Vantage Point

Release Date: February 22, 2008

Plot Outline: The attempted assassination of the American President is experienced through several different perspectives.

A short 5 minutes into this movie and I was already hooked. I could not take my eyes off the screen.

I loved how each scene was broken up into its very own mystery. Each scene gave us a chance to get to know each character. In the next scene we discover the answer to the mystery, though the characters aren’t informed yet and then we are introduced to a new mystery, bigger and better than the previous. Because each segment focuses on a particular predicament and particular characters, we get the opportunity to know each of the characters in depth. This is when we grow our fond attachment or our strong distaste for them.

Vantage Point really was the whole package. It was shocking, suspenseful, and carried the big mystery as well as the little mysteries well. It also toys with your emotions.

Pay close attention to the details. Everything…every move, every character, every word has a meaning.  Some are obvious while others are very subtle.

I was disappointed that I didn’t get to see this on the big screen with no interruptions. I think it would have made it a million times better.

I highly recommend Vantage Point. See it ASAP. You won’t be disappointed
