Madamoiselle: Vantage Point

Finally, I got time to go to the movies again and this time, went for "Vantage Point" that I heard so many times that it was a really good one. Indeed, for me, it was a thumbs up. My sisters weren't please enough with the rewinds and flashbacks but I don't mind about it cause it does gave a unique experience to view different points of what is going on with the scenes. As more flashbacks were played, the more you'll get the answers to all the confusions and it's true if you don't see from all aspects, you'll tend to make wrong assumptions and the results were actually surprising. Still, the downside of it is the ending of the movie, like I went like "That's just it?!!" But then, I also think that it's a clever plot. Overall, I rate it a 8 out of 10.


Movie Pic

Thomas Barnes (Dennis Quaid) and Kent Taylor (Matthew Fox) are Secret Service agents assigned to protect President Ashton (William Hurt) at a landmark summit on the global war on terror. When President Ashton is shot moments after his arrival in Spain, chaos ensues. In the crowd is Howard Lewis (Forest Whitaker), an American tourist video taping the event to show his kids. There is also Rex (Sigourney Weaver) an American TV news producer who is reporting on the conference. We follow each person's perspective of the same 15 minutes before and immediately after the shooting to get to the terrifying truth behind the assassination attempt.
