U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle takes his sole mission—protect his comrades—to heart and becomes one of the most lethal snipers in American history. His pinpoint accuracy not only saves countless lives but also makes him a prime target of insurgents. Despite grave danger and his struggle to be a good husband and father to his family back in the States, Kyle serves four tours of duty in Iraq. However, when he finally returns home, he finds that he cannot leave the war behind.
By now, everyone has heard of Chris Kyle. "The Legend," as he was known from the soldiers he was assigned to protect is the most lethal sniper in US history with 160 kills.
A lot has been said about this film. That it's Merica' propaganda, that it has taken a lot of liberties with actual events and the like. I guess, I didn't think it was that blatant in the "RAH RAH USA, USA" department. Bradley Cooper was awesome as Chris Kyle, Eastwood's direction was solid and the war scenes were very well shot. American Sniper, to me, is worth the price of admission, and then some.
