A story that could easily (and more effectively) have been told in about half the time.

...counts on its audience not thinking about what they're seeing, but instead being mesmerized by flash and boom ...This is a movie to make you angry, but not with the straw evildoers it puts on screen.

Vantage Point offers a modicum of entertainment but it requires viewers to react more forcefully from the gut than the mind. It's viscerally effective but lobotomized.

A gimmicky thriller without much of a gimmick or many thrills, "Vantage Point" suffers, too, from being out of synch with its time.

Alas, this well-crafted terrorist plot is sandwiched between two terrible acts, making for the kind of movie that you should walk into late and sneak out of early.

The information sorting and gathering required by Barry L. Levy's screenplay feels like night school as opposed to a great night out at the movies.

What is the real crime? Why, beating the audience about the ears, eyes and brain with essentially the same sequence of events from eight characters' points of view, none of which adds much more than deafening hysteria and identically dreadful music.

Those inclined to scrutinize the logic of Barry Levy's screenplay are likely to come away as baffled by its farfetched twists as amused by its bombastic excesses.

Vantage Point's summed up by its name; from some angles, it looks like an above-average studio thriller, but from others it falls out of sight fast.

Once the full panoply of bad guys is disclosed, the movie becomes just another absurdly prolonged hot pursuit, complete with a lost little girl for a dollop of extra melodrama.
February 20, 2008
A competently-made action-thriller but nothing particularly ground-breaking once it casually discards its pretense of being told from multiple points of view.

Vantage Point is a patented representative of this year's early mediocrity. Vantage Point is trailer trash.

Vantage Point prefers to stick with the familiar, so that it ends up, bizarrely enough, affirming rather than challenging the viewer's prejudices.
February 22, 2008
No matter how you look at it, Vantage Point is a letdown.

A monument to cinematic suckiness.

To fall for Vantage Point you have to throw away any connection to reality.

[Vantage Point is] a puzzle cut by a drunken, three-fingered jigsaw operator who lost a few pieces and chewed on a few others.

If you are looking for mindless action, it's not bad. But since this is trying to be something more than that, I can't quite recommend it.
