I know there's quite a few movie buffs and a number of war movie enthusiasts on the board so I'll present my very amateurish review for your pleasure. I know it's a well known story but I won't give any spoilers since it's a new release. Personally, I thought the movie was excellent, Clint Eastwood did a fantastic job with this movie! I felt no Hollywood slant or hidden agenda, just a story told plain and simple. Being a war movie I would like to point out that it's not like Fury which the entire movie takes place in theater. American Sniper is laid out more like Mel Gibson's We Were Soldiers so roughly half the movie focuses on Chris Kyle's 4 tour's in Iraq and the rest covers his personal life and his transformation after being exposed to war. The imagery can be downright brutal, not pulling any punches but not on the level of Saving Private Ryan. The gore is limited to short bursts through out the movie. The theater was packed and my friend and I were lucky to get two seats together that weren't in the first three rows. The people who came out to see the movie were anywhere from late 30's to late 60's and there were many couples past the age of 55. This is the first time I recall seeing a show that the audience applauded when the lights came up and the credits rolled. All in all I think it's a very good picture and well worth the price of admission if you like going to the movies.
