8 Strangers, 8 Points of view... 1 Truth

Thomas Barnes (Dennis Quaid) and Kent Taylor (Matthew Fox) are two Secret Service agents assigned to protect President Ashton (William Hurt) at a landmark summit on the global war on terror. When President Ashton is shot moments after his arrival in Spain, chaos ensues and disparate lives collide. In the crowd is Howard Lewis (Forest Whitaker), an American tourist videotaping the historic event to show his kids when he returns home. Also there is Rex (Sigourney Weaver), an American TV news producer who is reporting on the conference. It's only as we follow each person's perspective of the same 15 minutes prior to and immediately after the shooting that the terrifying truth behind the assassination attempt is revealed.

What can i say apart from Wow, This film really gripped me I saw the trailers before I went and thought possibly this had ruined the main twist in the film but I was wrong. It turns out the trailer doesnt give to much away. Forest Whitaker puts in another strong performance.

 Action - Packed, Seat - Gripping, and Mind Blowingly Good!!!

This has to be one of the best written films ever, the film starts off from the view of the local news team capturing shots of the President about to make his speech, he then gets shot and a couple of bombs go off and several moments later agent Barnes (Dennis Quaid) comes storming into the news teams van and asks for them to play the tapes to find out any information, looking at these tapes he makes a shocking discovery but then the film kicks you right back to 12pm again and starts off all over again from another persons point of view and basically the film is like this most of the way through, it follows 8 people's point of view of the assasination of the President, each view revealing shocking new information, so just when you think you have figured it all out you end up been completely wrong.
Once all the points of view have taken place they then all link up with each other which makes the whole storyline of this film absolutely fantastic, and then the film comes to a conclusion with a breathtaking car chase (although sometimes a bit fake - take note when you get to watch this - during the chase the white Opel Astra police car drives down a load of steps and bounces off the ground at the bottom, leaving the front end hanging off the car, yet in the next scene the car seems to be back to brand spanking new again??) Despite this little meaningless error the chase is still one of the best I've ever seen in a film, and some shots put the "Bourne" chases to shame, and lets face it - they are the most amazing car chases ever.
Overall this film is worth to be honest 6 stars out of 5, deffinately the best film of 2008 so far, strongly recommended to everyone.

 Very Clever

Just seen at cinema. The assassination plot of the president is retold by reviewing where 5 different people were at the time, From a secret agent, to the terrorist, to a person in the crowd. Each story tells you more about what went on and it all flows freely. Very clever film. I left the cinema very impressed. Will buy on DVD.

 Good

Enjoyable, and well made but a little to tidy towards the end tho. Same thing from diffrent points of view was annoying initially, but u get use to it. Well acted by Dennis Quaid. Car Chase's with all those people on the pavement, looked well scary. Worth a watch.

 Original and interesting, but...

I had set my expectations for this film unnaturally high partly because of the slump of good movies released recently and the fact that the premise of the film, not new, but not as banal, could have made it particularly special. I was expecting a Groundhog Day or Memento, hell even a reverberation of Rashomon. Unfortunately the film left me rather unimpressed.
The risk of making a film in which time repeats itself is obvious, but sadly overlooked by the filmmakers. By the second or so rendition of the sequence I could literally feel the keenness I had for the movie being sapped by the derivativeness of the characters, I couldn't tell you the name of any of them, let alone any defining characteristics that make them likable, unlikable or anything in between.
The plot lacks that special something that makes it great, which isn't helped along by the way it is drawn out with seemingly no development until right before the end, when it turns into an opportunity for glorification of Americans and the "war on terror".
The good parts then. The film really feels like it has all been filmed within that first twenty or so minutes which is refreshing to watch, and as more of the 'vantage points' become known the film hastens into a competent extended action sequence, the jewel in the crown being an excellently shot car chase.
Overall a letdown, but not as much of a letdown as everything else I've been to see recently.
