We gave it a B+

Mark Wahlberg plays a sniper betrayed by a very unfunky bunch of villains (led by Glover) in the conspiracy thriller, Shooter. The real attactions are Training Day auteur Antoine Fuqua’s assured, muscular direction and a nicely bizarre cameo from The Band‘s Levon Helm. EXTRAS Neither Fuqua’s dull commentary nor the deleted scenes add much. More notable is the making-of doc ”Survival of the Fittest,” which reveals that — Marky Mark hatas, take note — Wahlberg’s preproduction training enables him to shoot people from 1,000 yards away.
