Mark Wahlberg plays Marine Gunnery Sergeant Bobby Lee Swagger in this 2007 ass-kicking nonstop action/thriller. There's a lot of killing, understandably, but the movie screams from beginning to end.
Bobby Lee is an expert sniper used for undercover ops by the Marines. After leaving the service, he is recruited by a government agency to advise on protecting the president from an assassination attempt. Unfortunately, the deal is a setup, and he finds himself on the run being accused of accidentally killing a visiting dignitary while trying to kill the president.
This thing never slows down, and it's great fun. Sure, the story line in one form or the other has been done before, but that doesn't stop it from being great entertainment. Wahlberg and the whole cast do a great job, and I highly recommend this movie.

Yeah, this was a great flick. Wahlberg used to get flack for being "Marky Mark", but since I saw him in "Four Brothers" (another great flick), he's been pretty damn good. He was great in "The Departed".
And Kate Mara and Rhona Mitra were both good. Danny Glover well-played a real SOB in this one, too.
And the sniping technigues seemed realistic.
All in all, a great movie.
