THis might be a stupid question...but...is this movie about the Marines at all?

This movie is about a Marine Senion Master Sargent (sniper) that is assigned one last mission. His new spotter is a civilian marksman that is in "command". The mission is technically and logistically difficult. You can imagine what happens.

Sandra....The Marine Corp is part of the movie, but not the central feature.

Great Action filled movie but wrong choice of weaponary used in the various scenes and logic of logistic tactics with those scenes since they would be detected the minute the
first shot was fired....one shot one " Kill " at close range by sniper standards in the field without a silincer / flash unit @ the end of the barrel ....which is advertising your position.
Likewise the scope cap which protected the telescope was flipped in such a away to reflect any sun light reflecting
and sun light reflecting off it....not in a miilion years would a Sniper do such a stupid trick....advertising his postion. The same for the scene at the plantation with 50 hombres with Ak's running around with guard dogs. This is where they should have brought in the 50 Caliber Sniper Rifle and sat back 1 mile since it is accurate at 1.3 miles and deadly.....and not have to worry if you hit a vital organ or a head shot.....hit your subject anywhere in upper body ..and it is a " Kill Shot" because half the body would be gone. If
the shot is to the chest area...it would leave only the lower torso......a pair of legs and a butt.

I hope Sniper 2 is better than Sniper 1 in the choice of weapons needed for those scenes since this was a covert operation backed by what seems to be a CIA kill for political purposes and exploitation of action and plot.

Actually...they should of used a combination in that scene at the Plantation for realism.....1 smart guided bomb @ 50,000 ft..laser guided and the spotter aiming the laser for the Kill and the Sniper to make sure Kill was do effectively at a distance of 1 mile with a 50 Cliber Sniper Rifle.

This way he would still have his trigger finger !!!!!!

This is the 50 Caliber bmg Sniper Rifle they should have used in this movie with the Plantation Scene where they had at least 50 enemy guards around the Plantation and
watch dogs......LOL...this piece breaks down into a small
lethal package and deadly within a mile distance away.

It also would make sense...you don't stir up a hornet's nest with that many enemy at close range ..right under their noses....so to speak!!!!!

http://www.50-bng.com/50.htm this should have been the
Sniper Rifle used in this segment of the movie since it is
the weapon of choice for any covert operation...LOL
