Sniper, The

General info
Original title: Sun Cheung Sau (神枪手)
Country: Hong Kong
Year: 2009
IMDB Rating: 5.6 962 votes
Plot: Hartmann (Richie Ren) is renowned as the top shooter in the police force. But behind his legend lies a skeleton in the closet: his psychopathic, former teammate Ching (Huang Xiaoming), who was jailed for accidentally killing a hostage, has just been released. Their twisted rivalry comes to a head with Ching determined to take on Hartman and the police, believing they are the real culprits for his fall.

When a high-security prisoner transfer is sabotaged by a mysterious sniper and a major convict has escaped, Ming and his team are dispatched to profile the suspect. OJ (Edison Chen), the hot-headed rookie on the team, surprises everyone by accurately replicating the suspect’s impossible shots. Ming sees the potential in this youngster and decides to take him under his wing. Yet when OJ becomes fascinated by Ching and determines to top his shooting skills, he might become another wild card on the loose.

Meanwhile, Ching continues his plan with the largest heist ever in the city. Believing that Ming had withheld key evidence that could free him, Ching decides to lure his target in by holding Ming’s daughter as hostage and re-enacting that fateful day. It is the ultimate showdown amongst three expert snipers in the Hong Kong cityscape…

Featured reviews for

Sniper, The
LoveHKfilm, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews_2/sniper.html
«Not a s good as Dante Lam's Beast Stalker, but considering the film's tortuous path to the screen, it would be wrong to expect that. ... Sniper is a good action film for admirers of the male form because there's plenty of shots of shirtless, sweaty guys running, shooting, and yelling at one another at varying camera speeds.»
movieXclusive.com, by Linus Tee source: http://www.moviexclusive.com/review/thesniper/thesniper.htm
«"The Sniper" is an easily accessible no-nonsense action thriller with none of the pretext for unnecessary narratives and subplots. Fans of the action genre will not be disappointed. »
A Nutshell Review, by Stefan S source: http://anutshellreview.blogspot.com/2009/04/sniper-sun-cheung-sau.html
«What I appreciated is Dante Lam's fusion of that psychological element a sniper brings to the table, of the ability of how one man well hidden, and well trained, can take out a platoon or company, because of that element of fear that is introduced.»
The Hollywood Reporter, by Elizabeth Kerr source: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/film-reviews/film-review-the-snipe~~~0.story
«Standard actioner that recalls the glory days of the so-called bullet ballet.»
