Comparison
12 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

I was disappointed that Mark Wahlberg failed in bringing the movie of 2007 to a series. The movie, by comparison, came off as real.

The series (I watched series 1 - won't continue) seems to endeavour to change the slant the movie so excellently brought forth - that if people with power aren't kept in check they tend to become corrupt.

We had a dirty Colonel Johnson (Danny Glover) and and even dirtier Meachum (Ned Beatty) who's performances completely overshadow the plastic performances of those in the series. Mark Wahlberg was excellent as Bob Lee. Ryan feels almost like a model - soft and uncertain trying his best to be macho. The series does it's best to pretend that all the baddies are actually understandably the way they are - building the subtext that "anyone can become a crazy killer, even the placid housewife next door". The movie however, had clear cut baddies.

Maybe the series is trying to squirt whipped cream over the damage the movie did to the image of those in government.

Religion was also absent in the movie. Very cheesily done.

The writing doesn't compare. The direction doesn't compare. The actors as well as their characters are not believable.

Shooter was a great movie. The series is the opposite.
