Suspended over a deep gully of disbelief, where logic takes more bullets than the bad guys, Shooter still makes the grade as hard-ass action escapism. show more
The result is lots of gunplay and explosions governed by little logic. show more
Unravels a bit heading toward its finale, as buildings explode and characters are forced to explain themselves and their nefarious motives. But the payoff at the end - at once kind of radical and gratuitous - delivers a wallop. show more
Re-watched this movie and it was just as good as the first time i saw it.
The Shooter is completely engrossing and totally fun from beginning to end. Mark Whalberg stars as Bob Lee Swagger, a retired Marine sniper who after losing his best friend and spotter disappears from site, to live out his days alone in seclusion. ten years later he is approached by Colonel Issac Johnson who asks him to use his knowledge to stop an assassination attempt on the president. And that's where the story explodes into a take no prisoners thriller that will have your pulse racing. and your adrenaline pumping hard all the way to end. I very highly recommend this movie. I hope my review helps~ C.R. Lopez
