Amer­i­can Sniper

Balonne Beacon - - LIFE -

Tuesday, go!, 9pm, MA15+ (2014)

This pow­er­ful war flick, based on the true story of Chris Kyle, is di­rected by Clint East­wood’s sure hand and has a grip­ping per­for­mance from Bradley Cooper (pic­tured with Si­enna Miller) as the most lethal sniper in US mil­i­tary his­tory. It’s se­ri­ous and in­tense as it ex­plores the story of the Navy SEAL, whose 160 con­firmed kills over four tours in Iraq earns him the nick­name “Le­gend” on the bat­tle­field. But his skill comes at a high cost. Im­pec­ca­bly crafted and stun­ningly re­al­is­tic ac­tion se­quences make this a highly rec­om­mended watch.
