"Sniper" is a 1993 action film starring Tom Berenger and Billy Zane as American military snipers on an assassination mission in Panama.

Plot

Thomas Beckett (Berenger) is an experienced U.S. Marine sniper. After losing several spotters in combat missions, he is paired up with the contrastingly inexperienced, and civilian, Richard Miller (Zane). Their goal: to eliminate a Panamanian drug lord.

Miller is a SWAT team sharpshooter but lacks combat experience and has no confirmed kills to his name. As well as providing the action of the mission, the film focuses on the relationship between the two men and how their differing backgrounds affect their approaches to the job in hand.

Weapons

In the movie, Beckett uses an M40, Miller uses an SR9T, and the enemy sniper uses a Dragunov Sniper Rifle.

equels

Sniper spawned two sequels. The TV movie "Sniper 2" in 2003 and the direct to video "Sniper 3" in 2004.
