Seagal is the subplot who basically sits and looks out a window, occasionally reading a line in monotone.

The action never seems to leave the same few streets and, while the direction is okay, it's far from exciting or thrilling.

Boring dialogues, flat characters.

The chief problem with this contrived, standard-issue actioneer is its utter lack of urgency.

The dialogue consisted of cliche lines when good.

Every part of Seagal being in that movie was annoying, from his dark-dyed goatee, lame attitude, lazy acting, boring vocabulary, and lack of Seagal action.

Rather watch paint dry.

He sweaty partner is a walking (pun intended) cliché, talking about being back home and blah blah blah, and Seagal sits there, in his sunglasses saying nothing.

One of Seagal's worst films, unbelievable cast, bored actors and non-existent budget spell disaster .

Sniper Special Ops is an OK entertaining movie.

I think I've seen about every war movie that there is to find, and i can honest to God say that this is the worst movie i've ever seen and the one reason why i bothered to watch all of it was to see how low things would get.

Later, Jackson explains that the Congressman was on a fact-finding mission "to prove that all our efforts are just a waste of time and money.

For a B movie with a decent budget, it was acceptable and enjoyable.

The movies story is the same inconsistent drivel seen in numerous other C-Pictures, boring, predictable and so cheaply made it hurts.

Netflix subscribers often overlook one of the best perks for having subscribed to their monthly movie streaming library that being, the ability to access & screen prospective movies of interest without being charged a (per movie) fee, and for men w the remote-control in hand, fast- forward boring sections or toggle over to another flick altogether Btw, the IMDb database denotes that Sniper: Special Ops is 1.24 hours long, which then means that, during our viewing experience, we fast-forwarded no less than a solid 45 minutes of this movie, {due to elongated scenes, dysfunctional editing, rushed takes, inept continuity, spotty acting...

This is the kind of thriller that "Bourne Supremacy" director Paul Greengrass could had injected a surfeit of intense energy into each incident and made our teeth rattle with every shot.

In a sense, "Sniper, Special Ops" channels World War II Allied propaganda features.

It's a fairly competent film with good action sequences and a decent enough plot but it becomes quite slow moving in the middle mainly down to editing so the pacing was off a little.

Have minimal dialogue and deliver it in a low, slow, mumbling voice (check), and 3.

This is one of the worst movies in human history .

What a waste of time.
