As Vantage Point becomes increasingly busy with personal betrayals and redemptions, the ostensible politics, reductive to begin with, fall by the wayside.

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.

With a little more work this could have been a first-rate thriller along the lines of the Bourne films, because the concept is intriguing and our interest is held for a significant part of the film.
March 17, 2008
There's roughly 20 minutes of story here, and no matter how many times they stop and start over again from an even more preposterous angle, it's still going to play out like a lousy episode of 24.
March 17, 2008
If you're watching for perfectly matched action you're not into the mystery and you probably aren't going to be very sympathetic to the effort involved.
March 16, 2008
Writer Barry Levy has added some snap, crackle and pop to what would otherwise be a routine action film had it been presented in chronological order.
March 15, 2008
A curta duração e o ritmo constantemente frenético do filme mantêm o espectador atento e interessado, mesmo que o objeto de tanta atenção não faça muito sentido em retrospecto.
March 14, 2008
This will probably be the worst film of the year - that people will like.
March 7, 2008
Watchably silly at best, it's the political thriller as an unintentional comedy of errors - 24 meets Noises Off.
March 7, 2008
Vantage Point might sound intriguing on paper but it's all gimmick and not a lot of substance.
March 7, 2008
As much as we'd like to see an American president made accountable, we don't have to see it over and over and over again.
March 7, 2008
The stories are cleverly interwoven, with a couple of unexpected twists, and the patient viewer is rewarded with a doozy of a car chase in the last reel.
March 7, 2008
Although mounted with no little efficiency by director Pete Travis (who previously made the TV drama-doc 'Omagh'), the narrative enterprise actually hides a one-dimensional world view, with civilian casualties mere background set dressing.
March 7, 2008
It charms - despite hitting the odd seam of schmaltz - and teenagers will find much to tempt them away from their X-Boxes and PSPs.
March 7, 2008
As daft as it all becomes, Vantage Point is never dull. Approach it like a double-bill of 24 and there's enough excitement to overcome the clichés, particularly during the climactic car chase.
March 7, 2008
Some okay thrills with good performances and some smarts. But the last reel plunge spoils things.
March 6, 2008
This pseudo-political action thriller is rather half baked editorially but otherwise overcooked.
March 5, 2008
Vantage Point prefers to stick with the familiar, so that it ends up, bizarrely enough, affirming rather than challenging the viewer's prejudices.
March 4, 2008
A monument to cinematic suckiness.
March 2, 2008
a ripping good yarn
