During an historic counter-terrorism summit in Spain, the President of the United States is struck down by an assassin's bullet. Eight strangers have a perfect view of the kill, but what did they really see? As the minutes leading up to the fatal shot are replayed through the eyes of each eyewitness, the reality of the assassination takes shape. But just when you think you know the answer, the shattering final truth is revealed. Vantage Point is a mindbending political action-thriller starring Dennis Quaid, Matthew Fox, Academy Award® Winner Forest Whitaker (Best Actor 2006, The Last King of Scotland), with Sigourney Weaver and Academy Award® winner William Hurt (Best Actor 1985, Kiss of the Spider Woman).

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A gimmick in search of its own point.
Rotten: While the title, trailer and commercials imply that we'll be carefully piecing together clues to a complex assassination attempt as seen from several perspectives, the final product turns out to be a tepid thriller that promises more than it delivers.
Rotten: When everything is finally revealed, the story Vantage Point tells is fairly pedestrian, and nothing special is gained from all the stopping and restarting.
Rotten: Chugging forward and chundering back, the movie keeps promising to whip up something hellishly complicated, but what keeps the movie going for an hour and a half is not a complicated plot but a stingy way of dribbling out information.
Good action movie but could of done better
This movie has a good plot and all but it zooms back so many times it starts to get a little annoying. But overall the movie is pretty good but i think that $15 for this movie is kind of a rip off itunes should lower it a bit. Choose yes if you agree.
Best Movie EVER!
I absolutely LOVED Vantage Point. It kept me on the edge of my seat, like any horror movie would, except it wasn't so gore and bloody. It's a movie that keeps everyone thinking, and it's so unpredictable... The actors AND writers deserve two thumbs up; it's a job well done. I could watch this movie over and over again, and not get bored.
Imaginative and unpredictable!
Actually I liked the movie since I saw the trailer for the first time. So, as soon as I had chance to go to a theatre, I went to see it. Amazing actors, good graphics, imaginative script and unpredictable at certain points. Resuming, it is an excellent movie to watch, truly worth!
