SNIPER: GHOST SHOOTER REVIEWED
“Sniper: Ghost Shooter” is a family affair, as Berenger’s character’s kid takes over the titular role. Thankfully, he has Billy Zane and Dennis Haysbert to bail him out. This entry lacks any substantial threat for our heroes. But, the lead sniper is having to face off with a Ghost Sniper attacking the soldiers he’s protecting. As the oil pipeline stretches on and tensions grow on, will our sniper be able to save. Given that it’s a DTV action flick, moral ambiguity and unclear endings don’t factor into the equation.
While the Ghost Shooter of the film has the complexity of a Call of Duty lower level boss, it’s still a fun afternoon wasting time. I just can’t call it anything substantial. The B-Movie crowd will eat up the film, but it’s nothing to remember. Take that for what you will.

The Plot Thus Far
Elite snipers Brandon Beckett (Chad Michael Collins) and Richard Miller (Billy Zane) are fighting extremists in the Middle East when Colonel (Dennis Haysbert) gives them a new mission: to protect a gas pipeline stretching from the Republic of Georgia to Western Europe from extremists eager to make a political statement. But when skirmishes with the enemy lead to U.S. snipers being killed by a ghost shooter who locks into their exact location, a security breach is suspected. Fingers are pointed and battle lines are drawn, all leading up to an explosive climax.
