Goofs

At around 17:52 in the movie the sniper who tries to shoot "Junior" with a Dragunov looks through the sight PSO-1 and incorrectly ranges the actor as being closer than 100m, which is completely wrong as the scope has a ranging etching on the left side. A person 200m away 1.7m tall should be as tall as the first rightmost etch, while in the movie the sniper is approx. 300m away. The target should not be that big, as the scope magnifies 4x only.

A Fresh Perspective on Sniper Movies
11 January 2019 | by tabunoSee all my reviews

19 February 2017. This rather mainstream, action-thriller incorporates the penchant of bigger and thus perhaps better movie making philosophy by taking some good sniper movies and placing them in a somewhat larger geo-political arena and using a large special ops team instead of the individual sniper and spotter concept. A superb comparison is Jean-Jacques Annaud's Enemy at the Gates (2001) starring Jude Law and Ed Harris one of the most psychologically intense and balance movies about snipers, this one set during World War II Germany. Another nice comparison for super-charged, hi-tech political thriller would be Tony Scott's Spy Game starring Robert Redford and Brad Pitt that came out the same year.

Sniper has the exciting, energizing musicality of The Bourne Identity (2002) and the rich exotic flair of foreign Cityscapes of Bond movies. What Sniper offers is the incorporation of the fascinating intensity of specialized lethal killing along with the use of technology and teamwork against an almost as astute adversary. Yet this movie falls a bit short of the adversarial balance of Enemy at the Gates and the complex machinations of Spy Game.
