Did You Know?

Trivia

All the signs in the so-called "Ho Chi Minh" city are in Thai, which doesn't look even remotely like Vietnamese. Vietnamese language is written in the Western alphabet, with accent symbols over some letters. Thai has its own alphabet, quite indecipherable to Westerners. See more »

Goofs

When Beckett and Detective Quan are in the tunnels Beckett is carrying a sidearm in his left hand and rifle with his right hand with the index finger "missing", but in another shot it is carrying the rifle in his left hand and the handgun in his right showing the index finger on the trigger.

Quotes

Beckett: Different kinds. Whenever I kill a man it's because he needs killing. I look at his life and if it adds up to nothing I take him out. But you, Finn, you got to liking it. I never did. What's this all about, Finn? How does it all end here?

Thomas Beckett "One in a Million" and Quan Kick Some Tail
9 July 2005 | by aonnSee all my reviews

The Sniper series is just as good as any action movie that you'd see at a movie theater. Unbeknownst to the neophyte, these Sniper movies are really spy movies and damn good ones, I might add. The series is well produced, adequately funded and high tech. You won't see any bad acting or hear any lame jokes here. Instead, you get evenly distributed bang for your buck.

In the cloak and dagger realm of Sniper 3, you are taken on a mission to modern day Ho Chi Minh, previously called Saigon. The NSA (National Security Agency) has reactivated a former Marine sniper, Tom Beckett, so as to hunt down and neutralize a target, which is connected to a high level mole in the Washington political arena. Has Colonel Dan McKenna, NSA military intelligence, positioned in Washington D.C., picked the right man for this assignment? Also, can we count on William Avery, Deputy Director of NSA, to oversee the operation through to completion? We have our fingers crossed. Beware the Cobra—revere the Mongoose! and learn about an ancient Vietnamese folktale, as your life will depend on it.

The Sniper 3 soundtrack is upbeat and will delight more than a handful of Ravers. Vietnam in the twenty-first century sure ain't what it used to be, and offers a new light juxtaposed with the age-old, dark world of espionage.

Make sure you check out the other Sniper installments, as they are equally worthy.
