More Details

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.

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.

Reviews:
"...Expertly directed....Under Llosa's careful hand, the presentation is taut and lean..." - 01/25/1993 Variety


"...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..." - 01/29/1993 Chicago Sun-Times, p.37
