One Sentence Review: American Sniper

One Sentence Review:

The story of Chris Kyle, a U.S. Navy Seal, the most decorated sniper in militany history, who served in four tours in the Iraq War, suffered from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), conquered the disease by helping other veterans, and was eventually killed by a veteran he was trying to help.


 Good movie that’s carried by Bradly Cooper. We watched it with my wife’s friend and her boyfriend. My wife’s friend mentioned that they used a fake baby in some scenes and it’s believed this is part of the reason it did not win best picture. It was definitely distracting and kind of stole the scene. The other that was confusing to me was Kyle’s brother’s storyline. It seemed like he was a prom image character but is never seen again after a strange run on the Tarmac at the start of Chris’ second tour of duty. Other than this to issues, I really enjoyed the movie about a man who served his country and gave the ultimate sacrifice trying to help other veterans.
