Storyline

The Ambassador of Cuba was killed in New York. To prevent another attack of the terrorists at the US-Cuba-summit in Prague the CIA sends one of their best federal agents, Michael Dane (Dolph Lundgren). The suspected killer Nikita is a lesbian club owner, Simone Rosset. But as usual everything is much more complicated than it seemed at first; and therefore Dane has to work much more with his brain than with his muscles to survive. Written by Volker Boehm

Trivia

US distributor Miramax removed 15 minutes for the film's stateside direct-to-video release through their Dimension Films division. A lot of character-development scenes were cut to make the film more action-orientated. During the end credits, the studio also removed composer Stefano Mainetti's excellent score and replaced it with the dance/house song from the night club scene. See more »

Forgettable and boring political thriller
28 December 2014 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

„The Shooter" (also known as „Hidden assassin") is a boring , unsurprising and unexciting thriller. The major twist is obvious after few minutes and the rest of the story is predictable and boring. "The Shooter" tries to intrigue people with political commentary about the relationships between the U.S. and the Czech Republic, but fails miserably. There is some action here – car chases , fights and shootouts but it's all completely flat and joyless. It's hard to believe that this movie was directed by Ted Kotcheff – the same guy who did so well with "Rambo first blood". There is some suspense here and there , but it's simply not enough.

The Prague looks nice and John Ashton ("Beverly hills cop") is OK as Lundgren's buddy. Lundgren tries hard , but the screenplay doesn't really give him too much to work with. There is also some nudity , but not on the level of "Basic instinct" to make this movie interesting.

A headache. I give it 1/10.
