Product Description

While working with the UN Forces in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Marine Sgt. Brandon Beckett (Chad Michael Collins), son of renowned sniper Thomas Beckett, receives orders to rescue a European farmer trapped in the middle of hostile rebel territory. When he and his men arrive at the farm, a mysterious sniper ambushes them, wounding Beckett and killing everyone else. With the help of his father’s former protégé, sniper instructor Richard Miller (Billy Zane), Beckett must learn to think like a sniper to track down the assassin before the sniper returns to finish the job.

It's no surprise that the 1993 Tom Berenger actioner Sniper spawned a franchise of sorts based on its successful formula of a lone wolf military marksman who plays by his own rules and always gets his man. Berenger appeared in two direct-to-video sequels in 2002 and 2004, returning to his role as Marine Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Beckett, the solitary crack shot who traveled to far-flung global hot spots to aim his never-miss cross hairs at bad guys of various repute. The surprise about Sniper: Reloaded is not so much that it comes 18 years later or that the now paunchy, white-haired Berenger (see: Inception) is absent from the movie, but that this home-video exclusive plays as such a brisk and efficient stand-alone mercenary action feature. Not-so-notable TV hunk Chad Michael Collins plays Brandon Beckett, the estranged son of Berenger's character, as a marine grunt loaned out to a UN peacekeeping unit in the Congo. The nature of the father/son relationship is glossed over, even though it's clear that Brandon is his own man and has no aspirations to be a sharpshooter hero like his dad. But on a mission to escort a European landowner to safety, a mysterious sniper who is clearly cut from the same cloth as Beckett Sr. massacres the homesteader, Brandon's squad of marines, and the accompanying Congolese soldiers, gravely injuring Brandon in the process. Enter Billy Zane, if only briefly, reprising his original Sniper role as Berenger's protégé, Richard Miller. He is now a paternal figure on the scene to snap Brandon into shape in his father's image when Brandon goes AWOL on a mission of personal vengeance against the mystery sniper. The war-torn atmosphere and action set pieces are very well executed, with a minimum of exposition and plot details slowing things down. There are plenty of bloody "oh, yeah!" kill-shot close-ups as seen through spotting scopes against the African backdrops, and Brandon even squeezes in some sexy bedroom action with a blonde Australian army lieutenant. Though the production design is not necessarily lavish, the authenticity and ambiance is strong enough to give Sniper: Reloaded a healthy shot at DVD shelf life on its own terms. --Ted Fry

A fifth remake in the series and a direct to video besides. This is a typical men at war in the jungle movie with very little star power. Forget about the junk that preceded it. This movie has great production values. The story is very good. The actors and script are great. And the african animal scenes and views of Africa need to be seen in Blu-ray to be fully appreciated. There are so many movies like this, but so few that rise above the mundane to truly entertain. See this movie. You may even want to own it.

Wow that was way better than I thought it would be! To be honest, I was forced to watch this movie with my boyfriend who's in the military. He was blown away by the gritty realism and the authenticity. Marine's,like, freak out if they don't feel they are represented correctly. As for me, I liked the story and the scenery (there were some beautiful shots of the African landscape. )COuld've done without the RAUNCHY SEX SCENE THOUGH GEEEZ!! It wasn't all guns and one-liners. Plus the lead is fuggin GORGEOUS and did a good job acting. Are his lips real though? hmmmm...

EXCELLENT movie! I gotta tell you all, I was extremely skeptical about this "3rd sequel" to the original "Sniper" film with Tom Berenger (the "senior" Becket). I've ordered "Sniper 2" & "Sniper 3" (not having seen them yet), so when "Sniper: Reloaded" came in first, I figured "What the heck - let's watch this thing & get it over with...!" Boy was I surprised! The action was 1st rate, the "attention to details" when producing sniper performances was about as close to the real thing as I've ever seen, and all the actors (& actress) performed their roles quite well. The only real "downside", if you will, was the usual "gratuitous sex" scene thrown into the middle of the film, a scene in which the movie would've actually been better off had it been left out entirely - that said, it was a relatively minor scene & the rest of the movie more than made up for this little bit of "cinema indiscretion"... As such, I'm going to actually rate it "5-stars". Billy Zane has a continuous "running back-up role" (Richard Miller, Tom Berenger's "partner" in the first "Sniper" movie). He doesn't look much like he did in the first movie - in fact he looks different enough with his beard & what not that I had a hard time realizing it was, in fact, Billy Zane from the 1st film. But he did an excellent job. In many ways, this movie was just as good as the original was - and that's saying a LOT for a "sequel #3"...!! Well worth the cost!

Was the best in my book. In this movie it is actually Tom berringer's son as the lead sniper, his name is Brandon Beckett, the movie takes place in Europe . Billy Zane reformism sniper 1 is in this sniper version, I I thought he was a punk in sniper 1 and Tom should have left him in the jungle.

Yeah, I still miss Berenger. At least Billy Zane was there to round things out.

Maybe it's the years, or maybe they're making them intentionally more confusing, but I had a hard time putting a finger on the plot line for this one.

The filming was pretty and the action was, you know, active, but I kept getting lost on the way from point A to point B.

Once it was finally over, of course, the plot was evident.

If you like this genre, then it's a go. Otherwise, it isn't very straight forward.

This is an attempt to reboot the Sniper series and it is worth it. It reminds me of the WWE "Behind Enemy Lines" series, which typically has a group of soldiers fighting impossible odds to complete their mission. If you enjoy that kind of action (and I do), then check this movie out.

We have all of the Sniper movies. This one was a little disappointing compared to the previous 3 and the following one Sniper Legacy. Reloaded seemed to be produced with a reduced budget. Billy Zane, however, always gives a good performance.

That was the line spoken by Billy Zane prior to blowing off the head of a UN Congo soldier with a 50 caliber (?) bullet. I must say the special effects on the blood and bullets were good. The plot is another story. It made me go to Google. First off there is no United Nations code of Military Justice, nor is there a United Nation Military Code of Criminal Justice. In fact it is just the opposite. There is no military code of conduct in the UN which has caused problems in recent times and the UN is in the early stages of looking into such a code. The movie attempts to make a statement about strong patriotic military men vs. weak politicians who play both sides of the coin.

Chad Michael Collins plays "son of sniper" (I don't recall seeing the other movies) in this weak plot, no character developing saga of UN gone awry in the Congo. Billy Zane had the best lines in the whole movie, unfortunately he wasn't in the movie enough to make it work. One sex scene, no nudity, don't recall any f-bombs. Collins as an actor was about a C- if Zane is an "A". If you have a choice between this and a Steven Seagal or Steve Austin movie, choose this one. 3 stars plus a half star for the guy's head getting blown off.
