Bodyguard (2018) Review: In this sad world, who can we save


Although the show's ending is bright, it still can't hide the deep sadness emanating from the core of the show.

The hero David once dreamed of becoming a doctor who saved people, but he became a soldier who killed people on the battlefield. He loved his wife and children, but because of PTSD, his family was torn apart. He was miserable and lonely, but he had nowhere to talk.

He saved a Muslim suicide bomber on a train at all risks, but his sympathy and trust in her became the source of his later tragedy. The latter killed his lover with a bomb of her own making, and even nearly killed himself.

He had no doubt that his boss, whom he had followed for many years, had used his loyalty to make him the perfect scapegoat and almost killed him.

He is friendly to the female assistant who was fired, but later she tricked him into being made into an adult bomb.

Instead of treating him tenderly, all those whom he had been kind to took advantage of his goodness and integrity, and used them against him, directly or indirectly, to take his life.

And that's not the worst part. The worst part is that the only person he doubts or even betrays is the only person who truly trusts him, and in the end, that person is murdered for his kindness to others.

Could there be a more tragic life?
