Sniper: Ghost Shooter
"We’re not in the business of next time. We’re in the business of one time." - Miller
release year: 2016
viewing setting: home DVD 5/13/20
synopsis: Son of sniper continues his adventures with a multi-branch team of snipers.
impressions: It's a team of snipers! They have soldiers from various branches of the U.S. military, as well as Billy Zane to command them and the British guy from the last movie to help out. Plus the mysterious command presence of the Colonel. And yet...some aspects of this film didn't make sense to me. It seems silly to discipline your best team member by sending him far away on a dangerous mission. I also didn't understand what was going on by the final battle - in fact, I fell asleep for parts of it, which is unlike me.
location of mission: Georgia, in Eurasia
sidekick/companion: no one person, just a bunch of young sniper soldiers in his team
acting: Chad Michael Collins returns as the son, and has some discipline problems here. Billy Zane is the sniper team leader, and looks puffy compared to his younger days. Dominic Mafham returns as the British sniper who's a hard-ass, and Dennis Haysbert also returns as the guy in charge of everything. Notable young team members are played by Nick Gomez, Presciliana Esparolini, Enoch Frost, and Jade Ogagua. Stephanie Vogt is a CIA type.
final word: This series is losing some steam. It might be time to try a more straightforward plot.
