Movie Info

Wesley Snipes stars in this pulse-pounding thriller set in the former Soviet Union. A once high-ranking Soviet military leader has resurfaced in Chechnya, where he has been consolidating his power with remarkable success. United States intelligence discovers he's been able to construct a thermonuclear weapon from materials scavenged from an abandoned nuclear power plant, and he and his soldiers have taken a handful of powerful citizens hostage. In hopes of preventing a global catastrophe, the military brings in Painter (Wesley Snipes), a special agent known as "the Marksman" for his talent in focusing in on the key elements of a crisis and resolving it. Painter and his crew attempt to get inside the nuclear plant-turned-terrorist base and rescue the hostages before U.S. forces begin staging a full-scale attack. But Painter's plan soon backfires when the military's operations don't go as planned, leaving him to wonder who set him up -- and why. The Marksman also stars Tim Abell and William Hope. ~ Mark Deming, Rovimore

Not bad explosive action-thriller. But I'm a fan of Wesley Snipes.

Was an extremely stupid movie, Wesley would have been shot so many different times. Couldn't believe that he would actually do a film like this. Interesting concept awful play through.

This movie was barely watchable. Snipes may have said a dozen words throughout......for better or worse. If your not doing anything on a Tuesday night, I'd lowly recommend this movie.
