THURS­DAY AMER­I­CAN SNIPER

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.30PM, FOXTEL PRE­MIERE ★★★

This is the true story of Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper), the Navy SEAL who is ranked as the most ef­fec­tive wartime sniper in US mil­i­tary his­tory. Dur­ing four tours in Iraq, Kyle sent about 160 en­emy mili­ti­a­men to their deaths. While the movie is no way a wan­ton cel­e­bra­tion of killing in the line of duty, there is a proudly pa­tri­otic streak to di­rec­tor Clint East­wood’s ap­proach that some view­ers may find wor­ry­ingly sim­plis­tic. Nev­er­the­less, pow­er­ful stuff.
