Shooter (2007)

Director: Antoine Fuqua
Mark Wahlberg – Bob Lee Swagger
Michael Peña – Nick Memphis
Danny Glover – Colonel Isaac Johnson

 Bob Lee Swagger, one of the world’s great marksmen and the son of a Congressional Medal of Honoree, is a loner living in the Rockies. He’s left the military, having been hung out to dry in a secret Ethiopian mission a few years before, when he’s recruited by a lisping colonel to help find a way that the President of the US might be assassinated in one of three cities in the next two weeks. He does his work, but the shot is fired notwithstanding and Bob Lee is quickly the fall guy: wounded and hunted by thousands, he goes to ground and, aided by two unlikely allies, searches for the truth and for those who double-crossed him. All roads lead back to Ethiopia.

Well it’s nota bad film, which I was kind of expecting.  A Mark Wahlberg veachle isn’t really the type of film I would normally sit down and watch.  But this wasn’t that bad.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a run of the mill action thriller with nothing to mae you go wow, but I think thats its aim.  A pretty smooth if uninspiring ride.  I have to add that I watched this on Blu-Ray in HD, which added to the experiance.
