The Underrated 2007 Action Thriller Blowing Up The Netflix Charts Right Now

A product of its time, “Shooter” is a post-9/11 conspiracy thriller that goes into full bozo territory, making it a satisfying entry in Mark Wahlberg’s expansive filmography. The actor stars as Sergeant Bob Lee Swagger (yes, that’s his real name), a sniper in self-imposed exile who is roped back into the military-industrial complex after learning about an assassination attempt on the president. Things get complicated when Mr. Swagger is framed for the crime and has to go on a manhunt to find the real killer. 

The film is special for the lead actor, with Wahlberg saying he would do a “Shooter” sequel for one specific reason. In addition to Wahlberg, the cast includes Michael Peña as an FBI agent, Danny Glover as a military boss, and a pre-“House of Cards” Kate Mara. “Shooter” has developed a passionate following, especially after it blew up on home media. Fans might not know that the film is based on Stephen Hunter’s novel “Point of Impact”; the character of Lee Swagger has a considerable literary presence, appearing in a dozen books. The success of “Shooter” eventually led to USA Network commissioning a television adaptation of the film and Hunter’s novels. Produced by Wahlberg, the action series ran for three seasons. Stateside, the series can be watched in its entirety on Tubi.
