Overview

In this fast-paced military thriller, Tom Berenger is Thomas Beckett, a tough, grizzled, U.S. Marine Corps veteran sharpshooter who goes through target-spotter partners faster than bullets on his ultra-dangerous missions. The National Security Council secretly assigns Beckett to assassinate a Panamanian rebel bankrolled by a drug cartel in his bid for the presidency. The NSC also gives Beckett a sidekick: raw recruit Richard Miller Billy Zane, a former Olympic marksman who's never killed anybody. Miller technically outranks the more experienced Beckett, a source of friction between the men as they make their way through the jungle to find their prey. Once they locate their target, Beckett and Miller not only have to pull off a complex shooting but also must avoid a covert shooter who's been trained by Beckett and is now gunning for them. A Panama native, director Luis Llosa later repeated the trick of crafting a visually exciting genre film out of thin material with Anaconda 1997.

    Don't Mess with the Best

    Sniper, to me, is a great movie. Being a former active duty Marine, I can relate to the main character. As for the story line, ''It's hard to work with amatures'' about sums it up. Tom Berenger is one of the best, as seen in ''The Substitute'' and ''Last of the Dogmen''. So when it comes to this style of movie, Don't Mess With The Best''.

    One Shot, One Kill

    This was a great movie. I myself am a Tom Berenger fan. Although it wasn`t mentioned and its set in Panama instead of Vietnam, the movie was based on the book `Marine Sniper', the story of Gunnery Sergeant Carlos Hathcock. If you read the book and watch the movie, you`ll see the similarities.
