U.S. president Ashton is in Salamanca, Spain to announce plans for a major global summit on terrorism. As he stands behind the podium in front of a loudly cheering crowd, he is shot twice. This is followed minutes later by a small explosion and then a massive blast. Secret Service agents Barnes, Taylor, and Holden immediately jump into action, trying to find the terrorists responsible amid all the chaos. First, the events are seen through the eyes of television news producer Rex Brooks. Then, the assassination attempt is replayed from seven different points of view. Each perspective reveals a few more clues

This movie was fairly original in its plot. Retelling the events of a few minutes multiple times, albeit from multiple perspectives, the viewer is often left on the edge of their seat as each character’s perspective unfolds and ends with a cliff-hanger. However, for much of the initial part of the movie, the repetition gives the movie a lackluster feeling as the same major events occur again and again. Nevertheless, this approach had its merits as it provides leeway for an unpredictable plot. Just when you think you’ve put the pieces together, you get a twist. Eventually, the climax of the movie culminates with the convergence of all the perspectives. Lastly, the plot is fairly one-dimensional in that it is very simple and free from any sub-plots. I would not recommend this movie to anyone seeking an original plot or a deep story.

Starts well, crashes stupidly. A bloated, kill-crazed mess laced with corn syrup.

One of my favourite Movies. Really recommend it to anyone's who's patient about seeing the same clips over and over again in different people's points of views.

Interesting story line. Took me awhile to get in but once the various "vantage points" were covered it got really interesting and had a nice twist to it.

An AMAZING action movie! Although the going back becomes a little repetitive and boring.
