Vantage Point

I just got back from seeing this movie with my father-in-law. Our jaws dropped in awe at the beginning of the movie, and we were continually kept on the edge of our seats throughout the rest of the film.

Vantage Point, starring some very big names such as Forest Whitaker, Matthew Fox, Dennis Quaid and William Hurt, is a film about 8 different vantage points when the American president gets assassinated during a summit in Spain.

This is a very smartly written film, because just as soon as someone's "vantage point" is over, they take you back and you view the same events from the eyes of a different person. Now, some people I talked to didn't like the film, but it is not your typical thriller, and the method used for telling the story is very unique and interesting. Plus, there was enough pulse-pounding action to keep you glued to the screen.

Great movie. Might have to buy this one. 5 out of 5.

I just might have to go see that... it looked interesting when we saw the previews.
BTW, how did you manage to go see a movie in the middle of the day? Don't you have a JOB or something like that???

OOPS, my bad - I just realized you saw this on Saturday, not today. My brain is a little slow this time of night...

Slacker! You're not blogging. Too much xbox and online gaming and, oh yeah, house renovating.
