Shooter stars Ryan Phillippe in the role played by Mark Wahlberg in the film. The film itself is based on a novel by Stephen Hunter called Point of Impact.

Shooter follows the courageous journey of Swagger, a highly-decorated ex-marine sniper who is coaxed back into action after he learns about a plot to kill the President. When Swagger’s former commanding officer Isaac Johnson (Omar Epps) solicits his expertise in a clandestine operation, Swagger re-emerges from exile only to discover that he is inextricably involved in a disastrous operation with ties to his past.
