The most lethal sniper in U.S. history.
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.

The story of the deadliest American sniper during the Iraki War. The movie very patriotically shows the American sniper defending his fellow soldiers, while the Iraki are shown as brutal butchers. Surely there is place for Iraki patriotism as well? Surely some iraki soldiers were motivated by the same honorable patriotism that motivated the Americans? Alas, the Iraki's are merely one-dimensional, while the American is the hero.

But the service in the army came at a price. The movie very realistically shows the American sniper having trouble readjusting to life back home. And there are very subtle hints that the same was happening to the antagonist Iraki sniper. The life of a soldier is certainly brutal. No mentally adjusted person can kill other people (even in war) and not damage their soul.

Just drivel, I don't think there's a single redeeming quality to this film.

Just an horrible movie. I read the book, everything has been messed up. As usual Eastwood does want only one thing: making people cry.
