Vantage Point

A Series of Very Fortunate Events (spoiler alert!)

Vantage Point follows the "assasination" of the President of the United States at a summit in Salamanca from the View/Vantage Points of about 8 different characters: the bodyguards, the terrorists, the bodyguard/terrorist, the REAL president, viewers at the summit, and a news agency.

The movie loops from one perspective to another, each one building the plot and providing a crucial piece to the puzzle that is what actually happenned. It all climaxes towards the end in a series of VERY fortunate events where all their paths crash and collide - literally, even.

Vantage Point has a talented star-studded cast of Forest Whitaker, Dennis Quaid, Matthew Fox, Wiliam Hurt, Sigourney Weaver and Zoe Saldana; and its got some SERIOUS car chasing scenes in the streets of Spain second only to THE BOURNE IDENTITY films...I do not blaspheme.

This is one thriller you shouldn't miss...
