Sharpshooter (Genius/RHI Telefilm)


Picture: C+     Sound: B-     Extras: D     Feature: D



If Elmer Fudd was teaming up with Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck watching DVDs, they could add “assassin season” or “sniper season” to their repertoire of gags as so many more productions than ever with such protagonists are being made.  First-shooter videogames and spy films are the top reasons, but few are ever good.  One of the silliest is the 2007 telefilm Sharpshooter, with James Remar as the title character taking on “one last mission” and (surprise!) being betrayed/set up.  From that predictability, this all gets worse and Mario Van Peebles appearance only makes this sillier.


This is just plain bad and after the Mark Wahlberg feature Shooter did not work, having some of the same plot points, this is so bad that it is cashing in on nothing to cash in on.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is soft throughout, looks like it was shot on video (sometimes a generation down) and is loaded with motion blur throughout.  The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is weak, obviously not created to utilize multi-channel and is on the weak side, making it a combination of tiredness.  There are no extras.
