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.

This time around Thomas Beckett is sent out by NSA to track down and kill a druglord in Vietnam who happens to be his good friend whom he fought alongside in the war. Beckett is in for surprises as he finds out more details about his mission and about the reasons why he is sent there. He also partners with a local cop in Ho Chi Minh City, who is trained in martial arts.

Like Sniper 2, this movie looks low budget and features unknown actors, whose acting are just adequate (except the Vietnamese cop, who did a good job). Tom Berenger, however, is always good and makes up for the bad acting done by some of the others.

There are some things in this movie that are different:

a) It reveals more about Beckett's personal life than the other two films (e.g. his past, his friendships, his emotional side, etc.)

b) Some of the action is influenced by the Hong Kong action style, with the shoot-outs done in slow motion, and Beckett's partner getting to use his martial arts expertise to eliminate some of the bad guys.

c) Tom Berenger has gained a few more pounds since Sniper 2 and he seems to lumber rather than run. (He needs to shed some weight in order to be believable as a Marine Sniper.) However, to the script's credit, Beckett gets in trouble with his superior for his drinking and his lack of physical fitness.

I gave this movie 3 stars because it could have been a lot better, given a bigger budget, better story, well-known actors and accomplished directors that we recognize. Even so, there are worse ways to spend an evening.

Unfortunately, the DVD itself does not contain any special features.

Unfortunately, unlike the original film "Sniper", along with "Sniper 2", and "Sniper Reloaded" (which were at least somewhat believable or plausible in "the real world"), this one really should never have been made. Tom Berenger's character (Thomas Beckett) was far too out of shape, and most of all, the overall movie plot ranged from silly to outright stupid - especially at the end when these "Vietnamese child killers" bowed down to Beckett as their "new God" after Beckett killed his best friend who had gone rogue. OH PULLLEEEEEEESE........!! This movie was stupid to the core. Like the others, it started out innocently enough - but very quickly "morphed" into something of a "You've gotta be s _ _ _ ting me" type of film! TOTALLY unbelievable, and a total waste of film and production costs, in my opinion. I can't believe Berenger actually stooped so low to make this movie - much like Louis Gossett, Jr. stooping to make "Iron Eagle" and its ridiculous & subsequent sequels. Oh well...

....in the "Sniper' series.
It tells how an aging Marine Corps sniper tries to cope with
aging, losing certain motor skills, and losing a friend- AGAIN.
Not as good (I think) as Sniper 1 (Jungles of Central America),
or Sniper 2 (another kind of Jungle), at least it shows how
lonely the Life of A Sniper can be- especially as one grows OLD.
Tom Berenger is superb, though, as ALWAYS.

First off - the crass language. [Were they trying to make this movie trashy?] Certainly not intensely masculine!

Beckett is back - [not with the honed body we would have like to see] but still a strong masculine charisma.

Yup! being done dirt to by his superiors? They want him dead too! That would eliminate all their loose ends.

I was waiting to hear that he had gone back and eliminated them.

I did get what I was waiting for though. A shot that seems impossible to make. Doing what seems impossible is what we look for in our Super Heroes and especially our Snipers.

Come on you guys. What is with you that you cheapen our good movies [almost good] with barnyard language.

I really get disgusted with woman [and men for that matter] with vulgar mouths. I blame this on the writers and directors who seem to have illiterate minds.

Vulgarity is not a sign of masculine charisma - just low-bred mongrels.

I enjoyed Beckett - I ignored the crass language - and I love the shot! For Mature audiences only.
