He’s left the military, having been hung out to dry in a secret Ethiopian mission a few years before, when he’s recruited by a colonel to help find a way that the President of the US might be assassinated in one of three cities in the next two weeks. He does his work, but the shot is fired notwithstanding and Bob Lee is quickly the fall guy: wounded and hunted by thousands, he goes to ground and, aided by two unlikely allies, searches for the truth and for those who double-crossed him. All roads lead back to Ethiopia.
Plot: A marksman living in exile is coaxed back into action after learning of a plot to kill the president. Ultimately double-crossed and framed for the attempt, he goes on the run to track the real killer and find out who exactly set him up, and why??

Ah, so that’s what happened. Kinda.
“I’m a patsy!”
The last words of an accused presidential assassin, himself killed – on live TV no less. Ah, the 60s, when America appeared at once to be both starting to “get it” and also coming apart at the seams.
Lee Harvey Oswald was introduced to the world as a lone sharp shooter who felled a president. But, very early in the aftermath, there were doubts and details that, in total, just didn’t seem to add up. Accordingly, theories proliferated questioning the veracity of that official position in light of evidence and the interpretations thereof. If the official story is not what happened, is there a plausible scenario that would more reasonably account for all those details, moving us closer to the truth of what may otherwise have actually happened?
And thus, we have Shooter.
No, it is no attempt to flesh out, to the last inch, everything that is or may have been about Oswald. It’s a story that has parallels – and even a non-casual mention of/reference to the Kennedy assassination to help us watching at home realize what we were actually watching – a plausible scenario.
All around solid action-thriller with Mark Wahlberg in his element. Luis Guzman served as a fun sidekick and Kate Mara is a stunner. Shame this didn’t do better at the box office, would’ve liked to have a sequel instead of that USA Network TV show… **3.75/5**
Wahlberg may be next Bruce Willis
Mark Wahlberg might be the Bruce Willis of the new generation. His taciturn Bobby Swagger is perfect. The action is basically nonstop and very gritty. Bobby is a sniper who has retired to the mountains after being screwed by the government in an event which finds his sidekick dead. After being set up, he is stone cold killer. Think Jason Bourne as someone who remembers his past is really p.o.’d about it. The acting is good all around, with Glover and Beatty as bad guys you love to hate. Underlying all this a morality tale about what this country and its government have become. Many situations, of course, stretch the imagination , but watching a sense of honor prevail, no matter how briefly, is worth the price of admission. No Oscar nominations here, but a big bundle of money for the producers will be no surprise.
I was surprised in many ways by shooter. #1, I was surprised by the release. I follow movies and I didn’t hear about this title until early this year. #2, I was amazed by Marks ability to sell me on his acting skills. #3, By the fact that the most established actors in this title, Ned and Danny may have given career killing performances. I think Tony Todd and Stephen Root would have been solid choices, but my guess is the two poor performances were bought for name recognition.
To me this had Eastwood written all over it. At times I thought I was watching Line of Fire at others Unforgiven, but in the end it was just really good entertainment, much like The Bourne movies.
I think it’s worth the watch and the story although not new was presented in a fresh manner. This one will go in my collection when available. I’m sure it will have a host of deleted scenes and alternate endings.
