Goofs

During a scene where the main character is overhearing radio chatter, some one says "over and out" which is incorrect radio procedure. "Over" means "my message is finished and I am waiting for your reply." "Out" means "I have finished talking to you and don't expect a reply." One would never say "over and out"; one would either say "over" to continue a conversation or "out" to end it. Any military personnel allowed on a radio would know this. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Matthews: [sighting through his scope from a bush] Nothin'. Hit n' run. Whoever it was they're gone. War's over, he got the memo.
[sighs]
Matthews: Ize?
[bird squawking]
Matthews: Allen? Ize!
Isaac: [on his radio] What?
Matthews: We got no movement, not a sign of a shadow... How long we been here, man? 18, plus?
Isaac: 20.
Matthews: [sighs] Jesus. There's nobody fuckin' out there, man.

don't mind negative comments decent thriller

this is Doug Liman

The Bourne Trilogy were the best yet, and The Edge of Tomorrow was geniously directed, now a sniper thriller and a decent one.

All negative commenters do not know anything about sniping and naturally can't emphatize the plot. should have read a little something about sniping and then go see the movie (if they have a habbit of reading)

Aaron Taylor Johnson is convincing enough and does most of the work, and the sniper, he is an unstoppable force.

the character development, issues that the lead actor suffering, the landscape and spot, the technicality, all very well crafted.

if you like a new experience on battle films go see this one. if you have ever played Ghost Sniper you have to see this one.
