A brutally violent, but excellent war drama.
American Sniper is a brilliant film, the roughness of war affects people emotionally, and director Clint Eastwood has already proved that with Flags Of Our Fathers. Bradley Cooper shines as Chris Kyle. But, the horrifyingly brutal violent scenes make it an adult only movie. First of all, non stop swearing, which is used in about every sentance, but soldiers will swear, and we know that. Eastwood never holds his bar for violence, kids are drilled in their heads, women are tortured and shot, blood spurts like paint everywhere and the emotional side of war strikes, one that involves , as I said children. There are some really great messages for teens or kids though, sprinkled on top of gory violence and non stop swearing sessions. American Sniper is a brilliant, but over the top brutal film, best left for adults. It is very hard and disturbing to watch at times.
