Sniper: Ghost Shooter (2016/Sony DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: C Extras: D Film: B-

An elite group of American snipers are assembled by the military and sent to the Middle East to protect an oil pipeline when a group of terrorist threaten to destroy it as a political statement as a show of strength. However, when snipers are the ones being sniped, sniper Brandon Beckett suspect there is a breach in intelligence and begins a personal hunt for his fallen comrades in Don Michael Paul's Sniper: Ghost Shooter (2016).

A sniper is said to get the most kills on a team, and when you assemble a whole team of snipers, you get the ultimate killing unit. Sent in life or death situations, they take out the enemy with extreme prejudice, where one bullet means one dead enemy. But when a team of sniper's heavy support fire of drones gets hacked, their GPS position, intelligence gets compromised, and it is the team ends up as the targets. And while military command tries to avoids blame and point fingers, the surviving team must take things into their own hand.

This was an action oriented movie for military/sniper lovers. There was a lot of military jargon and technologies as well. Of course, with modern warfare, there are drones, but what happens if the military gets too dependent on technology? And what happens if that technologies software falls into the hands of your enemy? Wars will always exist, but it is said battles can be only won by soldiers ...and not by some drone. Not bad so many sequels later, Chad Michael Johnson, Billy Zane and Dennis Haysbert star.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is flawed but good, but the lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix has too choppy a soundfield for its own good and there are no extras.
