Shooter: All you must know about this action thriller film

by Ratan Srivastava

Shooter is indeed a 2007 action thriller film directed by Antoine Fuqua as well as written by Jonathan Lemkin, modeled on Stephen Hunter’s 1993 novel Point of Impact. Bob Lee Swagger (Mark Wahlberg), a Force Recon veteran, is accused for homicide by a renegade squad of men working for a private military business. Michael Pea, Danny Glover, Kate Mara, Levon Helm, as well as Ned Beatty all feature in the movie. Lorenzo di Bonaventura produced that through Di Bonaventura Pictures, as well as Paramount Pictures distributed it in the United States on March 23, 2007.

Gunnery Sergeant Bob Lee Swagger of the United States Marine Corps is on a mission in Ethiopia alongside his spotter as well as comrade Corporal Donnie Fenn. They assist an allied convoy in avoiding enemy fire, but are then abandoned within hostile territory, where Fenn is murdered in a confrontation with enemy militia troops.

Swagger, now a disillusioned retiree, is residing in self-imposed isolation in an isolated log cabin three years later. Retired US Army Colonel Isaac Johnson and his workers analyse Swagger’s combat operation report as well as DD Form 214 there at office of an unknown private military corporation in Langley, Virginia.

Johnson seeks Swagger’s help in thwarting a planned murder attempt on the president of the United States. Johnson sends Swagger a list of potential assassination sites, and after inspecting all three, Swagger decides that Independence Hall in Philadelphia is the most plausible.

When some other speaker, an Ethiopian archbishop, is slain while walking alongside the president the day of the president’s address, Swagger is acting with Johnson’s men to foil the murderer. Swagger is deceived once he is shot multiple times by a corrupt Philadelphia cop, however he tries to get away. Swagger is falsely accused of being the assassin by the conspirators, as well as a manhunt starts.

Swagger subdues Nick Memphis, an inexperienced Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, as well as steals his service gun and automobile, which he crashes into the Delaware River. To elude pursuit, he then climbs to the top of a barge moving upstream.

Swagger recovers enough from his injuries to steal a vehicle and go to Kentucky, where he seeks safety with Donnie’s widow, Sarah. He persuades her to assist him in informing Agent Memphis about the scheme.

Memphis has been blamed for Swagger’s escape and also is facing punishment, however he contends to his bosses that, considering Swagger’s training as well as competence, it is odd that the president lived while the archbishop standing nearby was slain. He suspects Swagger of being framed for the assassination, and his suspicions are confirmed when he discovers that perhaps the police officer who shot Swagger was killed not long after.

The conspirators dispatch mercenaries to capture Memphis as well as fabricate his suicide when they discover his extraordinarily effective research is poised to reveal their plot.

Swagger, on the other hand, arrives as well as kills the guys who kidnapped Memphis, who then joins him as an ally. Swagger and Memphis go to see a retired weapons expert, which explains the FBI’s phoney ballistics report and lists persons who could take a shot like the assassin. They hear from another FBI agent that now the real assassin is hiding out at a Virginia rural house, which they infiltrate.

After disclosing that the archbishop was the intended target, the assassin kills himself to prevent him from revealing US complicity in the killing of an Eritrean hamlet carried out on the orders of a consortium of multinational oil interests led by corrupt US Senator Charles Meachum. Swagger records the assassin’s confession, then instantly engages and defeats Johnson’s oncoming mercenary gang in a brutal firefight — the same soldiers Swagger and Donnie were protecting in Eritrea.

Meanwhile, Swagger has been kidnapped by some of Johnson’s thugs in order to pull him out of hiding. Swagger and Memphis flee to Bozeman, Montana, as well as phone Johnson to set up a rendezvous to trade Sarah for such assassin’s confession recording. They decided to meet on a glacier with in Rocky Mountains alongside Meachum. After Johnson as well as Meachum approach, Swagger shoots all three mercenary snipers stationed all-around site. However, investigators from the FBI borrow helicopters from Malmstrom Air Force Base near Great Falls. Swagger and Memphis save Sarah, but rather than handing up the video, Swagger destroys it, claiming that leaving it in Johnson’s hands will result in more fatalities. As the FBI agents arrive via helicopters, Meachum departs. Swagger and Memphis surrender to the FBI agents.
