Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
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
Bradley Cooper claimed that the Iraq scenes were shot in Morocco over a period of two six-day weeks. Director Clint Eastwood wanted to finish filming in that region quickly before the weather became too hot. See more »
During the funeral service, one of the Navy personnel in the funeral detail is wearing an Expert Shooting Ribbon on his right side. This is incorrect as he should be wearing the Expert Shooting Medal on his left side and awards that do not have an associated medal are worn on the right side in the form of a ribbon. See more »
It's a fuckin' hot-box.
The fuckin' dirt here tastes like dog shit.
Ah, well you'd know, wouldn't you?

The opening credit also rolls in silence. There is no sound whatsoever until Chris Kyle is about to start his dialogue. See more »
it was extremely 'even'. nothing seemed overplayed. well balanced storytelling. as someone else wrote, best war movie i've seen in years...and while we're at it, best clint movie in a few outings, as well... i agree that the ending is a bit sudden. but there was no reason to drag it out, either... i don't feel it lingered on any one dynamic of what would be expected from a film like this...not TOO much violence or proselytizing/flag waving or lingering on casualty horrors... it doesn't, on the other hand, turn away from any of the ugliness, either... i thought bradley cooper did a great job in the role. the changes he gradually instilled into the character were subtle but present. it's as well done a war movie as i'll ever need.
