The stylishly slick action flick that doesn't exactly tread into unfamiliar territory, but is still quite entertaining.

Is it too much to ask for procedural thrillers like Vantage Point to connect all their dots before the closing credits?

Although based around a familiar, Rashomon-style concept, Vantage Point ratchets up its intensity so effectively that the lack of originality hardly matters.

If you thought 24's perspective on terrorism was, well, limited, get ready to groan. The meat and potatoes of Vantage Point -- the suicide bomb explosions, the bloody fisticuffs and blaring car chases -- are indeed awesome, and that's what truly matters f

Vantage Point takes a pretty high concept, dribbles a bunch of red herrings all over it, and makes things go boom, reaping better yields than the average TV show.

Vantage Point is a tense and imaginative thriller that reels you in the longer it goes along, only to lose focus in the last 15 minutes. This final reel misstep is a shame, but it's not enough to ruin all the good work that's come before it.

It charms - despite hitting the odd seam of schmaltz - and teenagers will find much to tempt them away from their X-Boxes and PSPs.

Some okay thrills with good performances and some smarts. But the last reel plunge spoils things.

This pseudo-political action thriller is rather half baked editorially but otherwise overcooked.

a ripping good yarn

A decent thriller that takes time to get started

Vantage Point is a smart film with a complex plot and lots of action. That's not a typical combination

Suspenseful, yes - but it's all too far-fetched to matter much.

It doesn't have much more going for it than the rewind gimmick, a very talented cast of actors, and some pretty good action sequences.

Pete Travis' Rashomon retread reads more like a less funny Groundhog Day.
