Audience Reviews for The Sniper

  • May 26, 2020
    Movies about psychopaths must be handled with intelligence and this one smart. Director Edward Dmytryk and lead actor Arthur Franz deliver.

    a really good suspenseful film if a little preachy. pretty violent for 1952. adolphe menjou gives a fine performance

    Really really weak. The Sniper is completely unengaging but makes no futile effort to make its protagonist likable even in the slightest. Edward Dmytryk does some interesting camera work that almost begins to venture into film noir territory but eventually wimps out. Then the filmmakers have the gall to start pointing fingers by making the audience think after they've bored them.
