4.0 out of 5 stars OK addition to the series about sniper Thomas Beckett, November 4, 2004
This review is from: Sniper 3 (DVD)
This third story about Master Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Beckett fits in well with the other two because it draws atmosphere and story detail from both without becoming a clone. I liked the personal history bits about Beckett - we know very little about him as an individual but now we at least learn a few very interesting facets of his life. In the short scene in which he looked at his box of "memories", I recalled a scene in Sniper (1) where he was asked why he carried several sets of dogtags around and his reply - "respect". If you are a Berenger fan, and especially if you have seen Sniper 1 and 2, you will like this DVD. His Asian co-star was very good, especially in all the scenes shot about the slimey underbelly of Ho Chi Minh City. The action was less in this movie, but the story, direction and locales were well done and chosen. I was a bit sorry to see Tom has put on a few unneeded pounds, but, as the progression of the series warrants, he cannot look and act as he did in the early years - that would be a mistake! I hope you at least rent this DVD and do not miss out on a worthy episode about the life of Tom Beckett, the now reluctant Sniper. If you give the story a bit of thought, you'll see the psychological points shown about how Beckett is forever drawn into the former occupation which brought him acclaim and from which he cannot now withdraw.
