Three movies in, and still an enjoyable franchise...

Well for a third movie in the franchise, then I will say that writers J. S. Cardone and Ross Helford actually managed to pull it off well enough. And oddly enough then I have actually never sat down to watch "Sniper 3" before now in 2022.

The storyline in "Sniper 3" was interesting and well-written, despite the fact that it was deviating rather far from the concept of the whole thing about being a sniper. This was more of an actual ordinary action movie. So if you're expecting more of the things that the 1993 original movie had to offer, then you're in for a rude awakening.

I actually enjoyed the storyline here, as it added more layers to the Thomas Beckett character (played by Tom Berenger) and made him a more well-rounded and fleshed out characters. And the writers did so in a very pleasing and fulfilling manner.

"Sniper 3" is a good combination of storytelling, action and character development, so there is a little of just about everything for anyone watching the movie.

Something I don't understand is why they didn't even attempt to make it look like the movie was taking place in Vietnam. I mean, the Thai language sign posts and store fronts just was a dead give-away that the movie was most definitely not actually filmed in Vietnam, but filmed in Chiang Mai.

Anyway, "Sniper 3" is an entertaining and enjoyable movie, so director P. J. Pesce managed to put the script to the screen in a wholesome and enjoyable way.

My rating of "Sniper 3" lands on a six out of ten stars.

Full circle

The third stop in the series. Likely Tom Berenger's last go round. A story that nicely comes full circle, Sniper 3 ends up being the next best thing to the original and far and away the best sequel. The original established mood, tone, character and such. I like it a lot, good flick. Sniper 2 didn't do much right in my book. It's sole asset was its brief expansion on Beckett's character. Finally what is there to say about Sniper 4; aka Reloaded? Hi Billy Zane, maybe? Nice to see Miller again.

I won't rundown the story to Sniper 3 like it's epic. It's not, but besides being serviceable - it opens up plenty on Beckett's character, background and isn't that what we tune in for at this point in the road? Yes, the return to it's jungle roots (so to speak) is welcomed, the supporting cast is decent and the sniping portions of the movie feel right, but Beckett's up and down slope is this sequel's strongest asset. Weak spots? Every sequel has dealt lies and predictable betrayal and this one's no different. Oh and taking out a rival sniper with a handgun from quite a distance. That scene made me wince.

The casual moviegoer can rightfully be excused for perceiving Sniper 3 as nothing more than another dtv offering, but fans of the series will want to give it a go. I enjoyed the opening and the finale's efficient ending with what I perceived to be a wink and nod to the original. I went in with lowered expectations because of Sniper 2, but 3 delivered. A good bookend to Beckett's saga.

One more shot, one more kill...

An American action adventure; A story about a decorated Master Gunnery Sgt who hunts down his best friend, believed to be dead, who has become a dangerous spy and criminal mastermind attempting to manipulate the USA. This third installment in the Sniper series, set in Vietnam, focuses more on moral dilemmas and plot but it is less adventurous despite the double crosses, gun fire, chases and all the action expected from a routine sequel. The story has a good premise and the third act confrontation holds intrigue.
