Just finished watching it and I must say it was surprisingly good! Not the best movie ever of course, but well worth the time to watch. Great action, good insight into the sniper mind, and a pretty decent plot to boot.

And hell, can't say no to any movie with Kate Mara in it, right? :drool:

Really?? I thought it pretty much sucked... The plot was naive at best and Danny glovers lisp (sp?) was driving me up the wall.

That was strange! I just saw it and kind of liked it, it's a action film but they do a good job of making you relate to the Good guys and hate the bad guys

I actually said "FUCK YEAH!" When Glover got shot in the throat
The whole sniper thing was a nice change too and gave the shooting scenes something different over all the other "Ex-Military guys kills the bad guys" movies

I thought the movie was very entertaining. The shootings scenes were fantastic. Kate Mara was hot, and so was Rhona Mitra.

I liked it as well. Sure it's not going to win any Academy Awards but it was still a fun movie. Now i have to go read the book it was based off of. oh and Kate Mara was hot.

WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS

I thought it was alright, but far from great. A lot of the pieces were taken right out the Borne Identity. Shoot, Mark Walburg even looks a bit like Matt Damon...

The government conspiracy factor was a bit over-the-top and is it just me, or did they never explain why they wanted to frame him? Perhaps I missed it. In any case, I found the plot to be weak sauce.

A good movie for you if you like seeing lots of explosions and bad guys getting kicked in the face and pummeled by machine guns :rolleyes:

They framed him because he made survived the attack in the beginning. He wasn't supposed to survive that. They figured since he survived the first attack they'd take advantage of him and do their dirty work at the same time. 2 birds 1 stone type of thing.

Great movie. I do agree that the plot is not very believable, but it doesn't really matter to me. Seeing Swagger basically kicking everyone's ass is pretty cool, and the sniping shots are fantastic. 8/10.
