The Shooter (original title), later released as Hidden Assassin,[1] is a 1995 American action drama directed by Ted Kotcheff and starring Dolph Lundgren as a United States Marshall who gets caught up in politics when he is hired to solve the assassination of a Cuban ambassador.

There are two versions released for this film: the international cut running 104 minutes, and the shorter cut running 89 minutes, released in the U.S. and France, that is believed to have been shortened by Miramax when they acquired the rights (the company has been known for re-cutting some films they distribute).

The movie was filmed mainly in the Czech Republic, in Prague.
