Not even a star- studded cast had the power to fix the directing of Vantage Point. Dennis Quaid, Forest Whitaker, Matthew Fox, William Hurt, and Sigourney Weaver all played a role in this film. The plot revolves around an assassination attempt of a U.S. president (William Hurt) in Salamanca, Spain. The assassination is viewed through the vantage point of various characters an American civilian with a camcorder (Forest Whitaker), A secret servicemen (Dennis Quaid), and others. Once the president is shot the movie begins to take a turn for the worse. The plot begins to become confusing. After every 10 minute segment of current actions there is a rewinding back to the previous point of the assassination; just to eventually make a little bit of progress into the plot. Without this technique the movie would not have been confusing and generally irritating to watch. I myself at times sighed in frustration when I saw the clock rewind twenty-three minutes back to the assassination. Despite great casting, this film only earns a 6 out of 10 on my scale.
