Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Shooter is an honorable rather than exceptional addition to the canon.
Rotten: Despite gripping chase sequences and a few awe-inspiring fiery explosions, gaping holes in the convoluted plot make Shooter heavier on style than substance.
Rotten: The engaging, fast-talking idiosyncrasy of [Wahlberg's] performance in The Departed has vanished.
Fresh: This is the first big-studio action picture (the director is Antoine Fuqua) with some of the disgusted, bloody nihilism of the post-Vietnam era.
Excellent Action Movie!
Mark Wahlberg kicking butt old-school...what's not to like?? Wahlberg plays an ex-Marine Corps sniper. He's one of the best shots in the world. After being set up & framed for something he didn't do, he seeks vengeance, both to clear his name and to right all the wrongs. Any loopholes that would allow criminals to walk free, he closes. Michael Pena does a good job as a green FBI agent who gets caught up in the action. Danny Glover is excellent here too. Just a great action movie!
i loved this movie... its full of action and keeps you on the edge of your seat .. awsome movie.. its a must buy
Great action - light on politics
Marky-Mark stars in this movie as a soldier betrayed by his country, mixed up in a plot to assassinate the president of the United States. The movie packs thrills and is - thankfully- light on politics, although the ending might make a few people cringe. Don't buy it just yet - wait until next week and rent it from iTunes.
