Goofs

The movie is supposed to take place after Milosevic was overthrown in 2000. at one point in the movie Sophia says that the assassination of Valstoria would prompt the Serbian government to denounce the assassination as a result of a 'UN atrocity'. However, Serbia was readmitted into the UN after Milosevic was overthrown. Serbia, which was the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia at the time, was suspended from the UN because of it's support for Serb rebels in the neighboring nations of Croatia and Bosnia, where civil wars occurred in the first half of the 1990's.

Marine sniper Thomas Beckett returns to action to kill a rouge general
29 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

Sniper 2 is the sequel to the 1993 film SNIPER, both starring Tom Berenger. In this installment Beckett (Berenger) has been drummed out of the marines due to the finger he lost in the first film (I had to go back and see if that happened -- it did). He's down on his luck and getting by as a hunting guide and by winning sniper competitions when the government contacts him. They will give him anything to return to action and kill a rouge Eastern European general. Beckett's "anything" turns out to be his uniform and rank returned. He is then hooked up with Cole (Bookim Woodbine) and dropped in enemy territory. The mission goes well, Beckett kills his mark but then things take a terrible twist. The rest of the film is a rather exciting adventure where things are not what they seem to be.

I found this film on Cinemax and really enjoyed it. Great action from the first to the last frame. Berenger looks great and reprises his role with class. Woodbine is a bit smug at first like he's enjoying a joke we don't get, but he gets better as the film goes on. The twist is very clever and I never saw it coming. As I said I watched the original after I saw this installment and will vouch that the sequel is far better. It's non-stop action with a couple of great lines.
