From My Vantage Point, Great Movie

Pretty basic premise to the movie. There's an assassination attempt on the President in a public square, and you get to see it from the perspective of several different people like a body guard, tourist, and so on. After a while from one perspective, usually after that character has a revelation that will push the story significantly forward, it flashes back to the beginning with someone else. If you hate repetition , this movie isn't for you. At a certain point, I was ready to get the story moving forward. Fortunately, not long after it did. With every new vantage point, more and more gets revealed until an action packed, revealing ending where almost every question gets answered.
The pacing could be just a bit quicker, and the very end was a bit dumb when a tv station explained the motive of the assassination attempt, fortunately that wasn't the point of the movie.
Setting aside those minor flaws, this was a great movie to watch.
