Storyline

After his daughter died of cancer, former French foreign legionnaire "Straight Shooter" alias Volker Bretz threatens those who financed, built, favoured and now work the nuclear power plant Atar II to kill one of them each day until the plant is shut down. His former drill sergeant, Frank Hector, who now owns several night clubs and brothels, is the only one who might be able to stop the maniac killing specialist. Frank is flown in instantly, but soon has to find out that his former comrade's actions might be a result from an event long ago. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

The German Rambo...
21 April 1999 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

STRAIGHT SHOOTER is a straight forward movie in a way, we all have seen in the German TATORT TV-series before. Director Thomas Bohn did well and tried to get a deeper inside view of a human killer (the Straight Shooter - Dennis Hopper as Frank Hector gave him this name but I still don't know why, did I miss a line?). Dennis Hopper is minimized to a very cool character (sorry for him) and Heino Ferch as Shooter could become a real German Bruce Willis

  • he should just have spoken a bit more! Thanx to Producer Joseph


Vilsmaier for getting away from stupid German comedies and at least try to make a straight forward German thriller!
