Poor Wesley Snipes having to be in crap like this. The script even for an action movie (the better action movies always have at least quite good scripts) is really, really poor, cliched and bland, the supporting cast wouldn't be out of place in a daytime soap opera and a lot of the "action" is made up of old stock footage of planes landing on aircraft carriers again and again. Snipes, just like certain cheapo Seagal movies, is not actually in the movie that much, and when he is he's given just as bad lines as everyone else. There is one OK action sequence, but the awful and boring army intelligence scenes feel like they make up at least half of the run time and they just ruin everything. Snipes deserves better. Avoid.

Lame Wesley Snipes direct-to-video action flick. Like most of Segal's weary direct-to-video films, this one was is also set and filmed in super cheap eastern Europe with a tired story of Chechen rebels taking over an abandoned nuclear reactor. Ho hum. Wesley uses his title marksman skills to thwart the bad guys.

I'm an action junkiby heart, and this movie was not Snipes' best film, however it was still a good movie in it's own way. ful of action, but the story line has been done before.

If you're into combat movies, this is enjoyable and not too silly, unlike other action films.

pretty bad movie...lousy acting, too many characters, plot was absurd(the usa goes into russia to do their dirty work for them?) etc, etc.....many other movies like this one have been much better.

Wesley Snipes can hardly bear to say a world in this fast track through locations.

boring, bland, cheap and stupid.
well, what else do you expect from a straight to dvd action movie?
there is some pretty cool action in there but there isnt a whole lot and the story is really not very interesting at all, nothing is really interesting about the marksman so it makes me wonder, why do people keep making movies like this? i dont know, but you shouldnt see the marksman and if you're still curious and want to see it anyway, you're an idiot. go ahead and try but i tell you, it will be dissapointing.

A film with a storyline that has been done before, however it is still a good movie, full of action and an nice performance by Snipes. Not one of his best films though.

A U.S. Special Forces operative must save Russia from nuclear annihilation in this action-packed thriller. With orders to destroy a Chechen nuclear power plant before terrorists use it as their own WM.

This is totally retarded. Lame directing, weak story, very bad editing, even worse actors, including Wesley... Made in 2005 ?? It looked more like a very bad mid 80s film !!! Ewwww...

Ouch, Snipes can do much better then this. This is a movie that knows what an action movie is supposed to be, imiotates it but fails to generate much excitment. In the end I didn't care ether way for the characters, story or most unforgivably anyofthe action scenes. This is fit for backround noise at best.

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.
