Default 'Vantage Point' - High-Def Digest Review

Kenneth's review of 'Vantage Point' has been posted. The film has it's problems, but he says this Blu-ray is a showstopper, with stunning video, a reference-level (Five Star!) audio track, and a decent spread of supplements. This is the sort of demo material high definition was made for. Recommended.

I agree with everything minus the audio.


That ain't no goddamn reference audio score--not by a long shot!

The rewinding didn't bother me like it did others, in fact I found the audience's reactions of disdain entertaining in itself while I was watching it.)

My only real problem with the movie was the laughably cornball ending. If you've seen it, you know what I'm talking about....

I thought this sucked hard, though a friend of mine really liked it. That's the way it goes I suppose. I was bored to tears by about the 3rd rewind and was tempted to leave the cinema, something I never do. I persevered and enjoyed the cheesy action once all the vantage points had been done to death.

My advice would be to lower your expectation and switch your brain off for this. Kinda like watching something like Crank - except that's a great fun film.

Nice concept, it just didn't play out well. I started getting bored with it. The twist, wasn't much of a twist. A fairly pedestrian political thriller. Freddy

I almost turned it off. The "twist" was just enough to pull my finger off the stop button. Will not be adding this to my collection or recommending this to others. It did look good though.
