Better-than-average DTV fare; a pleasant diversion for action fans
"Sniper: Ultimate Kill" is a competent potboiler action/thriller DTV production, offering a pleasant diversion. The acting is more than adequate to the task, with some familiar faces and capable Hispanic performers. Cinematography is capable, with a refreshing lack of distracting jiggly-cam shots. Bogotá and Miami locations are realistic. Costumes, weapons and vehicles are true to form.
It lacks the trappings of big-budget action films. There are no big car chases, shootouts, or fight scenes. No parkour stunts. The moral is fairly simplistic concerning guilt and responsibility. It doesn't try to be cerebral and doesn't make profound political statements. There are shootouts, chases, car crashes and fights, but they are relatively low-key. It sets the bar about mid-level and easily clears it.
