With such a great cast, I had high hopes for Vantage Point. Forest Whitaker and Sigourney Weaver are each worth the price of admission.
Vantage Point tells the story of an extremely complicated plot to kidnap the President of the United States. Dennis Quaid is a veteran member of the President’s Secret Service security detail, recently returned to active duty after taking a bullet for the President a year ago.
The most interesting aspect of this movie is the action is shown, over and over, from different angles and perspectives. As the movie develops the action, we see the details of the conspiracy.
Forest Whitaker is an American tourist with a video camera. The contents of his camera help sort out the story. Sigourney Waver role is quite small, but she is effective.
Vantage Point has lots of action, lots of stars, but it was not really as thrilling as it should have been-even with a good car chase.
