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: A beautiful take on flashbacks telling this tale . Showing multiple angles and views of the same event with great acting / casting of characters. PQ is absolutely stunning and the AQ (Dolby True HD) while not as good, is up to the task. Recommended
Excerpt: Vantage Point is a very bold type of movie. With that I mean it's because the plot revolves around 5 various points of view and with that five of the same key scene is played back from those characters eyes. Each reveling a different piece of the puzzle.
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.
Excerpt: I'll keep this one short. Heading into the viewing of the movie I had a somewhat different understanding of what the movie was actually going to be about and how the different vantage points were going to be shown.
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: Pretty entertaining movie. I loved the different perspectives we had. I kept finding myself asking, "what did he see?" The picture quality looked great and the audio wasn't bad. I rented and did not check out the extras.
