Movie: "Vantage Point" 4****

After our Saturday morning trip to Costco my wife and I went to a matinee showing of the movie “Vantage Point” at Medford’s Tinseltown. The movie is about an attempted assassination of a United States President in Spain for a Summit Conference on the War on Terrorism. The story is told over and over from the vantage point of a number of witnesses. The movie has not received very good reviews from the liberal professional critics but we enjoyed it very much. I think the reason the liberal critics did not like it is because it does it does not take an anti American point of view. This move is for the most part politically neutral and is an action movie that is very well done. Dennis Quade stars as a Secret Service agent and is the best part of the movie. Sigourney Weaver is very good as a TV news director. For more information click on the title for a link to the Internet Movie Data Base page for the movie. I give it 4 ****
