Shooter (2007)

8. Shooter (2007)

4 of 11

Mark Wahlberg carried this 2007 film with hushed dignity.  Shooter was a very unconventional film as it blended action, international intrigue, a bizarre (yet perfect) cast and a sniper who lived so far in the backwoods that only the FBI dared tread on his property.  Wahlberg displayed that he didn’t need to cram testosterone and tough comebacks to lead an action film, instead taking the route of quiet vengeance — not unlike Liam Neeson’s performances of recent roles.
