Navy S.E.A.L. sniper Chris Kyle's pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and turns him into a legend. Back home to his wife and kids after four tours of duty, however, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.
Marcus Luttrell and his team set out on a mission to capture or kill notorious Taliban leader Ahmad Shah, in late June 2005. Marcus and his team are left to fight for their lives in one of the most valiant efforts of modern warfare.
A marksman living in exile is coaxed back into action after learning of a plot to kill the President. Ultimately double-crossed and framed for the attempt, he goes on the run to find the real killer and the reason he was set up.
Chris Kyle was nothing more than a Texan man who dreamed of becoming a cowboy, but in his thirties he found out that maybe his life needed something different, something where he could express his real talent, something that could help America in its fight against terrorism. So he joined the SEALs in order to become a sniper. After marrying, Kyle and the other members of the team are called for their first tour of Iraq. Kyle's struggle isn't with his missions, but about his relationship with the reality of the war and, once returned at home, how he manages to handle it with his urban life, his wife and kids.Written by
Kevin Lacz was also a U.S. Navy S.E.A.L. and served with Kyle, during which time he was given the nickname "Dauber". He was initially a consultant on the film before Bradley Cooper offered him the chance to play himself in the film, which he accepted. See more »

The opening credit also rolls in silence. There is no sound whatsoever until Chris Kyle is about to start his dialogue. See more »
Just watched this then looked at all the hate.. amazing. I watched a movie with a bit of understanding behind it. I could follow what they wanted to convey, I could feel this poor mans journey and it was sad as I'm sure it was for his enemies.
American yes... But it was a movie... Expressing a point of view. To me it did it very well and showed a stuffed up topic. I'm sure he did not want to be there just as much as the people he shot did not want him to be there, such is life.
To me as an Aussie I got something from this...
This was a MOVIE...Score it as a MOVIE.
