VANTAGE POINT (Theatrical Release USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Vantage Point
retells the assassination attempt of a United States’ president from eight different viewpoints. Even though each viewpoint adds more information to solving the mystery of who to assign responsibility for the assassination attempt, the movie’s story runs into monotonousness due to the constant retelling of the story.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This film plays as a thriller, but it’s definitely not on the best of the thriller movies’ list.
