Trivia

The coordinates shown on the drone control panel at 9:52(NTSC) are 33° 23' 40" 20° 98' 47" and later 35°98'47" 35°78'47" and at 1:01:55 (NTSC) are 33° 23' 40" 20° 98' 47" and 35° 63' 40" 35' 78' 47". Although no direction is indicated, they are presumably north latitude and east longitude because those would in fact place the coordinates in north Africa. See more »

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 Class Act all the way through
20 August 2016 | by brutzelSee all my reviews

Sniper Brandon Beckett (Collins) is assigned to protect an oil pipeline, but a Ghost Sniper shoots and kills some of his team. Who is it? Beckett feels someone on his side is giving the enemy sniper coordinates, and, of course, this doesn't go over big with his superiors. Oh, oh.

This is probably one of the best sniper movies to come along in a long time. The acting, cinematography, photography and the music were all sensational and quite engaging. It was like watching a Bond, James Bond movie without it being so. In other words, this is a class act all the way through. Kudos.

Nice to see Dennis Haysbert as the Colonel or Arch Angel as we do miss the popular TV show The Unit he starred in.

A breath of fresh air and some can consider this Comic Relief with Ravil Aisyanov as Andrei when Beckett is assigned to his team for a short while. Andrei conjures up memories of Bruce Willis' character John McClane in Die Hard when he mimics McClane to Beckett's amusement. Great job by Ravil Aisyanov. (9/10)
