A rogue assassin is taking out military leaders, and Brandon gets word that his father is one. He tries to track down the killer, finds out that his father isn't dead and realizes that his superior officers are using him as bait to track the killer.
Without tanks or air support, a corporal and his team must muster all the courage and firepower they can to fight their way across war-torn Afghanistan and shepherd an important anti-Taliban woman to safety.
Sniper Thomas Beckett (Tom Berenger) is hired by NSA officials, William Avery (Denis Arndt) and Richard Addis (William Duffy) to perform a covert operation to eliminate a suspected terrorist. The terrorist turns out to be a friend of Beckett's and the real purpose of the mission turns out to be something other than what Beckett was told.
Yet another bad movie that showcases Tom Berenger's awesome acting talents. I seriously feel so badly for this guy as he was one of the best film actors of the '90s, I mean this was the same guy who was in "Platoon" for crying out loud. He had some pretty classic bad-ass quotes in this as you can always usually expect at least one of them per film but sometimes you get blessed with a few. As average as this was it actually fared substantially well for a direct-to-video release since it was definitely well done in that regard. The action was okay, the best ones were when Beckett is behind the rifle though, as you probably could've guessed. I liked this but I still couldn't help but let out a silent prayer that TB gets one more big-budget movie deal before he's through with Hollywood because he's way too cool to let him slide into oblivion. Please think about it!
Movies: Didn't quite make it there did it.?
DVD Purchase: Only if you need to complete the trilogy.
Rental: Got my money's worth and that's what counts.
