Vantage Point

Bad trailer, for a good movie.

“Eight strangers. Eight points of view. One truth.”

When I first saw this trailer, I thought it would be a movie that would cover eight people’s points of view about a single event, in this case, the president getting shot. So, I figured that most of the movie would be about getting statements from these eight people to determine what happened that day. Fortunately, that was not the case.

I just saw the movie on DVD at a friend’s house. While there are eight people, they are not all strangers to each other. Some of them have a part in what happens that day. While the first part of the movie goes over and over (from different people’s point of view) what happens right before and after the president gets shot, there is more to the movie than that.

Once we get a good idea what is going on, then the movie starts to make sense, and the good guys go after the bad guys.

If you like explosions, and car chases, you should like this movie. I did. It moves right along.
