 I saw this last night at a midnight showing and liked it but didn't love it.  It tells the story of a terrorist attack on a peace summit in Spain from eight different perspectives.  The story is shown through the eyes of one character and then "rewinds" to start somewhere else with a different character.  So really, all the plotlines are happening at the same time. 

 It's a gimmick movie so if you go along with the gimmick, you'll probably like VP.  Dennis Quaid is good as are John Hurt, Matthew Fox, Forrest Whittaker, and Sigourney Weaver.  But I thought the best character was Edgar Ramirez's Javier, an ex-Special Forces soldier blackmailed into helping the terrorists.  This guy is badass as he takes on the Secret Service pretty much single-handedly.  With his roles in VP, Bourne Ultimatum and Domino, he's becoming one of the coolest actors around.

  Overall, not all the plot points are answered but I don't want to spoil the movie so I won't bring them up.  A lot is left undecided and unexplained so I can't give it too high a rating.  I say 6.5/10 overall.  Good, but not great. Afro

The trailer left me feeling as if I saw the film already. No need to watch this.
