AMERICAN SNIPER SYNOPSIS
From director Clint Eastwood comes “American Sniper,” starring Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, whose skills as a sniper made him a hero on the battlefield.
But there was much more to him than his skill as a sharpshooter.
Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield, and as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world.
Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to “leave no one behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.

Mom Maven’s Thoughts
This movie doesn’t hold back on the realities of war. The language, the sets, the heart and the split-second decision making necessary to be a sniper are all portrayed in this film. What I liked about the film was how it also showed what the military family who is left behind struggles with as well. It was a well-rounded movie that shows us that our real heroes wear camouflage and risk their lives daily for our freedom.
After you watch the movie, watch the bonus features. They give wonderful insight into the tedious process that went into making this movie. The story changed after Chris’ murder, there was no longer a happy ending for the Kyle family. While this film is not appropriate for those under the age of 18, I do hope you will watch it and be reminded to pray for our service men and women every day.
As a part of this promotion, I received a copy of the Blu-ray combo pack to give away to a veteran. Since I know too many veterans and i can’t decide who to give it to, I am donating this copy to the local VFW post so that they can share it with their members.
