Reviews of new films & DVDs

Told from several different viewpoints to keep us guessing, Vantage Point kicks off as a gripping suspense thriller but runs out of steam.

Directed by Pete Travis, the film focuses on eight strangers trying to figure out the truth behind an assassination attempt on the US President.

Vantage Point good viewing

Vantage Point looked in tip-top condition as he worked under restraint alongside stablemate Regal Ridge yesterday morning.

It may have been New Year's Day and the morning after, but for the SAR's dedicated jockeys, trainers and racing personnel, it was just another day at the office.

Newcomers show hope for the future

It was the newcomers who caught the eye in last night's second event and they should be followed now that they've had the benefit of racing experience.

Brave Star (60-1) and Winwin Combination (31-1) finished third and fourth respectively in the 1,200-metre Class Four event and both were making good ground over the concluding stages behind all-the-way winner Vantage Point.

Allan's Vantage Point catches eye

CHAMPION trainer Ivan Allan may have started the season in uncharacteristically quiet fashion but he produced an eye-catcher in yesterday's opening all-weather contest.

The modest Class Four, 1,150-metre dash went the way of the dirt-loving Jacqwin, but it was Allan's Vantage Point that had the pundits' tongues wagging.
