Goofs

Master Sergeant Beckett's rank insignia is wrong while he's wearing his dress uniform at the funeral in the beginning. A Master Sergeant is 3 chevrons above and 3 arcs below but the insignia on his uniform is 3 chevrons above and 4 arcs below (Sergeant Major). They even put the crossed rifles in the middle which is never there in an E-9 insignia. See more »

Cross hairs are centered on the action but it's not a clean hit
20 May 2019 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

An American action-thriller. The seventh film in the Sniper film series. It features all three of the recurring characters: U.S. Marine Sgt Brandon Beckett, Thomas Beckett, a former Mastery Gunnery Sgt of Force Reconnaissance Scout Snipers in U.S. Marine Corps, and his former protege Richard Miller, now a Marine Corps Major. A Colombian drug kingpin pays a murderous gang sniper to kill his enemies. Brandon Beckett is re-assigned to Columbia to hunt both of them down, with the help of a DEA agent who has been following the drug lord for years. While this is a generic actioner and without a lot of originality, the action is quite absorbing. The script is mediocre and there are scenes of gratuitous sex and gore which bring it down a few notches in credibility. There is a drive to make a point about the mental health of military snipers but it only skirts the surface and then abandons it. Some tension between father and son is suggested, but the tension is neither explored nor brought to bear on the substance of the action and it barely resolves it amidst all the testosterone in the air. The film is one for followers of the series because the backstories are not explained or referenced like the earlier films. Nevertheless, solid action keep the viewers' attention throughout, and an array of quirky villains makes it interesting.
