Trivia

An entire dialog sequence was lifted directly from Fred Olen Ray's Active Stealth (1999) when the film came in under time. See more »

Goofs

In the opening sequence a fighter pilot acknowledges cleared for takeoff, presses a toggle on the dash, and we see a gauge spinning up past "1.5" followed by a tail view of the jet taxiing out. However the gauge we saw was clearly marked "MACH", and going MACH 1.5 while taxiing on the ground in a jet fighter is a bit difficult. See more »

Not so Bad
2 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you're a gamer, especially a Tom Clancy video game fan, this movie is for you. You cannot help but to think of the Tom Clancy Games Such as Ghost Recon, Ranbow Six Three and Splinter Cell. The plot of this movie is about a Ukranian Madman attempting to obtain nuclear weapons in order to restore the former Soviet Union and after the Russian Government has failed to do anything about it, it's up to the American special forces to rescue American hostages and restore peace and safety, and only one man, the Painter, can do the job... It is as if it was written with these games in mind. The plot, the characters are all from these games.

About snipes, It seems lately that Snipes is trying to capture the younger viewers to maintain his career. out of the straight to video movies he's done, the only one that I found interesting was Liberty Stands Still.

Overall, the marksman is a good busy around the house and watch movie.
