1.0 out of 5 stars Pro-American viewpoint, 21 Mar. 2008
(Spoilers: Do not read any further if you have not seen this film)

Vantage Point was something i was dreading going to see. The characters are largely one dimesional; a wooden plot trying to garnish the assantion as a "conspiracy set-up"; poor editing failing to substain our attention and worst of all, having sequences being flown back in time, again and again without gradually seaming into the next sequence with little fuss. The direction was a complete disaster, not only failing to seam the pieces together, but encouraging a frantic and crazy car chase to be the main direct focus, the typical element of a thriller which it is trying to be, but doesn't succeed very well, since the main bodyguard on route to saving the president crashes his car at least three times and manages to escape only with cuts and brushes, one of which he would have obviously died instantly (a la Blues Brothers, when the hotel explodes and Jake and Elwood escape unharmed)

The only possibility in the film, the assanation of an American president with the current on-going situation that has been created in the middle East.

Vantage Point is ridiculous and incredibly offensive, determined to perseve American's increasing fragile hold on the world, by making them to be looking out to be the heroes in a sentimental fashion of a finish, which anyone knows is not possible. Propaganda film. Avoid.
