A Psychological Drama, NOT an Action Movie
Some guys think that sniper is not good because of the action part of it was not good enough. Well, if you regard it as an action movie, this view point could be quite true as the action part of this movive is not actually exciting. However, I think this is a psychological drama rather than an action one.
The movie mainly told us about the inside of two snipers who definitely had different personalities and different experiences. Tomas Beccket , who was a veteran and had 74 confirmed kills, looked as if he was cold-hearted. However, after Beccket showed his day dream of Montana, we can clearly see his softness inside. It was the cruel war and his partners’ sacrifice that made Beccket become so called cold-hearted.
Millar, on the contrary, was a new comer, a green hand, and was even not qualified as a sniper. Billy Zane did quite well to show millar’s hesitation and fear when he first tried to “put a bullet through one’s heart”(as what Beccket said). What he thought about the actuall suicide mission was that it could be easily accomplished and then he could safely get back and receive the award.
These two guys were quite different in their personalities and I think that the movie had successfully showed the difference and the impact they had to each other due to the difference in their personalities. These two snipers quarreled, suspected each other and finally come to an understanding by the communication and by what they had done to help even to save the other.
Sniper isn’t a good action movie but a good psychological one.
Implausible storyline, great action
Action? Not in the sense of Sly Stallone or even Die Hard, but still action nonetheless. Although I have never been even remotely close to a sniper rifle, or anything military, I have read extensively on the topic, and I have to say, it was as accurate as everything I’ve ever read. Down to the ghillie suit, cam cream, grenades and everything else. Although lacking a solid storyline, the tension is built up perfectly, and really portrays the role of an army sniper to the T. Great acting by Tom Berenger, although I wasn’t too fond of Zane’s character, or Zane himself. Thought he overacted a little, but that’s just an opinion. All round good action movie.
