In. Sniper 2 Video. Hide Spoilers. I just watched this movie. Firstly, movie is not near as good as Sniper 1. And secondly some words about this so called Serbian fighters. I'm from Slovenia and I speak Serbian language. But in this movie I didn't understand not even one word. At the end of the movie I saw this list of actors. Those names are not Serbian but Hungarian.
I don't know who I know only that he's mind doesn't work as it should said to director of this movie that Hungary and Serbia is one and the same country. It's very sad that someone is making a movie about country and he doesn't even knows basics about this country. Was this review helpful? After renting this movie by mistake, I said to myself 'how bad can it be, I'll just sit tight and give it a try'.
My dear Lord, what a mistake. I am a war movie buff myself, and I can swallow a lot of inconsistency, dumb dialogue, poor acting, thin plot and lousy sets, but this was way below the threshold. This movie was full of each, and than some. Tom Berenger is at the age when he should be enjoying his retirement benefits in Florida.
Who was he fighting at the end - Hungarians, Serbs, Muslims? I know that, by now proverbial bad guys, the Serbs which itself tells you how 'cliche' the plot was were the target, but they ended up speaking the Hungarian, and this in a scenery that screams 'This Be Happening in Hungary'.
For God's sake, do you think that the viewers are so uneducated. I could continue ranting, but the main point is, don't waste your time as I did with mine. Yes, it's not a historical drama, but credibility about the milieu is a must even for action movies, otherwise they may easily get ridiculous, like this one. Hungary is was a neighbor to ex-Yugoslavia, but never part of it. So Hungary was also absolutely out of the ethnic conflicts and remained greatly neutral throughout. We should imagine the whole movie happens in Serbia the biggest of the successor-states of ex-Yugoslaviahowever, everybody talks Hungarian, which doesn't even sound alike.
Serbian language belongs to the Slavic group of Indo-European family of Looking for some action bored after Hungary, while Hungarian belongs to the Finno-Ugric group of Ural-Altaic family.
Different grammar, different pronunciation, different intonation, different rhythm, not a word in common. It may not matter for the Americans, but Eastern Europe even tens of millions in Western Europe clearly understand the difference. On top of this, the written Serbian is using Cyrillic letters, while Hungarian is using Latin letters with certain vowels bearing special accents. Whatever is written in the street scenes of the movie - e. The Serbians are basically orthodox catholic by majority, while the Hungarians are basically Roman catholic.
The cathedral bearing a central role in the movie has no connection to anything in a typical orthodox church in Serbia. All military vehicles in the movie have Hungarian military plates.
To make a street scene, which the movie-makers believed as typical, they collected and showed all kinds of lousy Eastern-European cars even including the infamous Polish van called Zukbut no Western cars even by mistake. Such street picture was typical in Hungary up to the early 80s and in Yugoslavia up to mids, whilst the story is happening in lates. The typical Yugoslavian police car was locally built Zastava originally Fiat-based carsbut in the lates when the story is played there were already hundreds of thousands of Western cars in Yugoslavia and even the police had many. The tram-cars are of Hungarian-built UV models, never exported to any country not even to Yugoslavia and they have Hungarian route-boards installed on their noses.
You don't need to make a historical drama to be correct about elementary basics like geography, Looking for some action bored after Hungary and ethnography of your story and not to mix up everything into a terrible and greatly stereotyped mess. Being a European, it doesn't matter what is happening in the movie, you don't know whether to laugh or to cry as it is completely impossible to empathize the story under such visual and verbal circumstances. When we make a movie which story is playing in New York, we don't show agave fields instead of Central Square with people in sombreros, eating chili con carne and taco in the streets and drinking tequila in the bars, even though Mexico is the neighboring country to the USA.
So the American makers may have believed the whole world is completely stupid and believes what they think a stereotyped Eastern Europe should be, however, for us living in this region, it is like a direct insult.
So I believe it is a big mistake to play this movie in European TV channels it is also a mistake to play it in the rest of the world because it is misleading people and don't give any realistic background about real Serbian milieu, but at least non-Europeans don't know all those mistakes. Finally, compare this cheap lousy nonsense with Evita, the street scenes of which were also filmed in the streets of Budapest instead of Buenos Aires, but you cannot catch it because all details properly fit.
Big shame on the producers of Sniper-2!!! Put your mind on hold, and let Tom Berenger in! Tom Berenger is back! Very Mild Story Spoiler: Tom Berenger who is out of the army gets a visit of CIA officer and a millitary captain, to discuss about a "suicide" mission.
Tom easily admits YEAH! After that they will be dropped within enemy lines. And the rest will is for your eyes only! I feel sniper 2 is worthy sequel, ok we don't have Billy Zane anymore but Bokeem Woodbine "Cole" performed pretty well. If you can't enjoy a movie like Sniper 2 you can't shutdown your brain, and you shouldn't watch a movie like this in the first place for "the criticism".
Cool Berenger Movie! In this directors world, Serbs speak Hungarian, Budapest is capital of Serbia and Muslims have been living in eastern Europe for years. Acting does not exist. Ed Wood's "Plan 9 from outer space" has nothing on this movie. This is stupidity at it's best made by and for the Average Joe; so he has something "easy-on-the-brain" to watch when he comes home from working at the burger shack.
I am putting this as the second worst movie i have ever seen, first one being the "Dracula ". Tom makes this film, and it is a decent late night film that was intended to a b film, What surprised me was the budget, what the US dollar can get in Hugary. I mean they got tank, choppers, lots of troops, and a believable military actors. This is still a B movie, but watchable.
PS they leave room for Sniper 3 with the ending. It was a power one. Were those exploding cars Bosnian, or Serbian, or Hungarian? Okay, let's see if I got this straight Okay, we'll suspend our disbelief that there are any Muslim villages in Hungary. But if Serbia were attacking Hungary, a NATO member, the response of the West would be something more than sending over a couple of guys who look like anything but Eastern Europeans.
NATO is a mutual defense pact that comes to the defense of any member well, NATO Looking for some action bored after Hungary involved with other adventures, too, but that's a different debate. So we find out that there are opposition leaders being held without charges in prison. Wonder whether the European Union knew about this when it invited Hungary to be a candidate for EU membership?
In any case, before Hungary s the EU, it'll definitely have to do something about its product safety standards, particularly the tendency of every vehicle to explode into an enormous fireball when crashed, shot, bumped, or if its doors are slammed too hard. How big a fireball would an exploding Trabant be able to produce anyway, with its feeble East German two-stroke engine that's comparable to a lawnmower? Did anyone notice that our heroes were dropped off by a helicopter marked "SFOR", but picked up by an unmarked helicopter? One might assume there was an enormous diplomatic outcry when the Bosnia-based UN Stabilization Force SFOR exceeded its mandate by carrying out a mission that took it over Croatian or Serbian territory and into Hungary, so when they made the trip again, SFOR removed all the identifying details.
Either that or the film's continuity person fell asleep on the job. And what was up with the heroes' desperate dash for "the border"? If they were in Hungary, they were safe. If they were dashing for the Croatian or Romanian borders, they'd be safe there too. But since they were in a place where villages were being attacked by Serbia, they were presumably close to the Serbian border. Why on earth would they want to reach the Serbian border?
And who were the bad guys, anyway? Invading Serbian troops who can somehow move freely around the streets of Hungarian cities, commandeering police cars without resistance, conducting shootouts on the street without any protest from Hungarians? If anyone out there considering making "Sniper 3," please pick up a world atlas and read a few newspapers before you write the script!
The Mauser Rifle that wasn't!
But still a Good Flick! I found this movie well thought out and for the most part well executed. However, it most glaring flaw was with its technical aspects. In the scene, where the underground partisan, Sophia, brings Sgt. Beckett beneath a tavern, to a store of WWII arms. Beckett picks up a rifle and calling it a German 8mm Mauser. But in reality it is a Russian 7. I was very surprised at this and wonder who was at fault. But otherwise, I felt this film is another success for Tom Berenger.
Tomnari 29 December In this installment Beckett Berenger has been drummed out of the marines due to the finger he lost in the first film I had to go back and see if that happened -- it did. He's down on his luck and getting by as a hunting guide and by winning sniper competitions when the government contacts him.
They will give him anything to return to action and kill a rouge Eastern European general. Beckett's "anything" turns out to be his uniform and rank returned.Looking for some action bored after Hungary
