    The result is lots of gunplay and explosions governed by little logic.

    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

    If the movie only lavished as much thought and care on its characters as it does on each intricate set piece, Shooter might have been a classic. show more
