Vantage Point


Bee n i went for movie last nite. Here's the plot.

Vantage Point is the story of eight strangers with eight different points of view each trying to piece together the truth behind an assassination attempt on the President of the United States. These eight people include Thomas Barnes (Dennis Quaid) and Kent Taylor (Matthew Fox), Secret Service agents assigned to protect President Ashton (William Hurt) at an anti-terrorism summit in Salamanca, Spain. Also involved are Howard Lewis (Forest Whitaker), an American tourist who thinks he’s captured the shooter on his camcorder while videotaping the event for his family back home, Enrique, a mysterious Spanish cop who is considered a major suspect in the assassination, and TV news producer Rex Brooks (Sigourney Weaver), relaying the historic event to millions of TV viewers across the globe. When a double of President Ashton is shot moments after stepping to the podium, chaos ensues. Terrorists attack the podium and the actual location of the President - who had earlier been moved to a safe location after his aides learn of a definite threat against the summit. Barnes must uncover the truth while facing his memories of a previous assassination attempt as well as betrayal from within the security detail. As they and others reveal their stories, the pieces of the puzzle fall into places.

Our review : hmm...okey kot. Out of 10, i think, we'll give a 5 only. Good action but lack of story-line...weak in delivering more umpphh! We do not like the concept of retelling of the story...a bit boring lor and stale lor. But then again, its my opinion. Different people might liked the movie...
