Customer Review

on 10 June 2008
Vantage point follows the assassination of a presidential double and is shown through the perspectives of eight people. The film is essentially a jigsaw which you get a clearer picture of at the end even if it seems like a few pieces are still missing.

I've seen so many films I've lost count but vantage point's gimmick, what makes it stand out, if you will is the way in which its told. Through the perspectives of the characters we see the film twist and turn in rapid succession creating a multi-layered story of betrayal and terrorism this style appeals to me as the film spirals in unpredictable directions just when you think you've got it pegged. This style however is where the film receives the majority of its criticism for being repetitive, which to an extent it is, while this style will engage some people it will bore others.

Due to the rapid perspective switches few characters are developed and while the cast perform well in their parts they never excel,save perhaps Forest Whitaker.

Vantage point boils down to disposable entertainment, which requires a certain amount of suspension of disbelief at points an ultimately culminates with blistering car chase, not perfect by any means but worth seeing once if just to draw your own conclusions

Overall 7/10
