Goofs

During the firefight with the black clad "ninja" assault team, one of the "ninjas" is shown to have an M203 grenade launcher attached to his M16. When he fires it at the running Cole he fires three times in a span of about 5 seconds. This should not have been possible, as the M203 is not a semi-automatic weapon. It is a single shot grenade launcher with a rate of fire of about 5-7 rounds per minute (about one shot every ten seconds). See more »

Perfectly adequate sequel
1 April 2003 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I liked the first "Sniper" movie and especially liked Becker (played by Tom Berenger). He's a solemn and sometimes grumpy sniper who bickers and argues (but also looks after) anyone he's partnered with on a mission. I saw the original film as more of a `character study' of this solitary Becker character, and was not disappointed that the sequel was mostly a character study as well. Though of course there is plenty of action and suspense as well!

"Sniper 2" re-works the same formula as the first film, but with some differences. Becker is a little older, but he's still grumpy (but protective) as ever. The guy he's partnered up with in this film is different than the somewhat green and annoying Billy Zane character in the first film. I liked this new guy pretty well.

And I liked seeing Becker again. I'd grown fond of Becker in the first film, and I thought the sequel held up well. Sure, it could have been better, but really, it was not bad at all. It's a solid film--not earth-shatteringly great, but if you enjoyed the way the first movie went, and especially enjoyed the characters, then you'll like this film.
