DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Thriller - This is a mystery/action thriller with an unconventional storytelling structure, telling one story from eight different perspectives. While this is on the whole an ensemble film the main star is Dennis Quaid; fans of lesser-used stars here, such as Sigourney Weaver, may be disappointed. The film is aimed toward an adult audience and is too intense and complex for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Vantage Point offers a modicum of entertainment but it requires viewers to react more forcefully from the gut than the mind. It's viscerally effective but lobotomized.

USA Today Full Review
Average Like too many action-adventure movies that are short on plot intricacies but long on gimmick and explosives, too much is given away in the trailer.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 168 moviegoers:
TEENS:Both males and females loved "Vantage Point." Lots of very high reviews with no low reviews. Highly Recommended!
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Males loved "Vantage Point," and female reviews weren't too far behind. However, quite a few of the ladies only rated it as good/average, which is still good, but it may be a bit of a disappointment if you're paying full movie ticket prices.
ADULTS:These reviews, both males and females, are very typical of a movie most enjoyed very much. About three-quarters truly enjoyed the movie. Half of the remaining quarter rated it as average and the rest rated it below average. Most of you will enjoy "Vantage Point" very much. Highly Recommended.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Thomas Barnes (Dennis Quaid) and Kent Taylor (Matthew Fox), are two Secret Service agents assigned to protect President Ashton (William Hurt) at a landmark summit on the global war on terror. When President Ashton is shot moments after his arrival in Spain, chaos ensues and disparate lives collide. In the crowd is Howard Lewis (Forest Whitaker) an American tourist video-taping the historic event to show his kids when he returns home. Also there is Rex (Sigourney Weaver) an American TV news producer who is reporting on the conference. It's only as we follow each person's perspective of the same 15 minutes prior to and immediately after the shooting that the terrifying truth behind the assassination attempt is revealed.
