Vantage Point is the story of eight strangers with eight different points of view each trying to piece together the truth behind an assassination attempt on the President of the United States. A double of President Ashton is shot moments after stepping to the podium for an anti-terrorism summit held in Salamanca, Spain. Chaos ensues with two bombs being set off, one in the park the summit in held in and one near the hotel president Ashton hid in. Terrorists attack the podium and the actual location of the President – who had earlier been moved to a safe location after his aides learn of a definite threat against the summit. Barnes, a FBI agent must uncover the truth while facing his memories of a previous assassination attempt as well as betrayal from within the security detail. When Barnes investigate deeper and deeper into the case, more clue fall into place as he discovers betrayal, love, and the plans of a mastermind.I was rather disappointed at this movie because just by looking at the trailers, I thought this movie is going to be amazing. Unfortunately, this movie is a little too repetitive, repeating one scene in different perspectives for about half of the movie. Overall, after the repeating scenes, it is great. The mastermind terrorists fooled the FBI with some very special technology. However, the ending was a little out of place because the terrorists driving with the real president crashed their car just to save a girl. I thought that is a little awkward for those terrorists to let a little girl destroy a plan that was nearly perfect.I guess I expected too much out of this movie. I will rate it a D-. By the way, this movie is 90 minute long and is directed by Pete Travis
