The Hurt Locker (sniper dual)
In the Hollywood of blockbuster, generic action films, this one's an exception. It's been a while since I'd seem a good movie, but this one was pretty good. It's a film about a bomb squad in Iraq, and the missions that the team goes on, and the bond they form throughout the trials they face. Even though it's a movie about defusing IED's, there's an intense sniper dual that's pretty cool.
This scene picks up right after the English squad leader is taken out by the terrorist sniper. The allied forces (US and Brits) use what seems to be a Barrett .50 cal. The Muslim terrorists are using either a Dragunov or an Al Kadesiah (Iraqi SVD clone). Enjoy!
