Eastern Europe Tripe, 1 December 2005
Author: Keith Kjornes (keith@kjornes.com) from Fort Worth, Texas

I've seen some bad Wesley Snipes movies (and this is one of them) but I've rarely seen a bad Wesley Snipes performance. His acting style is much better than the junk here, but if he continues to make these loser films, he will indeed lose his "Teflon" status. THE MARKSMAN is a horrible example of BAD MOVIE-- shot in the economically depressed "eastern Europe" where the local governments offer "creative incentives" for film companies to come there and blow things up, this movie reeks of "been there, done that".

Trying to make a Jerry Bruckheimer action film on a low budget is just plain painful to watch. The costumes looked cheesy and the action scenes contrived. There's one scene where Painter (Snipes) is wearing a camouflage cap so big, it bends his ears out and makes him look like an elf. Later, the hat is so small it looks like a party favor perched three inches up his bald skull.

EVERYTHING about this story is contrived. ONLY THE BOX ART is good looking, the rest is slam bang crash boom from the eighties repackaged as entertainment. YOU'VE SEEN THIS MOVIE BEFORE-- just say "no!"
