Fast paced action

The previews made this film out to be a fast paced action movie and it was. This was an "A" ticket action ride. From the opening scene to the ending you will enjoy yourself.

Another reason that I liked the film was from the way that the story was told. It was kind of like a Tarantino film from the way that the story was told from different characters points of view. Each "vantag... read more

The trailers billed Vantage Point as a fast paced action/thriller but what you get is more of a slow burn as each viewpoint brings in additional pieces of the puzzle.

The first few re-tells get a bit repetitive but the once more information is given things start to pick up. Plus there are some great action sequences (the car chase with Dennis Quaid will get your adrenaline pumping)... read more

Intense political actioner

''The beauty of American arrogance is that they cannot imagine a world in which they are not a step ahead.''

At its core, Vantage Point is a hybrid creation: an amalgamation of Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon and the hit television series 24. In fact the film could effortlessly be perceived as a sibling of 24 as it contains intense political drama, terrorism, the President of the United S... read more

" I thought it was a well- made thriller, not something that blows your mind but it`s edgy enough to keep you sitting and waiting for more even though it`s predictable."

movie.watcher posted a review 2 years, 11 months ago

“Taking action movies to a new level, Quaid stars in this suspenseful and complex journey of a presidential abduction and assassination. Follow this story as told from the perspective of seven different strangers and how they are all linked. Can you unravel the mystery before the end is revealed?” read more

sharath posted a review 3 years ago

many loose ends-one truth----stinker

“How do we begin?The President is shot, Secret Service agents chase down a "shooter", unconnected characters intersect in increasingly meaningless ways. Oh and did I mention the GROUNDHOG DAY-esqe time rewind? Audible audience laughter is not what you expect to hear in a thriller. When a film with such a reasonable premise is butchered and ultimately ends up dying an ignoble death, my first question was where was the strong hand of the director? Or the screenwriter? This film stinks of heavy handed hacking after test audience screening. It must hurt to lose control of your film.

I was teased by what appears on paper to be a stellar cast-William Hurt, Dennis Quaid, Sigourney Weaver, Forest Whitaker, Hollywood's favourite LOST boy-Matthew Fox. I can only hint at the angry disappoint” read more

What have I been watching in 2012 (93 movies items)

"4.11. Digiboxi (rewatch - ei aiempaa pisteytystä) Muistelin että tää olis ollut parempi, mut täähän olikin varsin tylsä. Epäkiinnostavat hahmot yhdistettynä vielä epäkiinnostavampaan juoneen, niin lopputulos on selvä. Ei tää sentään kerennyt ärsyttämään kun tää onneksi oli niin lyhyt, joten siitä plussaa."

Worst Movies I saw in Theaters (60 movies items)

"I REALLY hated this movie. I saw this in theaters in 2008 and I wanted my money back. Everything about this film made me angry. The whole Groundhog Day technique of repeating the same day over, and over again got really old fast. It made me say "When something good is going to happen?" since I was starting to get bored watching this movie fast. It's an interesting approach to story telling but it could have been done much better. None of the characters were interesting and dialogue was horrendo"

Movie Diary - July 2012 (15 movies items)

"Even I've expected not much, I've expected more. I was very very uninterested in Vantage Point. When the first two parts were over I thought "Oh I'm looking forward to when it's getting great", but it was getting boring and in my opinion the acting was not good. I didn't watch it to the end."

An average movie

“Honestly, beforehand, I didn't heard much about this flick so I didn't know what to expect but since I was given the DVD, I thought I should give it a try. Basically, if you expect a masterpiece, you will be disappointed but if you expect a decent thriller/action flick, you will probably enjoy it. Basically, it is one of those movies which keeps rewinding the action over and over again, showing it again but from the different point of view. Of course, it is a known gimmick and it is not really original. It has been done before and better than this but I still think that there were many things to enjoy. First of all, there were a pretty good cast (Dennis Quaid, Matthew Fox, Forest Whitaker, Édgar Ramírez, Saïd Taghmaoui, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, William Hurt) and they all gave some” read more

"12.10.2011 Elokuvassa näytetään joku kahdeksan kertaa sama tapahtuma, jossa yritetään murhata Yhdysvaltain presidentti ja tämän jälkeen räjähtää pommi. Joka kerralla sitten pikakelataan takaisin alkuun ja otetaan uuden tyypin näkökulma. Pommiräjähdykselle repeää pahasti, koska se ei tyyliin tapa ketään, vaan kaikki nousee heti maasta joku yksi arpi otsalla. Noin puolessa välissä starttaa juoni kunnolla ja kaikki sitä ennen nähdyt hahmot vedetään siihen jollain tapaa m"
