Top Ten Hollywood Sniper MoviesFinch When it comes to military personnel, few people are as romanticized as the lonely sniper. The same is true in military and war movies.
Snipers are an elite class of any military force and have been getting more and more recognition as of late. Their skill set is in high demand yet there are few that can rise to the challenges required by this highly-trained force.
While there have been many documentaries covering the training, deployment, and history of snipers, this list only covers the Hollywood-produced movies. Often drawing in big name actors and actresses, big budget war/military movies involving a sniper as a leading character tend to bring a personal touch to the horrors or conflict.
Below are the best of these movies.
The Top Ten
One of the original sniper movies, Tom Berenger gives us a taste of special ops ala sniper.
Classic jungle creeping.
The best sniper movie ever made
Not so good
Guys, after this movie I watched it over and over and it apparently never seems to get old. They need to continue the movie and make a shooter 2. They definitely need to keep Mark in it because after watching it, you can't look at him the same again and say "He's just another actor." I mean, he nailed that movie (in a good way) if you know what I mean. He was just flat out beast.
This movie is unbelievably amazing. Wahlberg really delivers as Bob Lee Swagger, and Michael Pena is also amazing. What I found striking about the movie is the many angles on who Swagger is. He's not just a trigger finger. Reminded me a little of The Fugitive
Mark Wahlberg as a sniper. What's not to love? You get a taste of life after military service/combat where a sniper's skills can still come in handy.

This is the greatest sniper movie I have ever seen basically because it's a real patriotic movie and is a true story
This is absolutely the best Sniper movie ever made. Also a very very great movie depicting how horrifying warfare is and what consequences it has. Definitely should have been No. 1
Hands down the best & the most realistic sniper movie of all time since it's heavily based on Chris Kyle life Story.
One of best sniper movies everV 4 Comments
A different perspective from WWII, this film has a reluctant soldier becoming a national hero - all through the scope of his rifle.
It's an amazing movie with a beautifully constructed deep plot, far from the cheesy Hollywood crap AKA (Sniper)
I really love this amazing movie - Ananya
Awesome movie. I think it's a real storyV 4 Comments
This is a film showing the modern war (modern as of 1991) and the role infantry has - almost none. Still the training scenes and mental tension held by soldiers, snipers in particular, is witnessed throughout the movie.
Great movie a must have
What a nice Sniper movie.
While the main character isn't a sniper, without the help of one, the band of heroes wouldn't make it very far.
This is not a sniper movie anyone who knows anything about firearms would say so
Jackson should have lived screw you Spielberg
This is the best movie I ever seen @_@V 2 Comments
Not many sequels make a Top Tens list but this one is worth a watch for the sniper's point of view.
Waaw this is the best film I think
This is by far the best Sniper movie sequel till now. It is just nice an action movie. The sniper scenes are really good.
Not so good
A sort of obscure Asian film, even with the subtitles it is worth the watch.
One of the best sniper movies outside Hollywood.V 1 Comment
Although the main character (Rambo) isn't a sniper, the group of mercenaries he teams up with has one and he's pretty awesome. There's a small side-plot where the sniper runs his own show.
Who are you
Excellent action and suspense.
Best movie I ever saw
A movie based on understanding a sniper gone bad.
A movie that will leave you thrilledV 1 Comment
While the movie isn't really an action film nor is the protagonist a sniper, the plot centers around the making of a specialized sniper rifle. Pretty interesting to see the other side of assassination through a scope.
Seen this twice - extremely enjoyable. Even more mysterious if you don't know who voices the caller.
