Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 01/25/1993
"...Expertly directed....Under Llosa's careful hand, the presentation is taut and lean..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 01/29/1993
"...SNIPER expresses a cool competence that is a pleasure to watch....It's interesting the way this one grabs us through its command of the locations and its storytelling skill..."

Product Description:

Sergeant Tom Beckett finds himself saddled with an inexperienced partner on a dangerous assignment to track down and eliminate a Colombian drug lord. As they stalk their prey deep into the jungles of Panama they each recognize a version of himself in the other and hopefully will use that to their advantage before time runs out.

Plot Synopsis:

When the American government launches a covert operation to depose an opposition leader in Panama, they team a veteran army marksman with a greenhorn sniper who is unproven on the battlefield to do the dirty work. The kid is arrogant at first, and virtually ignored by the jaded older soldier who's seen-it-all-before. But the stark reality of murder, even at a distance, is too much for the young man to bear. His fear and uncertainty end up putting the entire mission in jeopardy -- and his veteran partner may be the one who pays the greatest price.

Production Notes:

  • This film should not be confused with "The Sniper" (1952), which stars Adolphe Menjou and directed by Edward Dmytryck.
  • William Curtin is credited as the film's military advisor and "armourer". Major Tom D. Ferran III was the "sniper" advisor.
  • Luis Llosa previously directed three U.S./Peruvian co-productions for Roger Corman's company, Concorde/New Horizon Pictures: "Hour of the Assassin" (1987), "Crime Zone" (1989) and "Fire on the Amazon" (1991). Llosa is the cousin of Peruvian novelist (and former presidential candidate) Mario Vargas Llosa.
  • Rated BBFC 15 by the British Board of Film Classification.
