Cool premise, with by-the-numbers execution and a dull ending. I found myself not looking forward to the next view, of the same situation, after the fourth time or so.

The premise was unoriginal, but the method of executing the story was. It was like watching a drugged up Groundhog Day. I had mixed feelings about the flick. It was inventive the way they presented the story, a few scenic shots from various perspective. However, it lacked the proper character development, screenplay lacked depth, an action thriller which lacks thereof and the waste of talented artists like Forest Whitaker, William Hurt and Sigourney Weaver. You really have to sit thru the first scenes in order to fully appreciate the movie. Overall, it was a decent movie that just tries too hard to impress.

This movie is actually pretty good. The acting is very solid as you have a fantastic cast. The overall story moves at a great pace and stays very understandable for the audience. One thing that bothered me was how under used Sigourney Weaver was. She is in the movie for the first maybe ten to fifteen minutes then we never see her again until a 5 second flashback at the end and she is in the background. Overall this is a good movie to check out and I really recommend it.

Potent thriller that defines brainless writing

Directed by: Pete Travis
Starring: Dennis Quaid, Whitaker, Sigourney Weaver, Zoe Saldana.

To be frank, if one forgets loose ends and logic less questions about how, come a naxalite suddenly apply brakes after seeing a small child, when he has killed thousands of people? Well if you forget this scene , then vantage point is thumbs up. For others, who are not satisfied with the scene, you would be thinking over again and again, how did hell break lose? There may be few questions in viewers mind. Is Vantage Point a solid thriller? Does the plot engage ? Does the writing join loose ends ? Well, I am writing this review to answer those questions. Director Pete Travis ( from the television) has taken up his first motion picture. Assisted by his writer, Levy Vantage point sets a sensationa...

"Vantage Point" by Yojimbo

A terrorist plot to assassinate the president of the US of A is witnessed from differing viewpoints in the crowd, unravelling an underlying conspiracy. The central conceit of Vantage Point of portraying the same events from different viewpoints is now a very familiar one (Kurosawa did it over half a century ago) and the first half of the film did feel like being trapped in Groundhog Day, but once it settles down it turns into a fairly servicable action thriller. The above par cast certainly help, although the bad guys may as well have been wearing black stetsons making the "twist" deeply unsurprising when it happens but some extremely well done set pieces, particularly a thrilling car chase very much in the spirit of the Bourne films, make it pretty entertaining. It is unfortunately marre...

Pretty Fun!

Coming into this film, I knew that the first forty-five minutes or so were a series of scenes that go back in time so I was not completely annoyed by it. Don't get me wrong--it did get tiring and the last two rewind in time felt pointless--but as a whole, this picture is not bad at all. The action scenes were exciting and there are more than a handful of scenes that are like puzzle pieces that need to be put together in order to see the bigger picture. Sure, some of the "twists" were predictable but they made sense. It was nice to see Dennis Quaid as one of the president's protectors who has had experience with a prior assassination attempt. He was convincing because he was shaking, paranoid, and sweating the whole time. Although the gravity of the situation is quite dire, there were some...
