Product Description

Amazon.ca

It's no surprise that the 1993 Tom Berenger actioner Sniper spawned a franchise of sorts based on its successful formula of a lone wolf military marksman who plays by his own rules and always gets his man. Berenger appeared in two direct-to-video sequels in 2002 and 2004, returning to his role as Marine Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Beckett, the solitary crack shot who traveled to far-flung global hot spots to aim his never-miss cross hairs at bad guys of various repute. The surprise about Sniper: Reloaded is not so much that it comes 18 years later or that the now paunchy, white-haired Berenger (see: Inception) is absent from the movie, but that this home-video exclusive plays as such a brisk and efficient stand-alone mercenary action feature. Not-so-notable TV hunk Chad Michael Collins plays Brandon Beckett, the estranged son of Berenger's character, as a marine grunt loaned out to a UN peacekeeping unit in the Congo. The nature of the father/son relationship is glossed over, even though it's clear that Brandon is his own man and has no aspirations to be a sharpshooter hero like his dad. But on a mission to escort a European landowner to safety, a mysterious sniper who is clearly cut from the same cloth as Beckett Sr. massacres the homesteader, Brandon's squad of marines, and the accompanying Congolese soldiers, gravely injuring Brandon in the process. Enter Billy Zane, if only briefly, reprising his original Sniper role as Berenger's protégé, Richard Miller. He is now a paternal figure on the scene to snap Brandon into shape in his father's image when Brandon goes AWOL on a mission of personal vengeance against the mystery sniper. The war-torn atmosphere and action set pieces are very well executed, with a minimum of exposition and plot details slowing things down. There are plenty of bloody "oh, yeah!" kill-shot close-ups as seen through spotting scopes against the African backdrops, and Brandon even squeezes in some sexy bedroom action with a blonde Australian army lieutenant. Though the production design is not necessarily lavish, the authenticity and ambiance is strong enough to give Sniper: Reloaded a healthy shot at DVD shelf life on its own terms. --Ted Fry

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a surprise May 2 2011
By F. Werner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
A fifth remake in the series and a direct to video besides. This is a typical men at war in the jungle movie with very little star power. Forget about the junk that preceded it. This movie has great production values. The story is very good. The actors and script are great. And the african animal scenes and views of Africa need to be seen in Blu-ray to be fully appreciated. There are so many movies like this, but so few that rise above the mundane to truly entertain. See this movie. You may even want to own it.

5.0 out of 5 stars SO MUCH FUN! May 29 2011
By MESSYTESSIE - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Wow that was way better than I thought it would be! To be honest, I was forced to watch this movie with my boyfriend who's in the military. He was blown away by the gritty realism and the authenticity. Marine's,like, freak out if they don't feel they are represented correctly. As for me, I liked the story and the scenery (there were some beautiful shots of the African landscape. )COuld've done without the RAUNCHY SEX SCENE THOUGH GEEEZ!! It wasn't all guns and one-liners. Plus the lead is fuggin GORGEOUS and did a good job acting. Are his lips real though? hmmmm...

4.0 out of 5 stars I SEE YOU May 20 2011
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
That was the line spoken by Billy Zane prior to blowing off the head of a UN Congo soldier with a 50 caliber (?) bullet. I must say the special effects on the blood and bullets were good. The plot is another story. It made me go to Google. First off there is no United Nations code of Military Justice, nor is there a United Nation Military Code of Criminal Justice. In fact it is just the opposite. There is no military code of conduct in the UN which has caused problems in recent times and the UN is in the early stages of looking into such a code. The movie attempts to make a statement about strong patriotic military men vs. weak politicians who play both sides of the coin.

Chad Michael Collins plays "son of sniper" (I don't recall seeing the other movies) in this weak plot, no character developing saga of UN gone awry in the Congo. Billy Zane had the best lines in the whole movie, unfortunately he wasn't in the movie enough to make it work. One sex scene, no nudity, don't recall any f-bombs. Collins as an actor was about a C- if Zane is an "A". If you have a choice between this and a Steven Seagal or Steve Austin movie, choose this one. 3 stars plus a half star for the guy's head getting blown off.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible compared to the first June 17 2011
By Lana J. Swanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
What a terrible movie! Nothing like the first, this isn't a sniper movie this is practically urban combat in Africa. The jr Beckett doesn't do any sniping with the exception of 2 or 3 shots. Aside from the terrible portrayal of U.S. Marines...(the recent movies about Iraq do a hell of a better job of depicting us than this one does!), this movie could have done alot better. What a typical 21st century movie- can't ever go without with sex scene...could have definitely left that out. About the only good part was one of the guy's heads getting blown off. Glad I didn't buy this movie and watched it online instead. Watch the Battle for Haditha - that's a hell of a movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it April 3 2013

This movie was not as good as sniper but there was somewhat of a expectation of it to be as good or better. Gave me the impression budget was a lot lower on this one.
