Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world.
Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to “leave no one behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.
A two-time Oscar nominee for his work in “Silver Linings Playbook” and “American Hustle,” Cooper heads the cast, which also includes Sienna Miller, Luke Grimes, Jake McDorman, Cory Hardrict, Kevin Lacz, Navid Negahban and Keir O’Donnell.
Oscar-winning filmmaker Clint Eastwood (“Million Dollar Baby,” “Unforgiven”) directed “American Sniper” from a screenplay written by Jason Hall, based on the book by Chris Kyle, with Scott McEwen and Jim DeFelice.

Such movies like that need to be made. To some such heroes seem simplistic and over glamorized by the movie, but the story is none the less valid and its messages none the less valid to many Americans. I have had family die in the Marines service in both WW II and Viet Nam. I myself have never served in the military. I am retired clergy. However, my brother and my uncle gave everything up for service to this country. Maybe I have an inside track on appreciating sacrifice for this country..
The business of defending a country is always going to invite differences of opinion. For those who fully support the right to do so men such as Kyle are exactly the kind of person you want on your side. This is the story of a person who took his mission to the limits and, unfortunately, it becomes an integral part of the man to which he finds it difficult to separate from his life outside the military. No matter if it is colored it seems wholly possible as depicting a large truth in exceptional circumstances. A man who seems built for the kill, if necessary, becomes a bit of a machine to which he loses a part of himself to "the mission". Life outside the mission becomes a lot more difficult and in the transition back to a normal life some extraordinary circumstances come to pass. It's a sobering look at just a slice of the PST life of an over-achiever with a natural talent for a narrow wheelhouse of service within the military. It underscores how much being a rock-solid and totally rounded person someone thrust into this service must be. It also shows that a life such as this can't live in a bubble and, sadly, may be adversely affected by others who see him as part of their problem.
Clint Eastwood is a highly capable film director who has really made an excellent movie here. Just like the man the movie is about it will be brutally real to digest. But, it doesn't shrink into any particular corner and it stands as a piece of art that truly depicts a life caught up in the myriad circumstances war creates. I give it a high recommendation.
