolfe, a Navy SEAL assigned to protect the five children of a deceased government scientist. Many enemies of the scientist are on the hunt for his top-secret experiment, which is located in the house his children live in. Although he was put in charge of security, Shane finds himself acting more as a nanny caught up in ever more absurd situations!
Former bodyguard to the president Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) finds himself trapped within the White House while a mastermind terrorist kidnaps the president and essentially takes over the whole building. Until responders can defeat the terrorist, they must rely on Banning and his previous experience to help save the President and protect the nation. This one’s an action-packed rollercoaster.
This recent thriller is based on the true story of the Benghazi attack that took place 11 September, 2012. During the attack on the US compound in Libya, the Ambassador is tragically killed. A Six man team tries to handle the situation the best way they possibly can while the chaos continues around them. The attack has been under the spotlight recently as Hilary Clinton, a democratic presidential hopeful, has been accused of not acting to prevent it.
Denzel was at his arse-kicking finest in Man on Fire, going on a vengeful rampage when a dangerous gang decided to kidnap 9-year-old Lupita, a girl (Dakota Fanning) that he was hired to protect. Set in Mexico City, one of the kidnap capital’s of the world, the Ex-CIA agent tears through hoards of baddies including corrupt officials and criminals to rescue the child. Defo one of the best bodyguard films ever.
We’re looking forward to seeing how Matthias handles his protective duties when DISORDER hits the big silver screen on March 25th!
