Sniper: Inside the Crosshairs torrent reviews

David D (nl) wrote: Enjoyable thriller. A few inconsistencies and continuity errors, but they can be forgiven due to the interesting story line.

Jude P (ca) wrote: Beware, many would not like to see this. Magnificently crafted psychological thriller though.

Sanjeev R (kr) wrote: Fantastic fight sequences! Michael Jai White as usual gives best performance. He is undisputed as one of the best action stars we have. Scott Adkins as Boyka is mean and delivers excellent performance! Good Movie to watch for action fans!

Calum B (au) wrote: If you are expecting this film to be a romance than skip it. It is about the extraordinary man with the ordinary name of John Brown who brought a Queen out of mourning. Not that a whole lot of gossip about Queen Victoria and her Scot's highland servant Brown wasn't bandied about in their day. That's the way it is in court politics, then and now.Judi Dench is the Queen who when this story begins was getting the unflattering nickname of the widow of Windsor. By the merest of chance in these royal arranged marriages it was arranged she should marry a cousin, Albert of Saxe-Coburg Gotha. She and Prince Albert had a good score of married years with several children. They were so happy that when Prince Albert died of typhoid fever in late 1861, Victoria went into a really lengthy mourning period beyond all normal parameters. The woman would have needed grief counseling had it been available back in her day. She shut herself up in Balmoral Castle in Scotland and made no public appearances. Nor would she allow any of her children to substitute for her, particularly the Prince of Wales. With that kind of mentality operating, a whole lot of people questioned the need even for a monarchy.Into her life comes John Brown, brother one of the household help already at Balmoral and hired to tend the Queen's horses. Billy Connolly plays the rough spoken Brown who somehow even through his tough highland talk, endears himself to his Queen with his common sense and total concern for her well being. Gaining the position he does in the Victorian household, Brown makes many enemies who try to bring him down. The period of the film covers when he arrives in the Queen service in 1866 until his death in 1883. Connolly makes a fine Brown though if the film had been made 25 years earlier, the part was made for Sean Connery.Her Majesty, Mrs. Brown gained to Oscar nominations for Judi Dench for Best Actress and for Best Makeup. Shooting on location in the royal palaces and grounds which are nicely preserved from Victoria's time, the film does have the look and feel of Victorian Great Britain and the troubled monarch who reigned over the Empire.Were she and Brown ever physical? I doubt that very much, the very practical Brown was not a stupid man and would never have pushed his luck that much. But he was a tower of strength for the woman whom he brought out of mourning to take her place which was a large one in the world.

Graydon B (us) wrote: Toy Story is one of the best animated films of all time! While it was innovative, its great cast, combined with a simple but interesting concept, as well as great humor, and memorable characters make this an unforgettable journey.

Phil H (gb) wrote: Not as good as Street Fighter II in both video game or this ani flick, the plot characters could never stand up to SFII in my opinion but I guess everyone has different preferences. The plot here is really out there and too far fetched for me, even though you gotta expect that with this genre this plot has very little actual street fighting and more supernatural stuff going on which is not really what I wanted to see but hey never mind. Basically SFII beats this in every area including drawing/art and animation but its still worth alook.

Josh L (de) wrote: Bad history in a French language film that is badly dubbed and subbed into English. The plot seems to lumber at times. However, it makes a masterful use of symbolism in general and artfully draws parallels between 1790s France and 1980s Poland. Should be studied by film students; a mixed bag for everyone else.

Weul S (jp) wrote: the mundanity of the life of a widowed mother turned prostitute are displayed before the viewer in painstakingly real-time portrayal. an experimental & complex film that is both immersive & minimalist, it is apparently a feminist manifesto in certain cinematic circles. however, I found the minutiae taxing, even if the ending did deliver a slight payoff. women can be complex in film without being this goddamn boring.

Allan C (br) wrote: Sergio Leone is one of m all-time favorite directors and I'd actually never seen his first film, which I'd always read was nothing special and this sword-and-sandal epic lived up to that reputation. There are glimpses of the great filmmaker Leone would become with his next film "A Fistful of Dollars" with some nicely framed shots and some well staged action sequences, but this film is missing the elegance of his later films and also some of his more outlandish camera movements and zooms. Overall, it's a pretty standard sword-and-sandal flick that's only slightly better than average.
