Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Involvement is key to any thriller's success and Shooter delivers it. Even in a climate where the pervasive influence of 24 can be argued to have caused "thriller fatigue," Shooter is worth the price of admission.

USA Today Full Review
Average The film has moments of intrigue, but mostly it's all about big guns and firepower.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 93 moviegoers:The guys enjoyed "Shooter" very much, but they didn't quite love it. I say this because there aren't very many "Fantastic" opinions and there are a few average opinions. Still, I can certainly recommend "Shooter" to all the guys. The female opinions are also very good, but not quite great. Again, there aren't very many "Fantastic" opinions and there are a few low opinions. I can still recommend it since most will enjoy it very much.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Bob Lee Swagger (Mark Wahlberg) is a former Marine scout sniper and disgruntled American hero who thought he had walked away from the job forever after a devastating betrayal. Now, despite having sequestered himself in a stunning but remote mountain hideaway, Bob is approached by retired Colonel Isaac Johnson (Danny Glover), who tells him the country desperately needs him. As Johnson tells it, an assassination attempt on the President of the United States is imminent and only Swagger's lethal skills and savvy expertise in long-range ballistics can halt the threat.

Swagger reluctantly agrees one last time to serve his country - but what he doesn't know is that the entire mission is a set-up by a dark government cabal with its own agenda. By the time Swagger realizes the event has been rigged, it's too late. Suddenly, he finds himself in the headlines as the lone gunman who tried to shoot the President. Hunted at every turn, with nowhere to hide and no one to help him except a mystified woman he's just met (Kate Mara) and a novice FBI agent risking his career (Michael Peña), Swagger is in a desperate battle which will put everything he knows to the test. The clock is ticking as he tries to figure out who the real hit men are before they hit him. But Swagger soon realizes even more than his own survival is at stake - because he's about to lift the veil off a devastating conspiracy at the very heart of American power.
