Films featuring Sniper rifles, with pictures and information on which sniper rifles were used.

Not all of these movies are based around sniper rifles. I just add films with at least one sniper scene.

All gun information should be credited to http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Main_Page

Props to them!

Listed in order of Best overall Listal rating, to worst.

Bourne Identity and Bourne Supremacy both had awesome sniper moments.

How about Wanted for some fantasy sniper moments, bending multi-mile trajectories.
Posted: 6 years, 1 month ago at Feb 20 23:57
Thanks guys, I will add them.
Posted: 5 years, 4 months ago at Dec 1 2:20
IMDd has now categorized Sniper 2 as a Direct to Video movie and not a TV movie as they previously did, so you can now add Sniper 2 to the list.
Posted: 5 years, 4 months ago at Dec 1 4:14
Thanks Gauntlet, I will add it.

I also found this one from 1952:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0045161/

What about Matador with Pierce Brosnan?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yld9sqRLCRs
Posted: 5 years, 4 months ago at Dec 1 5:56
The 1952 movie I already had. As for "The Matador", it has been added. Thanks for the ideas.
Posted: 5 years, 4 months ago at Dec 1 5:59

Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Jun 10 21:58
Nice list, MovieMan! Glad to see Enemy at the Gates on here.

btw, do animated films count? One of my personal favorites from back in the day is Golgo 13.

An iconic manga character with -beyond- uncanny sniping skills...

Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Jun 11 1:02
Thank you. I don't think I'm going to include animated films, no.
Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Jun 11 3:36
Was just doing a list on this one! There goes that one down the tubes. This one is so much better.
Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Jun 12 1:44
How about Targets (1968) by Peter Bogdanovich?
Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Jun 12 15:45
Shooter and Bourne series are two perfect cinemas!!!

What was that big gun the Jesse Ventura used in Predator?

Posted: 2 years, 7 months ago at Aug 30 3:39
@blankend: Not a sniper rifle. He used a minigun.
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Oct 27 15:42
The Day of the Jackal is another movie to add
