Trivia

In the opening credits to the television series, Shooter (2016) you see "SEMPER FI," which is short for "Semper Fidelis." It means "always faithful," or "always loyal." It's the motto of the U.S. Marine Corps., the branch of the military Bob Lee Swagger (Ryan Phillippe) was in. See more »

Goofs

Members of the United States Marine Corps do NOT put their hands into their pockets when in uniform.

This is a learned behavior that is ingrained into their heads during basic training training. A Sergeant. like Bob Lee definitely would not do so as he would set a poor example for his subordinates. See more »

Promising, has potential, but still early to say to be good.
16 November 2016 | by office-934-681839See all my reviews

This seems to be promising. A little of "the contractor, with Wesley Snipes", a bit of "murder at 1600", and other similar movies have been set on the stage, but nevertheless this is now a series, a TV show and it can go into a interesting direction. Although it is hard to say after the first plot, how it really will end up. Anyhow, I will wait for the next show and see if it is worthy my higher scores. One at last, there are a view top shows out there, meaning top writing, acting, scenery, music, etc. (some like Banshee, although it might be not everybody's genre), anyway, this first show is a little poor on these parts, but as I said it has the potential to become much better. We will see.
