Description

U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname "Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world. Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to "leave no one behind." But upon returning to his wife, Taya Renae Kyle (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.

  • Not too patriotic

    This movie had a decent balance of action and was not in your face about American patriotism
  • Underwhelming

    The book was a facinating read. However, Chris Kyle only mentioned about 100 times he NEVER took headshots, always center body mass. The book covers his longest shot being off scope... at best it was a warning shot, and he got lucky. Watch this movie, turns realism into John Wick, headshot after headshot. Why? Too bad we can't embrace a more realistic viewpoint. Honestly wish the movie covered more about the technical training/embarking on warfare/adapting/psycological outcome. Kyle should not be idolized, but instead examined as a how it is. So much prep goes into an op, or spiders nest... etc. Also the randomness of war. Kyle admits he was decent but often lucky in terms of the amount of action he saw. Instead the movie focused more on Kyle defeating his nemisis-- the enemy rag head sniper. Gotta be honest this movie just felt like propaganda. I'll give a little credit for some insight on PTSD. Bradley cooper played the role as best the script/direction gave him.

    Clint Eastwood has proven himself to be a great director. This movie touched all the hot spots for me: action, emotion, insight into the human condition. Great cast. Great script. Great everything. No slow spots. The film keeps moving and kept me engaged.

    His life is a tribute to the philosophy of Freedom in America and sacrifices that require that freedom to exist. Prayers to his family and all veterans’ families who gave the ultimate sacrifice. I salute you all.

    The only reason I love it so much is because his wife is hot as &$(; in the movie and in real life. Oh and plenty of killing and excitement.

    One of the best military movies out there, and a amazing story of an American hero. Very well directed, emotional and action scenes well combined. A definite must own.
