3.0 out of 5 stars OK but not as good as Sniper 1 or 2, October 3, 2004
This review is from: Sniper 3 (DVD)
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.
