My review – when I saw American Sniper I was amazed on what a job Bradley Cooper did as portraying this man. When I heard that he was going to be playing a deadeye sharpshooter I couldn’t come to my self and say it was going to be good. Bradley Cooper just doesn’t seem like the guy to lay this role. But holy shit he proved me wrong. He had to pack on at least 40 pounds of muscle for this movie. Because if you see him in the hangover movies he’s a twig, but this movie he’s fucking huge. But for the movie, I really enjoyed this movie, I enjoyed how they portrayed the war, the hidden messages about the war, and the life of the soldiers when they come home to their family. The movie did a great job of not just focusing on the war aspect of it but also the hardships of PTSD of the soldiers when they get home. There was one scene in this movie that really got my saying, “wow these guys are truly amazing.” And for a movie to do that is seems really hard but not for this movie. When they showed that he died at the end everyone was in shock, and I was surprised because I thought everyone knew that he died. Fun fact, the father of Chris in real life, told Clint Eastwood that if he portrayed his son in a bad way that he would kill him. That so much pressure for this movie, one mistake you have that whole family down your throat. Overall this movie moves you, makes you want to become a Navy SEAL and entertains you from start to finish, I would say SEE IT 5/5

    war movies without fail have the same ending. People going insane because innocent people are killing innocent people for a Commy power to have their ways over masses of people instead of enforcing constitutional rights what the military swore to serve to begin with.

    As someone in the military this movie definitely touched me. However yes I do agree that this movie needed to be VERY accurate. This movie does touch base on what does happen overseas. Does anyone want to kill somebody no but once you are in that mindset, you can enjoy it to an extent. Its how you cope with doing something you would never do. I did also like this movie also because it was released right before the trial had started and I was curious to see the reactions from everyone and the judicial system since the movie had already named that the veteran was guilty.
