If you’re familiar with the Japanese story and film called Rashomon, (and I suppose to some extent, the TV series 24), then you’ll find quite a lot to like in Vantage Point. It’s one part point-of-view experiment and one part traditional thriller. If you’re not into all that egg-head “perspective and perception of the human condition” stuff, there’s a freakishly cool car chase. So, you know, fun for everyone in my family.
