Vantage Point

Lisa and I got to the movies on Friday night in what was probably our last trip to the cinema as non-parents. So we whooped it up and went gold lounge with drinks, nibbles and Connoisseur ice-creams. I thought from the previews that Vantage Point would be worth the cinema admission price but hadn’t expected it to be as good as it was. The basic plot is an assassination attempt on the US President but the movie follows the action through from a number of different perspective each time letting you see a little more of the behind the scenes detail and taking the story a little further. It worked very well. I kept thinking that I was going to have to go back and see it again but the story was told well and if you looked away from the screen to open your chocolate obsession or find your bourbon you didn’t lose the plot, the story isn’t reliant on piecing together all the little details- although because I didn’t know that it kept me paying attention so maybe just forget I mentioned it :) If you don’t like on the edge of your seat suspense then pick something else but I give it a double thumbs up, go see it.
