WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle (Cooper) is sent to Iraq where, with his pinpoint accuracy, he builds a reputation on both sides as one of the most lethal snipers in US military history and a prime target for insurgents with a heavy price on his head…

After a brief attempt to lighten the mood with Jersey Boys, director Clint Eastwood returns to far tenser filmmaking with this gripping portrayal of a decorated military legend (though to be fair, nothing’s more tense than getting through Jersey Boys without yawning…).
