This film, which viewers should know includes frequent strong language and strong, disturbing war violence, is finely crafted. The performances are terrific. Cooper is almost uncanny in his role. Sienna Miller, as the long-suffering Taya, is simply wonderful. The supporting cast delivers at every level.Click here to read the full reviewMarch 12th, 2015 · Details
Set Chris Kyle up as a hero, not as someone who loved killing people. It seemed to portray the difficulty of his job quite accurately, especially when women or young children ended up being potential targets. Overcoming the issues so he could be a better father and husband was a great element of the story, but could have been much more powerfully displayed. There was no real transition, Chris was struggling, and then all of a sudden he was better.January 23rd, 2015 · Details
Thankfully, and with supreme power, Eastwood gives Kyle's story everything it deserves and more. Depicted with traumatic immediacy (mental even more so than physical, although plenty of both) and without stale memorialized flag-waving, we're left with not just a deep appreciation for Kyle but also a towering weight of responsibility for our veterans that can't be easily dismissed. Immersing us into the intense stakes and psychological burden of Kyle's life, Eastwood gives us a harrowing account of modern warfare, its toll on those who fight it, and on those who love them – that all ends with an absolute gut-punch.Click here to read the full review
American Sniper is about more than one man's heroism in the midst of war. It's about the high cost of that war on those involved—and it asks (demands) that we too feel and see (if not quite experience) that cost.Click here to read the full review
For those seeking an insight into an individual veteran's perspective on the Iraq War, director Clint Eastwood's sober drama "American Sniper" (Warner Bros.) -- which stars Bradley Cooper as real-life Navy SEAL Chris Kyle -- will likely hit home.Click here to read the full review
American Sniper's wartime sequences are well-paced and harrowing, reminiscent of those in 2008's The Hurt Locker. Like that film, Sniper can be interpreted fr either as a patriotic salute or as an incisive anti-war movie. In either case, it's a powerful, moving and tragic tale.Click here to read the full reviewDecember 24th, 2014 · Details
