Shooter ★★★

It was alright, not the best thriller I've ever seen, probably not even the best Wahlberg thriller I've seen! But it was ok. Just.. not bad.

There were moments that I quite liked watching, particularly towards the beginning of the film (but then I am a sucker for those wilderness shots). They also showcased some rather impressive looking guns; something I wouldn't ordinarily like to see glorified, but here they manage to make it look cool to the point I started thinking "I wonder how difficult it is to fire a sniper rifle from that distance and hit a target"... so quite some achievement!

However, the plot was slightly predictable; as far as conspiracy stories go, it wasn't anything extraordinary. It worked fairly comfortably in the context of the film, but it wasn't particularly memorable.
