This movie was pushed hard by advertisers when it was at the theater. I seem to recall being bombarded by advertising to the point where we decided we didn’t want to see the film at the theater. I believe I added it to my Netflix list not long after it debuted.
Vantage Point is sort of a combination of Groundhog Day and 24. Yes, it’s an odd cross. And honestly, Groundhog Day never got annoying because it kept a sense of humor about it. When we got to the third rewind, my wife and I both looked at each other and said — “Is it possible to be bored and interested at the same time?”
Here‘s the IMDB link.
About halfway through the movie, I was debating watching the rest and then it started wrapping itself up in the last 40 minutes or so. Almost like the filmmaker was editing the film and going “I think people are going to walk out soon unless we do something…”
This movie honestly didn’t do much for me. But I’m glad Forest Whitaker’s character survived, as it’s about the only thing that saved this movie from a 1/4 review. As such, it gets 2/4. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t like it much either.
