2.5/4 

Generic right wing modern military movie in the vein of Blackhawk Down. Nothing original at all here. It was based on a true story, in which the actual Sniper was murdered, so it gained extra attention. A lot of the attention also seems to stem from the fact that it is unapologetically patriotic, pro-war and anti-Islam, which are seen as huge positives by the Fox News crowd. It wasn't a bad movie, it just wasn't that good either.

"American Sniper" by Yojimbo

Based upon the best selling autobiography by Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, American sniper is an account of his tours of duty in Iraq and struggles with adjusting to life outside of the military.
It comes as no surprise that this film is based on Kyle's own account of his life as the story it tells seems very one-sided. Having read of the accusations that Kyle's body count was so high because he systematically failed to make the distinction between combatants and civilians and that he was a borderline sociopath, this film seems beyond rose-tinted. It makes no attempt whatsoever to address these claims and we learn absolutely nothing about his killer or why he did what he did beyond a couple of lines of text saying that Kyle was killed by a "veteran he was trying to help". Which happens...

American Sniper - The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

I was surprised by how much controversy has arisen because of this film and its related content. So the main character is a sniper that's killed 160 people? Big deal, he's a soldier it's a part of their job to kill people in the end! So it's set during the Iraq War? Big deal, the American intervention in the Middle East is our generation's war and war films are always being made about the concurring conflict of the era.
By the way, neither plays a large role in the story as it is. It's Chris Kyle's story not that of the Iraq War or the army in general. It's not that big in scope and yet by focusing on this one exceptional individual it helps to make this intensely controversial and complicated operation abit more relatable, especially in regards to American veterans.
So is the movie a...

American Sniper

After reading and hearing examples of the controversy surrounding this film, and now having seen the film, I am left with more questions than answers. Not about the film. The film is one of the best movies set in wartime that I have seen. It is Eastwood's best directorial work since The Unforgiven, and Cooper's best role to date. No, the questions come for me from the controversy itself. I've heard that the movie is "too patriotic". At what point is that the case? The movie revolves around Kyle's tours in Iraq, and most particularly his role as a sniper. What is it that people want shown? Non-combatant Iraqis, who simply do not factor into the episodes of Kyle's life which are explored? An "alternate point of view", as opposed to the one shown, the one the bo...

American Sniper review

"Do you ever think that... you might have seen things or... done some things over there that you wish you hadn't?" The sotyr revolves around the life of Chris Kyle. It was very detailed so the character development was exceptional. Camera direction was superb as always coming from Eastwood even with once shot as if the camera was shot as well with bullets going thru for that added realism. The supporting cast was great and it all boils down to the acting of Bradley Cooper. Screenplay was outstanding with lines such as "If you think that this war isn't changing you you're wrong. You can only circle the flames so long" "eed you... to be human again." and "There are three types of people in this world: sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs." This was ver...
