“You don't really need to engage your brain before...”

★★★★☆

written by Hank on 23/04/2007

You don't really need to engage your brain before sitting down to watch Antoine Fuqua's rapid fire sniper film. This film is one for action die heards - big on explosions, big on carnage, a cool hero and despicable villains.

All the ingredients are here for a classic action piece, which is what we get as Whalberg's character - Bob Lee Swagger - is recruited by the FBI to help prevent a Presidential assasination. The dead-eyed sniper is the only man with the experience to work out how the attack on the President is going to play out and he is required to help the Feds nail the crooks.

However all does not go according to plan and it is not long before Swagger is betrayed by the very people who recruited him to go on the run. This is where the film picks up as Swagger blasts his way out of Washington before he can be arrested for the very crime he was there to stop.

Swagger then goes on a mission to prove his innoncence and finish off the conspirators who set him up.

As I stated earlier this film is not a thought provoker, just an honest action film with a leading character you can root for plus some solid support from Michael Pena as a good guy FBI agent and Danny Glover as the villain in chief.

For a while I couldn't get used to Glover playing a bad guy - he usually plays the good guys - but by the end I was suitably rooting for Swagger to despatch him.

If you like big bangs, loads of guns and a fair share of blood thirsty violence then look no further.
