3.5 out of 10 Slow to start with
Mark from Dublin, 30 Sep 2008
I was actually looking forward to this with the strong cast shame forrest part was a supporting role. I found the different viewpoints although essential to build the story repetitive and started to bore me, is it me but is that just a cheap way of filling a movie using the same scenes over and again. However once all the vantage points were in we were off and the movie came into his own and I found myself enjoying the film would recommend, but mark down for the repetition just too much for me.

3.5 out of 10 A good film
Natalie from Kilkenny, 01 Sep 2008
I had heard that this film wasn't very good but after watching it i thought it was a good film. I thought the format of the film was good with the replay of the scene from different points of view. Some people could find this annoying but I didn't. The action starts straight away and this makes the film feel quite short , all in all I thought this film was good and would recommend it for rental

2.5 out of 10 Not bad
Peter from Dublin, 17 Sep 2008
I thought the story was super up to a point. The different vantage points were a little repetitive but the made the film very exciting. Some good cliffhanger moments made me sit up. Unfortunately the story never unfolded fully. Why did they want to kill the president? Who were 'they'? Not bad at the same time.

1 out of 10 vantage point
peter from Westmeath, 08 Nov 2008
Terrible film. Very messy with very little plot. The timeline is a bit dubious as there seems to be differtent amount of time between certain events from each viewpoint, but asides from this it's a poor plot. I dont know how they got so many good actors to be in this rubbish.

2.5 out of 10 My Point of View
Michael from Cork, 19 Jan 2009
Quirky take on the art of story-telling that just about hits the mark. THe same story told from six different perspectives works well with the enevitable twist at the end. A very cliched car chase lets things down near the end but otherwise an ok film
