American Sniper: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Clint Eastwood once again creates another masterpiece in American Sniper. A film that features the life of Chris Kyle - the most lethal sniper in U.S. history. He had 160 confirmed kills across his name and a lot more undocumented kills that made him as one of the most dangerous enemies of the Iraqis where they put a six-figure bounty on his head. 

Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) is a Texas rodeo cowboy. He finally saw his purpose when he joined the U.S. Navy and trained to be a marksman to protect his fellow comrades at war. He is willing to take difficult decisions in order to save the lives of other people. With his duty calling and his family aching for his presence at home. Chris must need to stay focus and careful at all means at the battlefield. 

What makes this film so interesting is the fact that Clint Eastwood gives us a fast-paced story and a great view about the life of Chris Kyle. He is also not afraid to show the evils of war where we got some ruthless scenes handled very well. The film gives the audience an intense atmosphere where you'll feel the thrill and excitement, especially when they are inside the war zone.

Bradley Cooper handles the role well. We see him as a bulk bearded soldier who is willing to risk is life in order to save others, but you'll see deep in his eyes that he is struggling with his psychological trauma caused by the war. We are not surprised to see him nominated again for Oscars this year as he excels in every role given to him. 

Overall, American Sniper is a great way to pay tribute to the most lethal sniper in U.S. history. Clint Eastwood hits the target and utilized his subject well. It is a truly riveting film that manages Bradley Cooper to shine.
