    Bleh. I listen to bad music. I like bad movies.

    Coverage sucked, too many commercials and rampant doping.

    Acting is fine. Special effects are also fine, decent car chase.

    The story is so full of holes and none of the characters aside from Dennis Quaid have the depth of a puddle. You have to really suspend your disbelief every 5 minutes.

    This would all make the movie simply mediocre, if it weren't for the 'vantage point' gimmick. 20 minutes into the movie they rewind (actually rewind through what happened...) and start off at the beginning again. This happens multiple times, and by the last you're just waiting for the movie to end. That and none of the 'vantage points' illustrate anything interesting about the character or their perspective.

    Wow, we were deciding whether to go see Vantage Point or Jumper this weekend, and picked Jumper. It sucked. I thought we had picked the wrong one. Now it sounds like it wouldn't have mattered which one we chose.

    Scratch another one off the list. Seems like it's getting hard to find good movies these days. I'm not a huge fan of chick flicks, not big on pretentious Hollywood irony. I just really want a good story that I can enjoy. If there are some hot guys, so much the better.
