Vantage Point

I've seen "Amores Perros" sometime back which starts with a car accident where three persons are present in that incident. Then the story expands from there with how the three persons joined there telling the past events. You would have seen the same style in Manirathnam's "Aaydha Ezhuthu". But this movie has 8 connecting points.

"Vantage Point" starts off with a political meeting taking place at Spain. US president is getting assassinated and bombings followed by that. Press (GNN in this movie) is covering it live in its professional(?) way. Wait, this is the first view. After this, there are some more views (7) remaining describing the incidents from different starting points. All this are shown starting from 11:59am till that bombing.

What has happened in the background and what is the climax? Please see it in the screen. Otherwise, you cannot enjoy it.

This movie has an excellent car chase scene like those in "Ronin" and "Transporter". An excellent action thriller!!
