Vantage Point

 (2008)

Vantage Point Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Thomas Barnes (Dennis Quaid) and Kent Taylor (Matthew Fox) are 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. In the crowd is Howard Lewis (Forest Whitaker), an American tourist video taping the historic event to show his kids when he returns home. There is also 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.

For more about Vantage Point and the Vantage Point Blu-ray release, see Vantage Point Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Dennis Quaid, Matthew Fox, Forest Whitaker, Bruce McGill, Édgar Ramírez, Zoe Saldana

Vantage Point Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

From my perspective, Sony has once again delivered a first-rate 1080p high definition transfer of a brand new release, this time with Vantage Point. The 2.40:1-framed image consistently proves to be a stunner that's exceptional in all the expected places. Color reproduction and fine detail manage to stand above the crowd. Colors abound throughout the movie, from the opening moments to the last. The red and yellow Spanish flags seen waving about, the various protest placards (including several anti-"W" signs that stick out like a sore thumb), the wide array of clothing worn by every character, and the beautiful earthy tones of the Spanish architecture all come together to form brilliant eye candy. Detail is remarkably consistent and reproduced at an extremely high level. Everything, from the bricks lining the streets of Spain, to the facades of the various buildings, to the rubble strewn on the ground after an explosion, to the fine lines and stitching as seen in various pieces of clothing, to the facial hair and fine lines and wrinkles of characters faces, and even to the visible wear on the magazine we see Barnes inserting into his P229 standard-issue Secret Service sidearm, appears with a sparkling realism that, combined with the frenetic pace and shooting style of the film, adds a wonderful authenticity to the Vantage Point experience. Even after the movie is over, I still find myself in awe of the wonderful detail of the architecture of the buildings seen in the film. Although the filmmakers had to substitute Mexico for Spain and the Plaza Mayor (I've been there!), the locations look great and translate well to high definition. I could watch this movie again for the set pieces alone. Long-distance detail is solid; the individuals in the crowd at the event cannot be clearly distinguished one from another due to distance, but for the length of the shots, what we see is perfect in its appearance. Flesh tones are accurate throughout, and black levels are solid but also appear as a shade of dark gray in a few scenes. Vantage Point is a stunner of a transfer that wouldn't be a bad choice to use as a video demonstration the next time you have friends come over to check out your Blu-ray home theater.


Vantage Point Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Vantage Point comes to Blu-ray with another high quality Dolby TrueHD 5.1 sound mix. As expected of a brand new release fresh out of theaters, this Blu-ray disc from Sony sounds marvelous. The film's first few minutes are marked by a few loud, sudden bursts of sound, including an explosion that rocks your home theater and puts the viewer firmly in the middle of the action. As the film repeats itself several times from varying "vantage points," these same noises represent one of the central "characters" of the film and the aural impact they create in the audience is one of the most important aspects of the film. Ambient noise and atmosphere is excellent. Outdoor shots of the summit feature incredibly lifelike crowd noise. Not only is the crowd's chanting, protesting, and applause placed in the rears (and the front speakers as well), but the sounds of flash bulbs, car doors slamming, and other niceties are spread throughout the sound system, so that the experience places you in the midst of the action. The effect is simply uncanny. The only real-life experience I have to compare it to is the feeling of being at a frenetic sporting event, and the feel is similar. The film's pulsating score, best exemplified by the chase music heard about 65 minutes into the movie, is room-filling and entertaining. Its fast techno-beat and pace is a perfect fit for the feel of the movie, one that is serious in story but not completely realistic in tone. Vantage Point's aural experience is rounded out by first-rate dialogue reproduction. This is one movie that definitely benefits from the Blu-ray treatment insofar as the movie looking and sounding more real and palpable as a result of the increased resolution and capacity of this high definition format.
