Storyline

Inside the stately Senate Hearing Room, Frank White, professional soldier, Vietnam vet and CIA operative, is fighting the toughest battle of his life: he's on trial for the assassination of Miguel Rivera, a Central American diplomat. Only two men could have made the shot - White or his friend Rick Burns, ex-military sniper now working as a Mafia hitman. Testimony unravels the intricate web created by Rivera and Daniel Waterman, head of an international cartel dabbling in both Latin American Politics and cocaine. A while back, White and Burns led a commando assault into the Colombian jungle to destroy Waterman's main cocaine processing factory. After a vicious battle against counter-attacking mercenaries the entire strike team was slaughtered...all except for White and Burns. Burns returned home with a bitter obsession: revenge. But Waterman discovered his plan to assassinate Rivera and set out to stop it by blackmailing Frank White. Desperate, White turned to beautiful WHITNEY TODD, ... Written by Anonymous

Just Fun
14 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

I have seen this movie maybe 12 or 13 years ago. It came back to my mind when I saw a TV documentary about snipers at the israelian army the other night. All I remember about this flick is: there is no emotion, no sympathy no nothing when you watch it. In Germany the title is "Hangmen 2" related to 1987's "Hangmen". Both titles are available on video only in Germany. You can imaging why. It's bad acting and you have to search the story by using enlarging glasses. But anyway: the atmosphere somehow is above the average of an ordinary low-budget action-flick. The music and the feeling of oppressiveness is something not many movies have. And: it's the best sniper-movie ever.
