She did that after reading a couple of reviews for "300" which I had been campaigning to see. My oldest daughter was even willing to go to see "300," but my wife suggested we go see "Shooter" instead.
Now I cannot help you out as to which reviews you should have your wife read, but I can suggest that you send her to the Rotten Tomatoes.com site for "300."
Have her watch three or four of the clips that they have, and she will be buying the tickets to "The Shooter" for you.
The "Shooter" is just an action classic that moves very well. Fortunately you do not have time to ask yourself a lot of questions about the movie. Still it is one of those movies where you can lose yourself in a bunch of action which has very little relation to reality unless you are shacked up in tiny cabin in Montana and writing manifestos. My wife even enjoyed it, but wanted to know why no money was ever used in the movie.
I found it nice to go see a movie where the good guys win and the bad guys get nailed. It took my mind off of doing my taxes which I finished up a couple of days later.
It has my recommendation, and I will likely buy it when it is available on DVD and put it on the shelf next to "The Rock."
