In the end, Bob Lee is double-crossed and framed for the attempt. Soon he becomes a fugitive trying to prove his innocence.
Naive cop Nick Memphis (Michael Peña) just "knows" Bob Lee's not responsible for the events. Even though he's on the verge of getting fired, he still wants to help Bob Lee as much as possible.
Together they will find the truth.
Wahlberg shows signs of good acting.
I felt that Danny Glover spoke like Daffy Duck, it was hard to understand him at times.
Peña is excellent as the naive police officer.
The shots with heads and arms flying all over are well made and impressive.
The script is believable. Bob Lee obviously has no respect for the government, and it is even more apparent when he realizes he's been set up. Even better, Bob Lee was trained to kill, but also how remove weapons from people's hands in order to survive.
An engaging, enjoyable movie with a lot of action.
fantastic in the title role.you won't be bored for a minute with this
film.but it's not just action.there's also some intrigue and
suspense.Antoine Fuqua(Training Day)directed this movie and Jonathan
Lemkin wrote the screenplay.he also wrote the story for Lethal Weapon
4.the movie is based on novel By Stephen Hunter called Point of
Impact.anyway,this movie is entertaining from the get go.there is some
graphic violence and coarse language,so if that's not your thing,you
might want avoid this movie.anyway,in my opinion,this movie is
entertaining from the get go.for me,Shooter is a 4.5/5
This week I am very much aware that what you think about a movie can depend on what else you have just seen. I saw "Shooter" on DVD the day after seeing "Live Free or Die Hard" in the theater. My favorite scene in the new summer blockbuster was the one early on when John McClane has to rescue a computer geek from a hit squad that is shooting apart the kid's apartment. It was, relatively speaking, one of the most realistic sequences in the film and with that thought fresh in my mind I liked that most of "Shooter" was in a similar vein. Of course, this is predicated on how realistic you consider kill shots from a mile out to be. I read somewhere that there was a sniper shot in Iraq that took out the target at three-quarters of a mile, so 1800 yards does not sound like all that much of a stretch to me and not that much to ask in terms of the willing suspension of disbelief.Read more ›
The SD-DVD's video transfer is a little soft and & lacked detail, where as the HD-DVD version offers noticeably improved picture quality. You can visibly see insects flying in the background during the 1st half of the movie when Mark Wahlberg is outside his mountain cabin, and faraway objects are no longer indistinguishable black dots.
One more excellent HD DVD movie to add to anybody's HD DVD library.
