More entertaining if you sit it through!
7 November 2015 | by rottningeSee all my reviews

I got the honor to watch Sniper: Legacy on the 4327th movie-sitting festival on my grand old couch, alone, before bedtime. (I never understood why it is important to give information on that but anyway...)

This has a less serious tone than the previous Sniper movies. I didn't really get it at first but, boy, did I get it during the last 5 minutes. I then understood why many characters were extra stereotypical, where the (sort of) college movie vibes between the younger characters came from, and the more Rambo-ish shoot-outs and 80-ies man-to-man combat scenes came from. If you see it, don't get fooled by the thriller elements in the opening. That is not what it is if you ask me.

Actually, I gave it a good five-out-of-ten while watching it. I let the quite frequent factual errors pass because I thought early on that the writers/director/producers probably weren't going for authentic fire-fights. BUT! Then comes the last five minutes and, BOOM, I have to rate it a seven. There's a big risk that many will hate those five minutes. It's like the end is made in that way to let you choose: It explains the rest of the creation, or, it spoils however you felt about the movie up until then.

Good casting, decent script, directing seems in place, acting is efficient.

That's my take on it. Good night!
