What did you say about me being box office poison?

On the Big Board
Position Staff In Brief
44/98 David Mumpower What seems like a 24 knockoff on the surface offers some inventive sequences but doesn't add up to much in the end.
171/196 Max Braden Totally lacking in believability, but the pace and wild car chase help keep your attention.

Vantage Point examines the potential fallout that can occur when global terror takes place.

Dennis Quaid and Lost's Matthew Fox star as Secret Service agents who are charged with protecting the President of the United States (William Hurt). When he heads overseas to Spain to attend an important summit about the global war on terror, the president is shot within moments of his arrival in the foreign land. Naturally, things become chaotic very quickly.

The film unfolds through multiple perspectives. Howard Lewis (Forest Whitaker) is a tourist who is filming the arrival of the president to show his children when he returns to his home. Also present in the crowd is Rex (Sigourney Weaver), a television news producer who is present to report on the conference. The movie shows each person's point of view of the 15 minutes before and right after the shooting, eventually revealing the truth behind the assassination attempt. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
