Product Description

Sequel to the 1993 actioner. Sergeant Thomas Becker (Tom Berenger) teams up with death row inmate B.J. Cole (Bokeem Woodbine) on a suicide mission to the Balkans. Their target is a rogue general accused of running ethnic cleansing missions.

Synopsis

On one last mission, Thomas Beckett is sent into a remote, war-torn wasteland between Eastern Europe and Western Asia to assassinate a repressive terrorist leader. Once the mission is accomplished, Beckett and his spotter, Cole, find escaping more difficult than anticipated. In order to save their lives, Beckett and Cole must weave their way through burnt-out cities and desolate landscapes.

2.0 out of 5 stars The sequel to Sniper is way off target 5 Jun 2003
Format:DVD
This is a disappointing sequel. The central quality it lacks is authenticity and believability. The original film is far superior, with its intimidating rainforest setting and tense portrayal of the stress that snipers operate under. Many of the qualities of the original film, such as the demonstration of the snipers stealth and use of camouflage, seem to have been thrown aside in favour of a more conventional action film. The story sees a grumpy and disillusioned Becket coaxed out of retirement and partnered with a death-row inmate on a dangerous rescue and assassination mission in the Balkans.
In fact the 'Balkans' turn out to be Hungary and the subsequent story with its references to ethnic cleansing and Serbs and Muslims is hard to believe when the locals are spouting Magyar. Okay, so unless you know some Hungarian you are not going to notice. However, the plot was so confused and empty that this turned out to be the least of my criticisms. The actual point and logic of their mission completely eluded me, and once they were in 'The Balkans' the action was too disjointed and rushed for any memorable atmosphere or character development to be created. On the positive side Tom Berenger is good as the cynical and hard-bitten former US Marine, but unfortunately this film does not do him credit. As a standard action film it is not bad, however after watching the original film I expected much more from the sequel

1.0 out of 5 stars Insultingly dire! 14 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
Not only was this a dull film - but the fact that the "Serbs" in it spoke Hungarian got badly the wrong side of me. Oddly, they took some trouble over this. Part of the story is an ambush by police cars. "Police" is "Rend''őrség" [letter missing here - Amazon can't cope with Hungarian vowel signs!] in Hungarian, so they decided to put big "Policija" signs on the side of the police cars. Nobody was fooled, especially since the first shot of "Serbia" in the film was of a statue with "Szent Erzsébet" ("St Elizabeth" in Hungarian) written all the way across it. Cheap and cynical.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sniper 2 1 Oct 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The second in the Sniper series, this one fell a little short of the original film Sniper regarding tension and story. But, still enjoyable..
