I watched this film last night. To be honest I was expecting something pretty bad...something along the lines of The Marine (a mind numbingly stupid movie by the way). But having read some of the reviews here I was ready to give it a go - and I'm glad I did.

This film is not brilliant. It has flaws, the usual flaws that you get in many action movies - one dimensional characters that don't make a heck of a lot of sense, some plot holes that could be easily filled in. However these flaws are not so jarring - the main characters are okay and well acted and the plot holes can as I said be filled in rationally with some thought.

Having said that the storyline is fun. It is full of cliches but what modern action movie is cliché free? And it does put in some twists so the story is not entirely obvious. The action is well orchestrated and not simply blowing things up (unlike The Marine). There are elements of The Bourne Identity in fight scenes, and the sniping angle is done nicely (with heads exploding quite satisfyingly). You will have to suspend belief in a couple of the sniper shots (e.g. headshots from 200 yds out whilst standing in a small floating boat - with a .22!).

Additionally some of the secondary characters and their lines are amusing, I doubt this was intentional but sometimes cheese is good. When one lady picked up the phone and did a hair flick before answering I nearly choked on my cider.

No over the top idiot romance, or at least kept to a minimum, which is refreshing.

This film entertained me for its full 2 hours. I enjoyed it and would watch it again if a friend had rented it.

`Shooter' stars Mark Wahlberg as former military sniper, Bob Lee Swagger who has retreated to a cabin in Montana to try to forget his time in the Marines. Unexpectedly a group of government agents led by Colonel Isaac Johnson (Danny Glover) come visit Swagger and tell him that there is a sniper out there ready to kill the president and the Colonel wants to recruit Bob to give some professional advice of how it can be done by thinking as a sniper. Swagger agrees and soon finds himself pulled back into his old life of high powered, long range rifles. But things go awray and Swagger finds himself the most wanted man in the nation in a matter of minutes.

If you were to take the best parts of Tom Clancy's Patriot Games, Clear And Present Danger & Sum of All Fears and mixed in the best parts of the only good Rambo film you would end up with something akin to Shooter. It twists and turns with an elaborate conspiracy that is very convincing and it puts you into the shoes of a sniper and gives an impressive overview of the mindset that it takes to be as accurate as someone of the character of Swagger. Shooter is definitely one of the best action flicks I've seen in quite a while.

Another powerful film by Antoine Fuqua. The guy who made Training Day, Brooklin's finest and The Equalizer, shoots a film about a shooter. It's not easy to tell who's shooting better, but this is not just an action film. As usual with Fuqua, this is also a film of actors and characters, a film about a social and political context, a film about moral questions and a burning passion to fight and find out one's own place in the world. Walbergh is very good and the whole cast rock.

It's tat, yeah I know, but it's good tat. You know what I mean. One of those films that critics hate and that anybody with half a braincell snorts at and yet... It's just watchable! I know it's not the Bourne knockoff the producers were hoping for but someone here has done their research and so Wahlbergs humourless 'Rambo lite' ex. army patriot rings true and his meticulous way of behaving rings true. There's not much new here and there are no terriffic peformances but it's still fun and a fascinating watch.
I enjoyed this and shouldn't that be the defining emotion for a film? true it isn't Tarkovsky or Truffaut but sometimes you just want to kick back and say "bugger it, blow some stuff up & show me some flag waving nutter doing his stuff". Yup that just about say's it all for this as Wahlberg's man on a mission squaddie takes on the assassinating SOB's who try to frame him for a murder. The effects are good and Wahlberg is believable, lot's of explosions and close shaves mean this does exactly what it says on the tin.
If you cannot live without long exposition & mind bending symbolism then this isn't for you, but if you just want to switch off and enjoy the ride then welcome on board...
Picture is good and sound spot on. Extras? ZZZZzzzzzz. never mind, just put the film on again & pass me another beer will you?

Every now and then a movie comes along that is a 'bit different', it catches the imagination....snares your attention; SHOOTER is such a movie. From the word 'go', the Director right down to the man on the ground, from the actors to the camera crew...everything is well thought out and executed, this is a movie like no other I've seen before. Although I'm not usually one for guns and explosions, I have to say that in my opinion this movie has all the right ingredients, it has my vote right across the board - 10/10 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
