Sniper: Reloaded is a 2011 direct-to-video action film, directed by Claudio Fäh and the fourth installment in the Sniper film series. This film is the first in the Sniper series that does not feature the character of Thomas Beckett (portrayed by Tom Berenger). Instead, it introduces his son Brandon (portrayed by Chad Michael Collins). Also, Billy Zane reprises his role as Richard Miller from the first film.
Marine Sgt. Brandon Beckett (Collins), the son of the previous Sniper film's protagonist Thomas Beckett (Tom Berenger), takes up the mantle set by his father and goes on a mission of his own. While working with the UN Forces in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Brandon Beckett receives orders to rescue a European farmer, Jean van Brunt (Rob Fruithoff), in the middle of hostile rebel territory. When he and his men arrive at the farm, a mysterious sniper ambushes them, wounding Beckett and killing everyone else. With the help of his father's former protégé, sniper instructor Richard Miller (Billy Zane), and UN Lieutenant Ellen Ambarowitz (Annabel Wright) Beckett sets out on a personal mission to avenge the deaths of his team members. In the resulting climax of the film, Beckett learns the identity of the sniper, ex-Marine Vincent "The Italian" Masiello (Justin Strydom) a former student of Miller's who was acting under the orders of UN colonel Ralf Jäger (Richard Sammel) to cover up an arms-dealing conspiracy supplying weapons to both sides of an ongoing civil war. The mysterious sniper is finally killed by Brandon. Shortly after apprehending Jäger, Beckett is offered a job by Miller for Special Operations.
