Review: Movie: Vantage Point

So I went and saw the movie “Vantage Point” last night; I had mediocre expectations and it actually turned out to be fairly decent. It has non-stop action, but the cooler thing was that it keeps showing the same event from the perspective of different people who were involved. I guess I like movies that take an interesting method to delivering the story; another example is a movie from ten years ago with Gwyneth Paltrow called “Sliding Doors”, where the story splits into two possible story lines near the beginning and switches between the two stories throughout the movie, obviously reconciling at the end. Or “Memento”, which was shown out of sequence.

I know it is weird for some people to have to THINK while at a movie, but give it a shot sometime; you might like it.

    Sliding Doors is one of my favorites! I’ll have to check out this one, too.
