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.
