I am very happy to watch this movie. The whole blog challenge is for movies like this. I have owned this movie (an impulsive bargain blu-ray one day at Blockbuster) for over year and have yet to watch it. We saw it in theaters and I liked it. So when I saw it at Blockbuster for $5.99 on blu-ray I thought it was worth it to pick up. But I had yet to watch it!
Vantage Point is about an assassination attempt on the President which is told over and over again from 8 different viewpoints (vantage points). Sounds confusing but it isn’t and it really works. The movie stars two of my favorite actors--Dennis Quaid and Matthew Fox (Jack Shepherd baby!)--as two secret service agents who are assigned to the President played by William Hurt (The Village baby!). After the attempted assassination the movie rewinds and starts out from Dennis Quaid's point of view. Then retold again and again.
The idea may be kind of a gimmick to get people interested but it also keeps people guessing. There are many plots and twists throughout. I also love the fact that movie is so fast paced! Here is a tip: Don’t turn your eyes away. This a movie that you need to watch all of it. Pay attention! I almost must put in that this is an amazing blu-ray. Spectacular. One of the best I have seen.
Final Verdict: for 6 bucks? I got one sweet deal! Worth it!
