Just Saw the Trailer

Forest Whitaker, Dennis Quaid, William Hurt, and Matthew Fox star in director Pete Travis' Roshomon-style thriller in which an assassination attempt on the President of the United States is detailed from five unique perspectives. As the president arrives in Madrid, gunshots ring out. An American tourist (Whitacker) has captured footage of the would-be assassin on videotape, and now as the stories of the other four witnesses unfold each essential piece of the puzzle quickly falls into place. Only when all of the stories are told will the chilling truth to this shocking crime finally emerge.
Looks good

Why exactly did they have to give away one of the major plot twists in the trailer?

Every time I read that movie title it looks like 'Vanishing Point' for just a second.
Sounds ok, though. I'll definitely see it

Yeah, it's worth seeing. Not award winning, but an interesting story-telling line. The constant rewinds are at first annoying as a transition effect.

I do like the characters that get developed and their history is a lot which they cram in to the time frame...

I would give it a 7 out of 10.

Typical murder/mystery story and a cool way of telling it.

I liked the concept of the movie, it was an interesting concept.

Aside from the fact that the trailers gave away one of the major plots in the movie, it was worth it.
