I was given this movie to review in exchange for an honest blog review.
[easyazon_link identifier=”B00RGZ94SG” locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]American Sniper[/easyazon_link] is a movie about a the affects of serving time in the tours of duty can have on a person who has served. “Chris Kyle’s (Bradley Cooper) job was to protect his brothers in arms while being a prime target of insurgents.” Chris took this job very seriously. He was well known for his marksmanship. He hardly ever missed a shot. He had to shoot women and children during the act of duty.
This movie is very graphic about the realities of what war life is like when you’re in the midst of it all. I have never been a fan of war movies like this one. It was filled with loads of shooting and killing. There was some cussing. Chris did make some poor choices too upon his return home.
In the end though, Chris did find his way. However, this [easyazon_link identifier=”B00RGZ94SG” locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]American Sniper[/easyazon_link] is really about his journey to getting there. It wasn’t what I was expecting to see. I expected it to be more about his journey AND his redemption the impact it made on his life and that of his family.
This is NOT a movie to watch with your kids. There is just far to much that they really shouldn’t see. I don’t know of many women who would appreciate this movie either. However, this is a movie that many men can appreciate. I know a veteran can relate to this story-line completely. For that reason, I feel this movie would be a good Father’s Day gift for many men this year.
