The original Sniper with Tom Berenger was a decent guy flick, and was a staple movie of my circle of friends during high school. So, meeting up with a friend of mine from highschool, we decided to check out the sequel. Sniper 2 finds Mr. Berenger reprising his role as Master Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Beckett.
Overall, the movie was pretty interesting, the plot far exceeding the latter Rambos. Beckett is losing his skills as a sniper and gets put out to pasture, but then is recalled for a special assignment in the Balkans.
Flavors of the betrayal and the Dirty Dozen are thrown in with the underground resistence and the usual sniper fare. The acting was varied, Berenger probably the most true to his hardass character. Berenger meets his extreme match with a professorial character hell-bent on passive resistence whom he has to rescue. The usual "justified killer" vs. "justified pacifist" banter ensues.
The ending duel was OK compared to the original, but the end acting was quite painful.
All in all, if you like Tom Berenger and/or the original Sniper, check this one out. You may like it or hate, but it's still a decent military movie.
