American Sniper (2014)

Released 2014 Rating 15 in UK
Director Clint Eastwood Writer/s Jason Hall
Starring Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller
Source of story A book by Chris Kyle with Scott McEwen, Jim DeFelice
Elevator Pitch Chris Kyle has shown talent as a marksman even as a child, so when he joins the Navy Seals and becomes a sniper he can make the best use of his talent, protecting boots on the ground from roof tops in Bagdhad, and then going out with the patrols to keep them safe. But back in USA his domestic life is not so well organised.
Content Much of what we have come to recognise as the tension of military operations in Iraq as the sniper has to decide who is a threat and who is not.
A View A fast moving action film, with Bradley Cooper doing a good job. Worth a watch if you like that sort of thing (I do).
