When you start out near the Syrian-Turkish border it is plain STUPID to have your dialog say that your characters are hunting the Taliban Who are far, far away in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Further, no twenty-something Marine sniper could be serving in Syria and plausibly describe being shot in the Congo in the middle-to-distant past. You don't touch the belly dancers in a cafe...and on and on with mindless dialog, ignorance of place and time. Sorry, there is an appetite for this stuff among the PURE YAHOO faction but it has to be better than this to keep from expelling me from the narrative.
All action movies stretch reality in hopes of entertaining, get that. So I suspend belief when I watch them. This movie however, went to far. It has got to be hands down the stupidest story I have ever been privy to. I actually turned it off twice before it was finished. The last time I decided to just not watch anymore of it. This was dumb. You would think after this man movies on one subject and character that perhaps a little more effort would be made to at least get the technical and tactical stuff right. That is not even touching on the rediculous command structure within the military units or personnel featured in the story. This was too stupid.

One in the long and ongoing list of Sniper franchise films. This b-movie franchise is of course formulaic, but if you enjoy these kinds of action films, and have a couple of hours to kill (pardon the pun), you may enjoy this one. It is certainly not terrible - it is what it is, and if you go in expecting a b-movie action film, this one is worth a rental. None have been as good as the original, but they can be a fun action flick for a lazy weekend kickback with your buddies.
Good movie in the "Sniper" series. Of the 5 movies incl. the original Sniper, then Sniper 2, Sniper 3, Sniper Reloaded, and this one, only Sniper 3 I didn't care for - the plot was way too "cheesy & campy" for me to get into it - but the rest of them were actually pretty good, assuming you like that sort of genre'. Worth the minor amount of $$ spent to add it to my library.

Good plot and acting was good. A sniper goes rogue and starts taking out team members who were all on the same mission but it was a trap and most of the team were killed. But, the remaining five are being hunted down by one sniper because he thought they were suppose to back him up and they didn't. So a soldier was sent to eliminate him and all over the European country he went to get the guy. It turns out he had help and the threat was larger. Good movie for action and adventure.
I thought this was really impressive especially for straight to DVD. Yea some of the dialogue was cheesy and the plot was a little thin. To me that makes this a throwback to 90s action movies which I LOVED. I thought that this movie was fun to watch and I liked that it didn't try to be something it wasn't. I also really loved that the female sniper played by Mercedes Mason (whom I love) wasn't there just for scenery. She wasn't a damsel in distress or a love interest. She was a seriously badass shooter. I realize it was a stretch to have a female scout sniper but I think that was the point. So yea, all in all I really liked the movie.

This was an entertaining movie and for me it would be worth watching again. Interestingly and timely (i.e. 2016) it included the movement of Middle Eastern refugees just as what is happening now. There were a couple of surprises and both good acting and drama. I have watched the other "Sniper" movies in this series and enjoyed them immensely.
A twist at the end of the movie is a fabulous move, The action is brilliant as the actors are marvellous, who would think of the ideas that I rated this an A grade plus and well worth it. The sniper series have always had a touch of class but this one is the best, a son of a former sniper takes on the job when informed he's father is dead, sound intriguing are you getting ready for this well he does his best and this assassin is taking out top officials right left and centre. Now there's a lot more to this that meets the eye and you will have to get up for the popcorn so why not this movie, No more clues as that spoils the show. Entertainment first class that will have you on your toes in minutes, so get everything ready for a fabulous night in with Sniper Legacy as this will have you glued to the chair from beginning to end and don't forget to press play on the remote if the movie doesn't start. Waste of time trying to relax as there is no time for that. Enjoy!
5.0 out of 5 starsBrilliant Sniper Movie! Love it!

I absolutely love Sniper: Legacy! Lots of action with a great cast. Chad Michael Collins performance as Sgt. Brandon Beckett is a must see. It's starts off in Sniper: Reloaded and carries on into Sniper: Legacy. You see how Beckett has developed in his skills as a sniper and you get more of an insight into the Father and Son relationship as Thomas Beckett springs into action to make sure that Brandon doesn't get killed by a Rogue gunman. It's an intense military thriller which you'll want to watch again and again.
