    Vantage Point is a difficult movie for me to rate. It has good action, acting, and a good enough premise. However, going back in time 8 times makes the movie feel tedious and the conclusion is not satisfying enough to make the long 2 hours worth the wait. Overall, it isn't a bad movie, but compared to what it could have been, it is weak and unsatisfying.

    Produced by Paul Greengrass, and conceived as something of a companion film to his own "Bloody Sunday," there wasn't a moment in "Omagh" that rang false. There's not a single one in Vantage Point that rings true.
  2. Vantage Point starts to slide off the rails when it tracks a tourist (Forest Whitaker) and his trusty camcorder; instead of Zapruder-like intrigue, the episode has him running around like an agent in a rote thriller.

    If you can work your way past Vantage Point's goofy casting that places a bland, blank-eyed Hurt in the White House, then I suppose you can manage to forgive this "Rashomon" rip-off's other glaring idiosyncrasies, of which there are many.
