Critic Reviews for Shooter: Season 2

All Critics (4)

This season, Shooter is a much faster, more visceral show. It still looks and sounds the same, but it's moving much quicker.

Season two is upping its game.

July 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Shooter is still solid genre television with refreshingly modest ambitions. Instead of breaking the mold, it is continuing to play to the strengths that made it appealing last season.

July 19, 2017 | Full Review…

Phillippe is a convincing hero: His Bob Lee Swagger -- aka the Nailer -- is sufficiently tough-guy to pull off the gun handling, but also radiates the proper intelligence Swagger must possess to be such a shrewd hunter of humans.

Audience Reviews for Shooter: Season 2

½

Bobby Lee Swagger brings the war home in Season 2 of Shooter. Adapted from the Stephen Hunter novel Time to Hunt, after a terrorist attack in Frankfurt, Germany, at an award dinner Bobby Lee and his former Marine unit discover that they're being target for something that they did in Afghanistan and attempt to lead the shooter back to Texas to fight on their home turf; meanwhile Bobby Lee's wife struggles with PTSD in the wake of the attack. Unfortunately the villain is rather cliché and uninteresting, and the actor doesn't bring any charisma to the role. Additionally, Bobby Lee doesn't really work as part of an ensemble, and was much more compelling on his own and on the run. Still, there's some good action and some suspenseful cat-and-mouse games with the shooter. A bit of step down from last season, Season 2 of Shooter struggles as it finds a new direction to take the series in (and the reduced episode order to 8 doesn't help any).
