" The List of people who want me dead, just got longer "
The first time James Remar ever became notable to audiences was in the cult classic 'The Warriors' which I believe will be difficult for Remar to top. Still his list of accomplishments keeps growing and becoming more impressive. This film for instance is called " Sharpshooter. " It tells the story of a U.S. Soldier named Dillon (James Remar) who after a twenty year career as a specialist Marksman has had enough and decides to retire. Seeking to find a place where Peace is the by-product, he tells his bosses, this was the last mission and says good-by. However, Flick, (Mario Van Peebles) his partner on many of the previous missions, pleads for him to stay for one last mission, to which Dillon, acquiesces. The mission itself is simple, take out one last terrorist, but which suddenly become mysterious and complicated. The movie is well done in that it exercises the talents of Van Peebles and enhances the role for Remar as he plays the good-guy a role he does not often get. With Catherine Mary Steward and Bruce Boxleitner in supporting roles, the cast does it's best to achieve a winning combination. The acting is a bit strained, the dialog, stiff and the final resolution is murky. Still it's one of Remar's better films and I will expect this one to go into his vault of memories. ****
