4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid action movie, 6 May 2011
This review is from: Sniper: Reloaded [Blu-ray] [2010] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
With a title like this you're not expecting the sort of movie that Guardianistas discuss over dinner but what you get is a good solid action movie. I have watched all of Tom Berenger's sniper movie and this does nothing to sully the memory. Chad Michael Collins plays Sgt Brandon Beckett the son of Tom Beckett the sniper. As he feels that sniping is a coward's way of warfare he has joined the marines and is stationed in the Congo with the UN. He is sent on a mission with some local troops to extract a Belgian plantation owner who is in danger but when they get there the whole team is taken out by a lone sniper and only he survives, albeit wounded. Escaping back over the border with the help of a local white hunter he is determined to avenge his unit so he sets off on his own to do so. Billy Zane reprises his role from the original franchise as a sniper instructor who flies out to help him.
Filmed on location in Africa this blu ray looks beautiful although the wildlife shots do get a little tedious and some of the shots from the end of the barrel as Beckett engages the enemy are a bit naff. The soundtrack is 'sound' but won't rock your system. Everyone gives a good performance and I can't say I noticed any particularly naff dialogue. There were no extras on my blu ray except some previews.
The only negative thing about this film was that it starts in the future at a court martial where Beckett is giving his account of what happened so you already know that he and one other significant character will survive.

Thanks for this review, it has encouraged me to buy this but could you tell me, is this blu-ray multi-region or region A only as its a US import? (don't know if you have a multi-region player)

Thanks

Simon.
