The premise is interesting, even if not original at all, and there are great action scenes full of energy here to hold our attention, but the film relies on numerous coincidences and the actors are mostly wasted playing poorly developed characters.

A unique thriller that shows the same story from several different perspectives. It feels like you are solving a puzzle as you learn more from each perspective. (First and only full viewing - In my early twenties)

This movie happened in the blink of an eye, and I couldn't keep up with it! What the hell just went down, and how do the characters play through this event?! Don't know if I'll ever see it again.

The technique of the storytelling is not for everyone but it's a refresher from all of the formulaic plots of other action films.

The approach is interesting.

Vraiment bien. La meme histoire racontee de differents points de vue. Palpitant.

The critics were too hard on this film. Very exciting and is better watching it the second time around. Worthwhile.

This was a pretty good action/suspense movie. It really kept me guessing until the end. The concept was also pretty awesome and well executed.

I thought is was pretty good. Watched on cable, definitely no blockbuster but good entertainment.

Cool premise ruined by a shitty storyline. It was over before it even began.

Pretty fast paced political thriller and I liked the multiple viewpoint idea, although, of course, done before

The premise was unique and interesting but it didn't work out in the end.

Frankly, I don't care what many are saying about Vantage Point. Yes, it has some sloppy performances and the story is a little disjointed. But, I can't deny the fact that I had a great time and was on the edge of my seat throughout. This type of film would be difficult to direct and produce, given its unique style, so I greatly respect the filmmakers. Quaid, Hurt and Fox are the standouts as far as acting goes. The movie tends to be silly and unrealistic at times, but it sure did entertain me.

It's actually an interesting premise with a pretty cool beginning. It gets rolling and you think it still has promise. It flames out due to overacting from Quaid and the rest of the cast.

This looks so good, I can't believe I have to wait until February to see it

It was awesome i loved the suspense leading up to that moment at the end

Decently acted, paced and shot thriller with a unique enough premise, Vantage Point is a mildly entertaining but largely forgettable affair. The rewinding nature of the plot manages to grow repetitive and tiresome eventually instead of clever, and Forest Whitaker's performance comes off as too obvious and even corny as well as an expectedly dull William Hurt. Vantage Point could've been so much more with a better script and perhaps a lengthier running time, but as it stands, it's disposable entertainment.

Great idea but crappy execution with some very good actors doing some very bad work.
