This evening I saw the movie “Shooter” at JP Theater, Causeway Bay.
Even the poster used in Hong Kong theaters had the Bourne Identity feel.
The Bourne Identity resemblance was not the reason I gave it 3 penguins. The acting was amateurish, the story was weak. There were many areas that were not believable.
Danny Glover of Lethal Weapon fame had some sort of lisp every time he spoke. Aside from him many of the actors’ dialogs were hard to understand. Making me want to seek the Chinese subtitles for clarification. Unfortunately, I cannot read Chinese well enough, so I missed most of the dialogs in the movie, causing me to guess what was going on based on the action.
If it was not for the mediocre entertainment value I would have given it 2 penguins.
