Summary: 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.
Excerpt: this movie was very intense, i loved how they went over everybodys take.. i saw this on starzhd and the blu blows it away.... very sharp picture, PQ was top notch, the audio was very impressing.. very loud.. this movie was very good i would recommend
Summary: I don't get why this movie was panned. I thought I would be bored to tears because of the way it was described by the critics, but I found it very interesting and entertaining, enough to want to know how it ends.
Excerpt: Great action/suspence/thriller movie about each character's point of view. Good concept although sometimes repetetive. The video and audio quality are top notch, especially the use of the surround elements. Defineatly going to watch this again.
Summary: There are two reasons to watch this movie: the first five minutes and the main car chase. Other than that, nothing. I thought the idea of watching different points of view would be an interesting concept, but it becomes tedious very quickly. This movie is just so completely implausible.
Excerpt: This story didn't tow the line for a number of reasons: -news reporters are allowed to go off on personal tangents?? and get second chances?? -news reporters - supposedly trained to tame emotions - cry seconds after a president is shot?
Excerpt: Movie Itself: Many critics (Includeing one on this site) have underated this well designed & inteligent film for just some crummy action movie. This film is not about the complexity of the plot nor does it intend to be politically contraversial in nature.
Excerpt: Very good, very intense. The movie re-tells the same story from different character's eyes: it's the same 20 minutes being repeated with different twists and perspectives that add more clues to the overall story. This may be a distraction for some people.
