Default American Sniper

this is an excellent film and a piece of our history. clint eastwood directed so you know that part is going to be done very well....bradley cooper must have really had to bulk up to play Chris Kyle, a legendary navy seal sniper who saved many lives during four tours in iraq...his acting was superb as well as that of sienna miller who played his wife...i have seen his real life wife on tv saying that the film is very accurate in portraying their lives and what a soldier goes through. the lines were practically out the door at LSL and i think this one will be a best seller for weeks to come.

This film is worth the price. This is the best film I have seen in years. My advice, go see it.

Great picture. First movie I have gone to that there was dead silence at the end. Respect to all our veterans and active military who serve our country.

the audience applauded at the showing i attended! i suggest also it is worth the price to see it on the big screen and with other people...you can feel the connection between us all as americans. and you can't get that from comcast.

I was ready for a big letdown. Seems everything is usually overrated. Turned out to be great, gave it a 10!

It is at two theaters in the Villages-- Barnstorm and Old Mill Playhouse. So there seems to be a lot of opportunities to see it.

Just got home from seeing it at Brownwood and the line to go in was out the door. They are saying probably the picture of the year. I read the book and the movie condenses it quite a bit of course, but is an excellent movie. I highly recommend it and gives you an appreciation for those doing combat.
