Sorely lacks the character moments of the first Sniper, but not bad by direct-to-DVD standards.

A low-rent shoot-'em-up that may actually be worthy of a 3-dollar rental!

Audience Reviews for Sniper 2

Sequel to the Tom Berenger low budget action film Sniper basically takes the same idea and recycles it into a new plot. The film lacks anything that really stands out, therefore it just becomes a tiresome affair, one that continues the tradition of cashing in on its more successful predecessor by delivering something familiar, and in doing so, it ends up being a mediocre to decent affair, one that could have been good, but never becomes anything memorable due to lacking performances, poor story, and forgettable thrills. This film could have been exciting and worth seeing if only the filmmakers would have applied themselves a bit more, instead of just relying on old, formulaic ideas. I can understand that the idea is a sniper behind enemy lines, and it's a terrific idea, but there could have been so many ways to pull off a sequel. The result here is more of the same, but it just feels watered down. Though there are exciting action sequences, there is also the fact it just tries too hard at outdoing the original while threading the same ground. Sniper is a film that didn't necessitate a sequel. Diehard fans of the first might enjoy this, but for viewers of action films wanting a bit more out of the film, this sequel won't satisfy. S a whole, Sniper lingers the fine line of mediocre to decent, but it's a film that overall disappoints, and shows that the original didn't need a sequel. Sniper should have been a standalone film, as the ideas in this follow-up are never really that great, in fact it's a clichéd plot that is far too predictable at times.

Well Sniper 2 was alot better than Sniper 1. Each to their own. I mean there was not much difference in the plot though a tiny bit exciting and more movin on than the first one. Besides there were some great funny funny/sarcastic quotes.

    1. Sgt. Thomas Beckett: Let's move out into town.
    2. B.J. Cole: That town's gotta be hot!
    3. Sgt. Thomas Beckett: [Beckett turns around, looks at Cole, briefly looks at his watch, and looks back up at Cole] Now you look here, we have 30 minutes to our rendezvous, so either you go with me or without me.
