The Shooter

Curtis and I went out on a date Sunday. We left the bambino with his grandma to use our free movie passes from Christmas. After splitting some orange chicken at Panda Express, we saw The Shooter. It was a better movie than we expected. If you like blow-em-up-shoot-em-ups, then this is a good one to see. Morgan Freeman and Mark Wahlburg (looking deliciously buff) both put in good performances. The plot was suspenseful and wasn't completely predictable. Writing was good with some fairly snappy dialogue. The best part, of course, was the really big guns (lots of sniper rifles) and really big explosions. Cars, houses, napalm, and two helicopters all made great, big fireballs over the two hours of the movie. 4 out of 5 stars.
