Summary: Vantage Point has an intriguing premise, but the execution is kind of poor. The acting is okay, bit the movie could've been a lot more than it is with a better screenplay, and a better director. After about 30 minutes, the movie loses its freshness, although it picks up a little after the real story is revealed a bit more. It goes from a repetitive thriller flick to a generic action movie (which isn't much better).
Summary: A clever, original yet unique thriller. While the acting is rather average, the film's narrative structure is very clever and the plot has a few well-executed twists, as well as a gripping finale.
Summary: If there’s anything to complain about, besides the script’s occasional dependence on coincidence and unrealistic behavior, it’s that the movie’s vantage point gimmick serves no real purpose. It’s there because the script is too lazy to weave all its characters together into one narrative, and not because they’ve thought of some unique and interesting way to tell this story. It works, but Vantage Point would have worked just as well told traditionally, maybe even better.
Summary: If you ever see this movie at a garage sale as I did, you should buy it. I loved this movie; it's interesting and unique. A very good film with an excellent ending. Entertaining and "riveting". The action's especially top-notch, with a great car chase.
Summary: Interesting, unique way to tell a story with a good cast. The different "Vantage Points" though get kind of annoying around the third time, once all the characters come together things move very smoothly.
Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The concept was good: show different perspectives of the same event. The problem is that it's unrealistic. Not the attempt on the President, but the terrorists plan would never unfold in such a way. First, the traitor secret service member is becoming cliche. Further, the secret service takes regular polygraphs to ensure loyalty.
Summary: An interesting movie, with likable characters and an interesting plot that had me dying to see how it ended, some moments however feel unnecessary, and it does take a little while to get interesting, and the going back in time to see it from another persons point of view and can be a little jarring, and seems unnecessary until you finally see why they are doing it, but it all comes together in the end to create a surprisingly enjoyable movie, but only a certain audience...
Summary: Vantage Point is a difficult movie for me to rate. It has good action, acting, and a good enough premise. However, going back in time 8 times makes the movie feel tedious and the conclusion is not satisfying enough to make the long 2 hours worth the wait. Overall, it isn't a bad movie, but compared to what it could have been, it is weak and unsatisfying.
Summary: After the 5th take of the same scene from a different "Vantage Point" started to become a bit annoyed, but the ending saved it. Vantage point can get a bit annoying with about an hour of the same scene but of different angles, yet if you stick with it, it turns out to be a fast, action packed who done it that should please most people.
