Navy S.E.A.L. sniper Chris Kyle's pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and turns him into a legend. Back home to his wife and kids after four tours of duty, however, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.
Marcus Luttrell and his team set out on a mission to capture or kill notorious Taliban leader Ahmad Shah, in late June 2005. Marcus and his team are left to fight for their lives in one of the most valiant efforts of modern warfare.
A marksman living in exile is coaxed back into action after learning of a plot to kill the President. Ultimately double-crossed and framed for the attempt, he goes on the run to find the real killer and the reason he was set up.
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.Written by
A trained military man would never point a weapon at another person, whether the weapon is "presumed unloaded" or not, unless he intended to use it. This rule is more fundamental than the rule about never leaving your weapon on the ground. See more »
It's a fuckin' hot-box.
The fuckin' dirt here tastes like dog shit.
Ah, well you'd know, wouldn't you?

The opening credit also rolls in silence. There is no sound whatsoever until Chris Kyle is about to start his dialogue. See more »
This film was a bit different than I expected. Originally I thought it was going to be about all the action during wartime but I was surprised that it was just as much about the family at home. I liked how they tried to show the struggle Kyle had with shooting insurgents and his home life.
The action in this film was top-notch and realistic which I really love. I prefer these kinds of movies to the explosion and bullet packed movies that Hollywood normally produces.
Bradley Cooper did an amazing job portraying Kyle and was very believable.
