The Shooter

When does a 10 year movie look like today? When it is true. Fiction is reality in Washington and the FBI


TOPICS:
KEYWORDS: fbi; movie
Just finished watching the movie, The Shooter 2007. There is a frightening line in the movie where the second in command of the FBI is trying to get Nick Memphis, rookie FBI agent to come in. Second in command says to Nick, "We're the FBI, you can trust us." The FBI is not an organization that you can trust today either.

Sounds like “Day of the Condor”. Come on in Jack, we have cookies.

The movie is a go-to

The Levon helm is good

The themes are solid the writer Stephen hunter is very good. Good scenery. Good villains. Nick memphis is great. The corruption of the fbi is done well the dialogue is good

“Got a crown Vic.
Black’

“Dead guy in the back seat”

Gesture negative

Ironically, Mark Wahlberg, who kicks asses in the swamp is also a devout Christian and pro-Trump in real life.

We watched if for the first time yesterday. When it was over, we both thought - gosh that sounds like today!

My favorite scene is what happened to the Ned Beatty character after he uttered his last words.

Bobby Lee stole an auto. From an FBI agent. This was the make and model
