Overview

Biopic of Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper), the most-celebrated sniper in American military history. In the aftermath of 9/11, Kyle decides to serve his country by becoming a Navy SEAL. But with each tour of duty, he grows more detached from his wife and children. As the story opens, we meet carefree brothers Chris and Jeff (Keir O'Donnell) as they work the Texas rodeo circuit. They're cowboys through and through, and despite being notably older than the usual enlistee, Chris pays a visit to his local recruitment office and decides to become a Navy SEAL. Later, at the firing range, he draws on his hunting lessons with his stern father to become an expert marksman. A booze-fueled barroom chat with pretty brunette Taya (Sienna Miller) soon leads to wedding bells, and following the terrorist attacks of 9/11, Kyle is deployed to Iraq for his first tour of duty. There, his reputation as a sniper who never misses makes him a legend among his fellow troops, and earns him the moniker "The Devil of Ramadi" from his enemies. With a substantial bounty on his head, Kyle makes it his personal mission to take out a sadistic Iraqi soldier known as "The Butcher," as well as an elusive enemy marksman with a skill to rival his own. The closer he gets to achieving his goals during repeat tours of duty, however, the more fellow soldiers he sees die, and the further he drifts from Taya and their two children back home. It all leads up to a tense rooftop gunfight in a raging sandstorm -- one that convinces the sniper once and for all to make his family his top priority. Unfortunately, all is not well as Kyle struggles to make the transition back to civilian life, but he discovers that helping his fellow veterans is an effective way to do good and make peace with his wartime experiences.

I think this movie and how well it did at the box office speaks for itself. I know some that have seen this movie several times. It's a movie you will never forget. Obviously those other "reviewers" just don't like American men that do what they do for our country.

I can't believe that this has only 3 stars....I thought it was exceptional. Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood, what a team!!

American Sniper is one of the most inspirational war movies ever made as it humanizes the lives, deaths and challenges of being a solider in a foreign land. Yes, this is a patriotic driven movie, but why is that a bad thing? This movie blew my mind and is definitely worth the watch.

A disturbing look into the brutalization of war and the psychic trauma it inflicts not only on soldiers but also their families. This should give the civilian a better understanding of PTSD and how it effectively re-wires the mind and exacts a heavy cost on the individual...not casual entertainment. Eastwood could have given Chris Kyle's tragic death better treatment and incorporated it into a better telling of the irony that is often a part of war's consequences. The movie's updated themes of mental stress are not too far removed from those of the early 20th century novel, "All Quiet On The Western Front." Sadly, the movie abruptly ends here and there is no further exploration of these ideas. Good, but not one of Eastwood's best.

Terrible movie.  I understand that Hollywood has to compress movies to a certain length but if you've seen the previews for this movie you've seen the movie.  Client Eastwood has let me down on this one.  If I didn't know Chris Kyle's story I would be left wondering, "so what's the big deal?"   I will have to say, Bradley Cooper delivers consistently.
