Directed by: Luis Llosa

Starring: Aden Young, Billy Zane, J.T. Walsh, Tom Berenger

Genres: Action, Drama

Trivia: The movie Sniper is actually a factual story loosely based on the biography of a United States Marine Corp Sgt. Carlos Hathcock. Sgt. Hathcock was a sniper during the Vietnam war. A book called "Marine Sniper" written by Charles Henderson has the same stories where Tom Beringer crawls across the field to get into range to shoot the drug lord and also where Berenger is stalked by the enemy sniper where he shoots him the other sniper and the bullet goes through the rifle scope. Those two scenes actually happened in real life.

Continuity mistake: After the bad guys shoots the pilot, blood squirts onto the window. However the next shot shows the chopper heading down (with the dead pilot) but there is no blood on the window. (00:19:55)
