I went to a special preview screening of Vantage Point last night and was disappointed. Although it’s definitely a thrill a minute, it’s too over-the-top, confused, and–surprisingly, given the cast–poorly acted. It seemed hurriedly slapped together. It had some interesting bits but the ending was, as Jesus would say, laughable.
If anyone has seen Charlie Wilson’s War or Atonement or Michael Clayton I’d be interested to hear reports. I still need to see There Will Be Blood.
PS – every time I go downtown, I wish I hadn’t. I have to stop going.
