Storyline

The President of the United States is in Salamanca, Spain, about to address the city in a public square. We see a plain-clothes cop, his girlfriend with another man, a mother and child, an American tourist with a video camera, and a Secret Service agent newly returned from medical leave. Shots ring out and the President falls; a few minutes later, we hear a distant explosion, then a bomb goes off in the square. Those minutes are retold, several times, emphasizing different characters' actions. Gradually, we discover who's behind the plot. Is the Secret Service one step ahead, or have the President's adversaries thought of everything? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

waste of time
16 March 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie is awful. The plot is incredibly thin, and comes out as something that could have been thought up in an hour. The acting is not very convincing and it seems more like a quick pay check for some b grade celebs. The whole 8 stories one truth, worked out to be more like 2 episodes of 24, than different point of views, there is no background story or exploration of why all this is happening. It seems its just generally accepted that dark hued men wants to blow up Americans. So if you look away from all this and just want a quick bang for your buck then this movie is still not it. You get to see the same 10 minutes 5 times its really just one big failure of a movie
