The Shooter

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

While Jean-Claude Van Damme, his erstwhile rival in the Euro Action Hero stakes, ploughs on in A-picture productions, Dolph Lundgren, who showed greater acting range when they were paired in Universal Soldier, gets stuck in dreck like this. In a nod to thawing East-West relations, this action adventure is set in Prague on the dawn of a US-Cuban summit, where feelings are running high after the murder of Castro's ambassador to New York. Enter Lundgren's Czech-born CIA man, teamed with his former agency mentor (Ashton) and given the task of tracking down the alleged assassin, Detmers' Gallic femme fatale. Very dull.
