Just when you forgot the first "Sniper" movie, you get a sequel starring the original star Tom Berenger. I don't say the first one is a masterpiece, but still engaging because of the minute descriptions of the military snipers and their jobs, helped by flashy camera works Instead of Billy Zane, you see Bookeem Woodbine, and beautiful Hungarian Erika Marozsan.
Tom Berenger's character Thomas Becket, now retired and 50 years-old, is lured back to the suicide mission to sneak into some unnamed Eastern Europe country, where a certain general is suspected leading a genocide plan. To stop this, he and a guy from a Death Row is sent there. With a help from "Sofia" they have to "remove" the target.
"Sniper 2" is shot in Hungary, and shows some decent action scenes. It tries to show some surprising twists in its rather simple plot; it also has the merit of Hungarian locales.
But the film is not good. Tom Berenger and other cast give us convincing acting, but the story is often confusing. The film goes back and forth between the two places -- American HQ and the European country -- and there is very little sense of suspence. This is simply because we do not know what the heroes of the film want to do after the inital mission, which itself is not credible or exciting at all. The "surprise" you see is just making the whole film worse, because we don't see the need of it.
I liked Erika Marozsan, who was stunning in little-seen film "Gloomy Sunday" and that's why I watched this film. Here she is wasted, and when she exits from the story, she just goes, without any emotional impact. She just leaves from the scene, as if going home for lunch. It is incredible, but she really wanted to go home, being tire on the set.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good & Bad (2.5 stars) July 11 2003
Format:DVD
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.

OK, maybe I'd give it 3 1/2 stars if I could. But "Sniper II" was really not bad at all. Yes, I had lowered expectations going in, (I'd read some lukewarm reviews), so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the film.
The first "Sniper" movie was also a good film -- more of a character study than an action story (in my opinion). This sequel took on some of that same flavor as well, though there was sufficient action in the movie to keep it from dragging.
Tom Berenger reprises the original character (Becker) well. Somewhat anti-social (shy, really), grumpy but with deep feelings, Becker is an interesting and complex character. In this sequel, Becker is older, wider around the middle, but he still is a fabulous marksman (despite an injury that put him out of the sniper business after the first film). And so after years of retirement, he's called into service once again, on a foolhardy and convoluted mission.
His interaction and relationship with the other man brought in on the mission is good -- like in the first movie, he often calls this younger man "son" as he argues and bickers (and looks out) for him. I thought Becker's character was consistent in both films, and I liked this. I liked Becker, and it was nice to see him yet again.
However, just like in the first film, there was a somewhat anti-climatic ending, (left me thinking, "That's the end?") but it was still adequate enough. I cared about all the characters, but a few left the story too soon, and I felt cheated because I didn't get to know more about them.
So, in my estimation, I saw this film as similar to the first: An older and wiser sniper is paired up with a younger (but this time, *very* able) partner, on a dangerous mission in a faraway land.

3.0 out of 5 stars Equal to Sniper 1 but lacking in DVD features March 16 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Rating for the movie itself: 4 stars.
I did not know what to expect from this sequel but to my pleasant surprise it was just as good as the original. Tom Berenger reprises his role as Sergeant Beckett who gets called into duty by the CIA to take out a renegade general / Prime Minister in Bosnia who's responsible for the ethnic cleansing of many natives. Sergeant Beckett must team up with an accomplished sniper from death-row. Together they seek to accomplish their mission in hostile territory while escaping enemy soldiers and snipers alike. Sniper 2 is a combination of the movies "Behind Enemy Lines" and "Enemy at the Gates."
The acting was really good, even though most of the supporting actors are unknown. This movie also had a good story as well. The second half of the movie dragged on a little bit -- it seemed a little bit talky but the action sequences were well-done. Usually sequels are inferior to the original. I was glad that this sequel was equal to Sniper 1. I recommend this movie for action and war movie buffs alike. If you liked Sniper 1, you would not be disappointed with this one.
Rating for the DVD features: 2 stars.
It is disappointing that this DVD does not offer much at all in the way of special features. It would have been great to have a "Behind-the-Scenes" featurette or some deleted scenes but it has none of that. This DVD seems a bit expensive for not having more special features added to it.
I would rate the movie as 4 stars but the DVD features as 2.

Ok lets take the movie at face value shall we. It's fictional and not a movie made for the theaters. With that in mind, it brings things into perspective a bit. Read more
