Customer Review :
1.) If the purpose of a review is to help another person decide if
a particular show is worth their time then lets start down that
First after watching a few episodes I decided to watch the 2007
film with Mark Wahlberg since other reviewers kept bringing it up.
After seeing 6 episodes, I think this series is better. First,
Wahlberg did not have a family and the interaction with his buddy's
ex-wife in the movie was more than a little strange. The actress
who plays Phillippe's wife in the series, Shantel VanSanten, is
extremely convincing as the dedicated, girl-next-door type. If I
were wrongly accused of killing someone, I would definitely want
her on my side. The plot has enough twists and turns to keep it
interesting, the violence is not overly graphic and the language is
not offensive. So if you like action-adventure with a fair amount
of redemption and the righting of wrongs, you should enjoy Shooter.
Each episode has been better than the one before and I am looking
forward to the next.
2.)Thrill ride with plenty of good characters. Each are being delved
into their histories and what makes them tick. Love the strength of
Bob Lee and his wife's relationship. They trust and have faith in
one another no matter what is being said to the opposite or how the
circumstances appear. This is a good one for sure. Ryan Phillippe
has nailed this role. Already it's been renewed for season 2 before
season 1 has even ended.
3.) I read all the Bobby Lee Swagger books and shooter was as exciting
as reading the book. Ryan Philippe plays as good of an action
character as Jason Bourne or Jack Bauer. If there is a season 2, I
am all in!
The only thing that was not realist was Bob Lee calling the FBI
agent and his wife on their personal cell phones. Characters like
Jason Bourne and Jack Bauer used disposable burner phones. Bob Lee
called on a burner phone. His wife should have used one too to make
it realistic. That is the only bad thing I can I can think of.
