This film has the Oscars in its cross-hairs. Bradley Cooper plays the part of an excellent American hero, Navy S.E.A.L. Chris Kyle. This film is riddled with tense moments that will have you gripping your seat, mixed in with some touching moments and hilarious parts to give some levity (thank goodness). Sienna Miller surprised me in her role as Kyle’s wife and Clint Eastwood does it again with a very well made film. One of the sniper shots Cooper takes in the film goes into slow motion and is just perfectly timed, you just want to leap out of your seat and clap. I’ve seen a lot of movies but not since the Green Mile have I walked out of a movie theater and heard silence as the crowd walked out. The movie shook everyone up, you could hear a pin drop leaving the theater. That’s a powerful film.
