The American President takes another lump on the forehead in the new movie “Vantage Point”, which has the U.S. President being assassinated while at some international summit in Mexico. (Which begs the question: Who holds International summits in Mexico?) Secret Service agents Matthew Fox and Dennis Quaid has to find the killer or killers, and they have to piece together the evidence to do it. My prediction is that it’ll end up being some kind of American conspiracy to kill the President by Big Business or Big Oil to stop a legislation, law, or start a war somewhere. Hollywood is currently Conspiracy Movie crazy, and it wouldn’t be much of a stretch.
An attempted assassination of the president is told from five different points of view.
Starring Dennis Quaid, Matthew Fox, William Hurt, Forest Whitaker, Sigourney Weaver, and directed by first-timer Pete Travis. The film hits theaters Feb. 15, 2008.
The trailer (below) gives away a hell of a lot, including some supposedly involvement by Muslim terrorists. But I’m sure they’re just a red herring.
