Storyline

A Special Ops Military Force, led by Sergeant Vic Mosby (Tim Abell) with an expert sniper Sergeant Jake Chandler (Steven Seagal) as "Over Watch" during a special mission are sent to a remote Afghan village to extract an American Congressman being held by the Taliban. The rescue mission is a success, but Jake, separated after a firefight with the enemy, stays behind to help an injured soldier. Sergeant Vic Mosby desperately tries to convince Lieutenant Colonel Jackson (Dale Dye) to let him go back and save the soldiers, but is ordered on a mission to retrieve a truckload of munitions which could be vital for the military base. In direct violation of orders, Vic and his Special Ops Team decide to head back to the village to rescue the stranded soldiers. Outnumbered and out gunned, Vic and his men engage in a massive shootout against the enemy, while Jake uses his expert skills to help save them all from certain death. Written by Raymond Gray

Wish it was better but it is not.
17 August 2017 | by evanbeijnumSee all my reviews

After seeing this movie I asked myself why I keep watching Steven Seagal movies? Because honestly Sniper: Special Ops is not good. Actually it is quite bad even for a Steven Seagal movie (if you consider Steven Seagal movies as a genre).

The action scenes are poor so do not expect cool hand to hand combat scenes; there are merely guns that are shooting. But maybe it is a bit strange to expect some fighting from an actor who is an Aikido master (Seagal) and the other one a WWE wrestler (Van Dam)? The story line could be more simplified as there are now too many loose ends. Why didn't they focus on one story line? Also in my opinion there was also a bit too much talking instead of ass kicking action. Good thing is that film has a 83 minute running time so you continue with your life.

Having said that - I also feel kind of disappointed how this films is presented. I do not have issues with Steven Seagal in a minor role, but please do not put only Seagal on the DVD cover as if he is the lead actor. Secondly, I saw also that some DVD covers are containing the name Seagal and Van Dam; I guess they want us to think that Van Dam is Jean-Claude Van Damme. Very sneaky! And lastly -the name Sniper: Special Ops reminds me a little too much of the Tom Berenger Sniper movies.

I guess the answer to the question why I still look Steven Seagal movies is, is that he made some great action movies in the past (Above the Law, Marked for Death) which are dear to me. Even some of the direct to video/DVD I can appreciate (Pistol Whipped, Urban Justice). So I hope I can still expect still some decent movies from him. Please Steven - do not let them exploit you. And in the next movie please play who you are now and not someone who you wanted to be!
