Nils van der Linden quote iconHas a lot of potential, but the end result is something of a disappointment.

David Jenkin quote iconIn some regards, Vantage Point is a bit of a disappointment.

24.com
Natalie Sineke quote iconAlthough Vantage Point should be commended for making active viewers out of the audience, its technique is tacky, there are several plot holes and with every re-tell there's a twist.
5
BBC
Paul Arendt quote iconVantage Point is an average thriller built on a neat gimmick.
10
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconVantage Point offers a modicum of entertainment but it requires viewers to react more forcefully from the gut than the mind. It's viscerally effective but lobotomized.
13
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconBy the end, Vantage Point is such a unholy mess of drooling sentiment and sloppy loose ends that you’ll hate yourself for being suckered in.
8
ScreenIt
quote iconAlthough certainly not novel in terms of plot or storytelling structure, and suffering from a few issues that probably could and easily should have been remedied with a few script tweaks, the film moderately succeeds in terms of what it's trying to be and achieve.
