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.

There's enough unsettling paranoia that you don't exactly know how it's all going to turn out. It feels more like it could have come from the early '70s, when happy endings might not necessarily be right around the corner.

If you don't mind watching a rerun of a few other, better, spy thrillers, Shooter isn't half bad.

Despite its slew of genre cliches, Shooter works in fits and starts as a valentine to a simpler era in action films.

Halfway decent script, good acting, good chases and stuff gets blown up. What more do you want? Godzilla?

A exhilarating, big budget action thriller about corruption, betrayal and integrity.. Director Antoine Fuqua delivers thrills on a large scale and Wahlberg is a charismatic hero, overcoming all the odds to find justice far away from the Justice Department

There are plenty of things wrong with Shooter but the quantity and indeed the quality of the explosions isn't one of them.

It's no masterpiece, but it's way better than the usual big gun/small brain fare.

Mark Wahlberg is an effective weapon of mass destruction as an ex-marine set up to take the fall for an ugly political cover-up.

It's the execution that matters, and for the most part ... the formula is executed well.

This notion that villains might be identified and "dealt with" is rather quaint.

The acting is solid throughout, which helps the film over the rather large plot holes.

Wahlberg's hard-charging heart and rugged determination capture the essence of strong-and-silent-types who fall hard for the lofty rhetoric of idealism.

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.

It has one triple-super sudden-death revenge overtime too many. But inhale this meaty, juicy thriller like you would a Thickburger - before the dripping grease congeals on your fingers and you start thinking about what you're eating.
Full Review| Original Score: 3/4

It has just enough straight-faced bravado that you can sort of buy it, the same way you swallow the addictive preposterousness of '24' every week.

While not boasting a very original plot, 'Shooter' provides a showcase for Mark Wahlberg's versatility as an actor.
