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.
The story of the first major battle of the American phase of the Vietnam War, and the soldiers on both sides that fought it, while their wives wait nervously and anxiously at home for the good news or the bad news.
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
Upon Chris Kyle's first kill, he returns to find another soldier reading a graphic novel. The graphic novel is for the character The Punisher, who wears a skull on his chest. This skull is later seen on decorating uniforms and vehicles in Kyle's team. See more »
Chris Kyle enlisted in 1999, yet on his 2nd tour in Iraq (2004) someone in the movie calls him Chief. He didn't make Chief Petty Officer until just before he left the Navy in 2009, 5 years later. See more »

Ah, well you'd know, wouldn't you?

Footage of the real Chris Kyle's memorial service is featured during the first half of the end credits, while the instrumental "The Funeral" by Ennio Morricone plays on the soundtrack. Following the music and the footage, the rest of the end credits play in complete silence. See more »
Just watched this then looked at all the hate.. amazing. I watched a movie with a bit of understanding behind it. I could follow what they wanted to convey, I could feel this poor mans journey and it was sad as I'm sure it was for his enemies.
American yes... But it was a movie... Expressing a point of view. To me it did it very well and showed a stuffed up topic. I'm sure he did not want to be there just as much as the people he shot did not want him to be there, such is life.
To me as an Aussie I got something from this...
This was a MOVIE...Score it as a MOVIE.
