Product Description

Amazon.ca

Tom Berenger and Billy Zane head the cast in this silly action film about a tough Marine and an Olympics marksman who team up in the Panamanian jungle to take out a rebel leader and the drug kingpin financing him. Berenger's done this switched-off soul bit before, but Zane doesn't seem quite ready for his part. In any case, the acting doesn't matter as much to director Luis Llosa as fancy camerawork to give viewers the sense of a bullet hurling along its trajectory. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile and interesting. Dec 25 2002
Format:DVD
Since I did not expect an action-packed on-your-the-edge-of-your seat film, I was not disappointed with this movie.
I saw it as basically a character study, between an older, more experienced man (Tom Berenger), and a younger, inexperienced and proud man (Billy Zane). They are foisted together on a jungle mission, and while Zane's character is *supposed* to be the superior officer, he soon learns that he is out of his element. Berenger's character calls him "son" as he leads him through the jungle, being simultaniously irritated yet supportive over Zane's inexperience.
I found myself caring about these characters, and appreciating the contrast between them. While this film had flaws (the ending, while adequate, lacked a little "punch"), I still enjoyed the movie overall. The performances of both actors was good -- particularly Berenger, who does the "steely emotionless" thing quite well. Zane was also good at looking a little queazy and out of his element.
I found this movie to be a worthwhile viewing experience. I hear that "Sniper 2" has been filmed (Berenger reprising his role), so I am interested in seeing what Berenger's character is up to now.

This not completely unpleasant diversion could have been a landmark film - if - it had been instead overtly made as the story of its OBVIOUS inspiration, Gunnery Sergeant Carlos Norman Hathcock II. Berenger delivers, but the script lets him down. Those knowledgable of Gunny Hathcock will immediately recognize the film's fictional retelling of actual events: the killing of the enemy sniper with a shot through his scope, the 4-day stalk across 2,000 yards of open country, the "Apache Woman" - all are represented in this film. The film that could have been, and I wish would have been, is the story of Gunny Hathcock. "Marine Sniper: 93 Confirmed Kills" by Charles Henderson is available right here on Amazon.com. Read the Henderson book, then watch the Berenger film, and you will KNOW Hathcock was the inspiration. Sadly, even unjustly, the film neither mentions nor credits Gunny Hathcock. (Also available at Amazon.com is Henderson's second work about Hathcock, "Silent Warrior : The Marine Sniper's Vietnam Story Continues.")
As the film stands, it is "okay." But it could have been so much more.

4.0 out of 5 stars HOLLYWOOD MEETS THE MILITARY SNIPER Aug. 25 1999
By R. COOK
Format:DVD
I AM A RETIRED ARMY SNIPER SERVING TWO TOURS IN VIETNAM. WHEN THIS MOVIE CAME OUT I WAS CURIOUS AS TO WHAT WOULD BE DEPICTED ON FILM. SOME OF THE MOVIE WAS FAIRLY ACCURATE WHILE OTHER PARTS WERE PURE HOLLYWOOD NONSENSE. I THINK THE SELECTION OF TOM BERENGER WAS RIGHT-0N FOR THE PART OF BECKETT WHILE BILLY ZANE LEFT ALOT TO BE DESIRED. I WISH THE MOVIE HAD GONE MORE INTO THE TECHNICAL ASPECTS OF THE SNIPER TRADE SUCH AS ALLOWING FOR WIND, HEAT MIRAGES, AND MOVING TARGETS, ALONG WITH
THE ADJUSTMENT OF THE TARGET KNOBS ON THE SCOPE AS MANY PEOPLE SITTING IN THE THEATER DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT EXACTLY WAS GOING ON AT TIMES. I THOUGHT THE FIRST KILL IN THE MOVIE WHERE BECKETT SHOOTS CABRERO WHILE HIS SPOTTER GIVES HIM DIRECTION AND RANGE WAS PROBABLY THE MOST ACCURATE OF ALL THE SCENES IN THIS MOVIE. WHAT THEY ONLY TOUCH UPON IN THE MOVIE IS THE TERRIBLE FEEL YOU GET FROM THE FIRST TIME YOU TAKE A HUMAN BEINGS LIFE. SNIPER WORK IS SHOOTING PEOPLE WHEN THEY LEAST SUSPECT IT OR ARE NOT AT A COMBAT READY POSITION. WE WERE TAUGHT NOT TO LOOK AT THE EYES FOR THEY BURN INTO YOUR SOUL. HOWEVER A SNIPER WILL SAVE MANY MORE FRIENDLY LIVES THAN HE WILL EVER TAKE BECAUSE OF HIS DEADLINESS ON THE BATTLEFIELD. I ENCOURAGE ANY YOUNG MAN THINKING ABOUT JOINING THE MILITARY SNIPER RANKS TO ENLIST WITH THE ARMY OR USMC AND WORK HIS WAY INTO THE SNIPER COURSES THERE.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tom Berenger is great. June 3 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I really like Tom Berenger a lot. He's great at playing hard-assed characters, if you liked him in PLATOON, you'll love him in this movie. He is much better than anyone else at acting military characters, much better than stallone or kurt russell, but he can also act something different than some semper-fi marine,like in GETTYSBURG,whe he acted Gen. Longstreet. my four stars really only go to him though, and the guy who did the research (as the sniping details were pretty acurate). Billy Zane should just stick to titanic though, I couldn't figure out whether he was a good guy who didn't know what he was doing(and who lost it at the end),or whether he was a jerk-off pentagon politician who didn't care about anything except his next promtion. The directing was bad, exceptfor the slow moving bullet, and the story was pretty dumb too. But if your tired of phony body builders acting warriors, this is a great movie.Definitely worth $9.

2.0 out of 5 stars annoying Feb. 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I usually enjoy a Tom Berenger movie but was disappointed with this one. Tom Berenger (jungle dude and sniper) and the other guy (a government twit sent along to pester Tom and cause all sorts of trouble, kind of like an armed George Stephanopolous) are sent to Panama to 'take out' a bad guy. The problem is Miller (government guy) doesn't seem to know much of anything and refuses to listen to someone who does (Berenger). After a while, this became annoying and I kept waiting for Tom to whack him over the head with something. Unfortunately, he never does. In a scene where they are sneaking through a barnyard, I was waiting for Miller to step on a chicken when he was walking backwards-SQUAWK!! Neat parts of the movie are when Tom Berenger disguises himself as a haystack and watching the Panamanian militia run through the jungle like a bunch of squirrels. I gave this movie 2 stars because you get to watch Tom Berenger.

Who can say that this movie is bad? I read a review that it was boring, and no plot. All they did was wonder through a jungle, and one snaps and starts trying to kill the other. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstand and accurate military flick.
A facinating tale of a mission comprised of two snipers, a hardened veteran of the Jungles and a cocky , somewhat cynical young man who is out of his element in the jungle. Read more
