Critic Consensus: Ryan Phillippe's efforts aren't enough to salvage Shooter, a tedious, under-developed drama that lacks an original voice or perspective.

News & Interviews for Shooter: Season 1
The biggest problem with Shooter isn't its uncomfortable topicality, it's that the show has virtually no point of view regarding the complicated issues it brings to the fore.
The problem is that Shooter doesn't feel like the right show for our times, which are already tense enough. It has been delayed twice after real-life mass shootings. The loud crack of guns being fired isn't what some of want to hear right now.
You can see why this project was made for cable network audiences, but you'll be wishing the execution was more inventive.
A middle-of-the-pack conspiracy thriller that's neither the best nor the worst thing on TV.
Watching Shooter as a series is like falling back into a well-known and familiar story, just one with lots of guns. It's downright comfortable. And that's odd.
