Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This movie is as generic and originality-free as its name would suggest. The plot is fill-in-the-blank simple all the way, but the true test of Sniper: Ultimate Kill's banality and ineptitude is in its attempts to humanize its rather robotic characters. A Marine sniper with 67 kills commits suicide, but this development isn't integrated into the plot in any meaningful way that would merit its inclusion. Another Marine sniper is assigned to a confidential operation run by his father, and although some tension between them is suggested, the reason for that tension is neither explored nor brought to bear on the substance of the action. Only devotees of the previous Sniper films, originated with Berenger playing the sniper, will understand all the history. Fans of shoot-'em-ups may be satisfied with the blood, action, and guns, but there's nothing else here of value.
