The film's weird, thin politics become harder to swallow as it lurches from set-up to set-up.

This is the first big-studio action picture (the director is Antoine Fuqua) with some of the disgusted, bloody nihilism of the post-Vietnam era.

Ballistic fetishists and anticorporate activists will find common ground in each violent act against political fat cats, but the rest of us are left to wallow in the bloodlust and wonder who switched the reels.

That Shooter is far better than can be expected is down to the excellent direction of Antoine Fuqua. He marries action movie clichés with a subversive sense of paranoia and humour.

Shooter is nothing special, but a combination of appealing performances, intriguing plot twists and exciting action sequences mean that we're never less than entertained.
