Since Mark Wahlberg is fast becoming one of our favorites, we decided to watch an older Walhberg movie last night on VUDU.
“Shooter” is a terrific thriller definitely worth the rent.
Wahlberg is an ex-Marine sniper extraordinaire. His last combat action ended badly as he lost his best friend and realized that the government was willing just to let him die. He was expendable.
Three years later, the government found him and asked him if he could help them foil a potential assassination plot against the President. His first instinct was to say no, but, upon further reflection he decided to take on the task.
He should have stuck with his first instinct.
“Shooter” is R rated, some f-words and bloody violence. Definitely not for kids. Fast paced, great action, great intrigue and plot twists and deceit. A great get-away-from-it-all movie with a very satisfying ending. Wahlberg is terrific and the supporting cast is awesome. Justice was served.
Drive Safe! Never Forget.
