Elite snipers Brandon Beckett (Chad Michael Collins) and Richard Miller (Billy Zane) are fighting extremists in the Middle East when Colonel (Dennis Haysbert) gives them a new mission: to protect a gas pipeline stretching from the Republic of Georgia to Western Europe from terrorists eager to make a political statement. But when skirmishes with the enemy lead to U.S. snipers being killed by a ghost shooter who locks into their exact location, a security breach is suspected. Fingers are pointed and battle lines are drawn, all leading up to an explosive climax.

Explicit violence, language in gun-glorifying action flick.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Sniper: Ghost Shooter is the sixth installment in the Sniper action film series, which started in the 1990s. As the title suggests, it's a military-focused story that's all about blowing away villains, and it has explicit violence, including a child preparing to behead a hostage, a close-up of a throat being slit, and a woman being shot through the head. You don't have to have seen the previous films to follow this one's "plot." Really, it's just a sequence of high-carnage battle scenes in which American armed forces shoot and kill Middle Eastern and Eastern European enemies in the bloodiest way possible, strung together by a suit-wearing officer who barks out assignments and orders. Masculinity is associated with gun power. And the disturbing "lesson" given to the sniper is to not hesitate or ask questions, just shoot -- including women and children who may or may not have ill intent. While there's racial, ethnic, and gender diversity in the elite hero unit, two of the three women are portrayed in a sexual light (one makes a crude comment about herself), and almost everyone in the field who isn't White, male, and American gets shot, caught, or killed. Expect strong language, especially "s--t show" and "f--k," and drinking, plus smoking throughout.
