My friend Gabriella suggested I watch this movie, so I finally got around to watching it this week. The President of the United States is about to give a speech in Spain, when the unthinkable happens…..he is shot. The mayhem that ensues leaves everyone scrambling to find out who was responsible. We are taken through eight different vantage points and each time a little more of the puzzle is revealed. This movie has an impressive cast with very good performances from Forest Whitaker, Dennis Quaid, and Mathew Fox. It is Forest Whitaker and Dennis Quaid that shine brightest in this very good movie. This movie can get a little repetitive like in the movie Memento, but it delivers in spite of that.
