One of the worst change up direction of franchise this movie is a joke this is not what you think it is, like if you loved Sniper movies or first 1 like me and you think this is gonna be a serious movie this and that it's not. How in earth writers & directors know about Sniper (1993) and rest of franchise what it's about.... they don't know abustle know what Sniper all is about it's not Comedy this isn't Bruce Willis Red franchise or Chuck TV series because this is what it's trying to be like. I loved and liked all other Sniper movies out their like 1st film was Amazing it started out a serious action-thriller Military film the direct to DVDs movies were good in my opinion they were fun fast paced straight forward fun movie franchise I can't believe how far it went from 1-8 great last ones were Sniper Ultimate Kill (2017) then to Sniper Assassins end (2020) film were 2 good last ones I have done Sniper marathon after I finished with Sniper Assassins End. Because Sniper franchise the genre of movies isn't Comedy with comedic score music in it it's never silly but when I watched this movie straight from start it was a serious film then 5 minutes later with
opening credit title with Animation playing comedic music I was like what the heck???? This is getting weird later threw out movie it became a comedy-spy movie everything in film the looks and feels cheap about this movie. Some of terribly mediocre actors, cheap photography, but most annoying of all, there is NO thrill or suspense whatsoever. Even the few action scenes look laughable what's even more laughable is when Main character is spotting on room from hotel room building looking after his Team when you find out when camera zooms back villains are at same Hotel building at roof top above where Main character is spotting, I threw my arms in air going like is this meant to be joke seriously???? It's like writers or director must be fan of Marvel movies because nowadays everything is a joke with Marvel movies with overtop silly comedy well sadly to say everything was putting in this stupid silly overtop comedy, I found it extremely distracting they play it during some scenes and some of action scenes I am like God this movie is hurting my Brain cells A SNIPER MOVIE IS NEVER A COMEDY never was. I never ever will know why they changed up movie franchise what did they change it up into like a comedy???? Sniper never was comedy what's next for Sniper sequel for 10th movie it is gonna be a horror movie???? Then 11th it's gonna be SC-FI film because with this movie if you watch any previous movies of Sniper films 1-8 films there aren't comedy goofy in it it was always an action, thrilling suspense straight forward action movie that's all it was. For first time a First Sniper movie in franchise without Tom Berenger or Billy Zane in the cast THANK GOD because if they look into this movie or if they in it... it will look worse because after movie is finished filming, they watch this movie they will look shame of themselves for being in this movie I am not kidding your main character rest of others including tough guys are bit comedic as well like your previous 8th movie character Lady Death (Sayaka Akimoto) she was a cold blooded character quiet, silent Assassin type but now she is a comedic even your main character Brandon Beckett (Chad Michael Collins) you followed him since in 4th movie was a series character learning how to shoot a sniper then threw out other sequels Brandon going through missions from 4th film to 8 his character you take seriously but in here he is a joke just made him look like embarrassing & silly like a joke. Plot follows this guy who is a human trafficker who is with other villains were planning to kill those porn star girls witch you feel sorry for like you hate those villains so bad, and this guy Simon (Toby Hughes) who is one of human traffickers saves 1 girl Mary Jane (Jocelyn Hudon) but he can't save all other girls but only 1 like he if he knew other guys will kill other girls then save others leave door open for other girls to them let out before villains kills girls witch, they
did I don't like seeing Dead girls from start of movie you feel extremely sorry for girls. Brandon Beckett (Chad Michael Collins) from previous 5 movies in this it's his 6th film he is at London spying at woman then he catches Bad guy that's all made it soo totally random. So then next day Gabriel Stone (Dennis Haysbert) who appeared in Sniper Legacy & Sniper Ghost Shooter appeared in this 1 which made him think wished he didn't appear in this movie, fires Brandon for because of some reason so now Brandon goes rogue, teaming up with his former allies Homeland Security Agent Zero and assassin Lady Death who now works as a waiter so what do they call her Lady Death one of waitress accepted her resume from her previous job her been Assassin killing people from past to been a waitress??? Anyway so Team goes uncover the corrupt agent and take down the criminal organization because there is a crooked federal agent is involved in a human sex trafficking ring and entire movie and characters were stupidly silly comedic playing comedy score music
like you hear from Red films or Oceans 13 or Chuck TV series with that comedic music in it. Action scenes were eh nothing to special expect there were moment where Zero shoots guy head Multiple times then when elevator door opens 2 people screamed not series way but funny way, I was like what the heck. Rest of movie nothing was exacting or made like to like movie and villains were just laughable, just laughable they get a Sniper a Sniper villain who is a useless, gutless Sniper spotter who misses targets, takes a longtime to shoot Sniper who has no experience main villain can't get other guy to shoot Sniper???? The actors/characters were not convincing in their roles at all they are there for paycheck. The writer and Director, Oliver Thompson should really find a different career path because he hasn't never Directed movie in his life only 1 movie he was also producer from previous Sniper movie Sniper Assassins End, which was much, BETTER movie then to this crap at least Director & writers taken 8th Sniper film aka Assassins End seriously and he gets a green lit he ruined this movie so bad completely horribly bad, what makes him think turning this a 9th Sniper movie into a comedy with comedic music which was too loud and out of place... it's laughable it's laughable film you won't take this any seriously like other Sniper movies if you think Sniper direct to DVD sequels were horrible Bad!!! Then watch this tell me what is better I am fan of Sniper films I am a huge fan their weren't a comedy aka comedic type Sniper films had action, thrilling suspense movie toke itself series it may not be greatest franchise 1-8 but its flawed that I can easily Deal but with this flawed 9th worst film was very extremely overtop director to me never watched every Sniper movie out there and to know what it is about what kind of genre it is he was producer from 8th movie previous 2020 movie if you think that's Bad then I will prove you wrong this movie is never a series movie, it's comedy with comedic music witch it will make your ears Bleed, characters acting like goofy and silly & dumb overtop actors don't want to be there you can tell it, movie doesn't have any Sniper scenes only for a bit but not entire movie and movie is called Sniper and it doesn't have any brutal Sniper kills in movie, this feels like a low budget goofy silly overtop Mission Impossible film like Ghost Practical that had some little comedy but in sametime movie taken itself series. With this movie made your lead that you followed in 5 movies you taken him seriously and now to this movie made him look like an idiot completely like other with characters and villains witch they were forgettable thugs Human traffics. There's nothing wrong in movies with Some humor but this overtop humor this is like my theory writers or director taken notes from Marvel movies they said let's make our own Sniper movie 9th movie into a comedy witch it will make it different??? Just because it's different doesn't mean it's good. Music, I will say it again... it's so bad make your ears Bleed. Unfitting I don't know why went for Red or Ocean's Eleven direction What's with the loud music everytime there is action scene? 90% of the time the music background does not jive with the scene on screen people if you see Sniper franchise and you're a fan like me please avoid this Dumpster crap. Wasn't expect an Action/Comedy movie. The Zero Character from previous 8th Sniper film not a good fit. Too goofy against the quality of characters. Nice guy, but Sniper franchise portrays precision. This doesn't.
The ex-Yakuza fighter Lady Death (Sayaka Akimoto) was such a Badass from Sniper Assassins end made her into a joke into this movie. Like in movie where they found this nerds computer guy who is nerds completely offering guys, a soda at end of movie credits main character and others standing their enjoying soda Lady Death goes like I... want.... Fanta toke her 20 seconds to say and finish full line and rest of characters talked like that I don't know what to explain in this review if you see seen you will get what I am saying it will make you want to turn off movie go out do something else. I am like this is writer's and Director stole ideas like Marvel movies goofy stupid overtop comedy films. Avoid this movie please its worst of worst go back watch all Sniper movies 1-8 end from their avoid this garbage trash film I will be curious what will they do with Sniper movies and how many will they make it up to Sniper 15???? Anyway, I rather go out clubbing go out have fun get girls go at Dance getting to know them me getting lucky would be more entertain then to this movie.
