Chris Kyle was nothing more than a Texan man who dreamed of becoming a cowboy, but in his thirties he found out that maybe his life needed something different, something where he could express his real talent, something that could help America in its fight against terrorism. So he joined the SEALs in order to become a sniper. After marrying, Kyle and the other members of the team are called for their first tour of Iraq. Kyle's struggle isn't with his missions, but about his relationship with the reality of the war and, once returned at home, how he manages to handle it with his urban life, his wife and kids.

Bradley Cooper really wanted to do justice to the size of Chris Kyle, because he felt he would not be accurately portraying the man if he did not look huge like him. He said that after every take, he would go and ask the crew, "Did I look big enough?" See more »
When Kyle takes out the man who falls from a roof, the bang is heard before the whine of the bullet and its hit. Since Kyle use a high-velocity rifle, the bullet travels much faster than the sound of the rifle being fired. Hence, the bullet would whine by before the bang. See more »

Bradley Cooper Gives One Of The Best Performances Of His Career.
American sniper is probably one of the best war films I've seen since Saving Private Ryan. Now I would probably won't consider this a war film because it mostly focuses on one character. One of the most recent war films that I really enjoyed last year was Lone Survivor. Now I thought that movie was really good but it was just handle very overly dramatic. I think this is probably one of the best performances Bradley Cooper has given in his career. I also think this is Clint Eastwood's best movie he has directed since Gran Torino. The action scenes were handled very well and it felt real. One problem I had with the film were the supporting characters. Now the acting for them were good but it's just you never get to know most of them their just there for the main character. The story is mostly just learning about one character. There really isn't that much to say about this film but if your a fan of war films then I would highly recommend checking this film out.
