All I've heard is good feedback. Hell, even my wife wants to see it. Im sure Mr Cooper being in the movie has NOTHING to do with that either. LOL

I have heard it is a good movie but since I returned from Viet Nam I have not nor will I see any "war" movies.

 

That's just me.

 

Glad everyone enjoyed it.

 

And by the way, not being political, but I hate Jane Fonda.

I can't stand her myself, probably for the same reasons you don't! "Sniper" is a sad story, a patriotic story, but being ex- military.. Some of the preview scenes have hit home with me, soo I'm probably going to wait till it's on DVD ..

My son is a Senior in HS, going to college for Criminal Justice. Wants to join the Army after and be a Ranger. He eventually wants to be a sniper as well. My son did a book report on it and I read it after; can't wait to see the movie too!

polarizing topic, destined for a locked thread.... 

that said, i'm not paying $15 at the theatre to see ANY movie, period.  perhaps when it's on dvd or the internet i may watch it, but not paying an arm and a leg to watch it in a large crowd.

Not polarizing at all. My wife...well let's just say she is from Venus and I am from Mars.

She loved the movie.  Believe it or not, American Sniper is nearly a Chick Flick!  The

audience was almost exclusively couples.

I have been wanting to see this movie so bad.  I just have not had the time.  I watched an interview with Bradley Cooper and Taya.  It was amazing to learn what they went through just to film the movie.

Was a fantastic movie. Knew it would be. Chris Kyle had asked that Clint Eastwood direct it when the subject came up at the beginning.

If you haven't already, I strongly suggest you read the book. Movies are great, but the books truly go through every moment and really put you in it too. That was my experience with American Sniper, The Lone Survivor and The Ice Man.

Great movie. My best friend had the honor of meeting the hero, Chris Kyle , overseas during his three tours with the Marine Core. He couldn't say enough nice things about him. These are the real heroes, glad people are seeing the movie so they can see what these men and women sacrifice for the rest of us. Thank a vet.

That's awesome man! A lot of my buddies are in the military, a few of them never made it home alive (RIP Ricky and Travis). Movies like this give me an overwhelming feeling of love and support for our men and women who lay it all on the line.

At the same time, I am also overwhelmed with a feeling of disgust for what they have to deal with (from enemy and OUR rules (ROE specifically) while on duty.

To me if you are sent to war... It's war and you have already been engaged (otherwise why are there boots on the ground).

Just my 2 cents! God bless vets and actives!

Great movie. It also gave me overwhelming feelings and emotion of what our armed forces must go through. 

Bittersweet. Utmost respect to our men and women of the armed forces.

I guess I'll wait until I can watch it sitting at home.

 

One question though.  The movie's trailer shows him talking to his wife on the satellite phone at a time when it looks like he is fully engaged in combat.  Really?  Isn't there anything a guy can do without having the wife pester him on the phone?

She just wanted him to pick up a few things for dinner.

I urge you to get the book and read it before seeing the movie, it will make more sense.

Just finished the book. Looking forward to the movie. Every comment I've heard about the movie is extremely positive.

 

This may the the one time when you can say the movie is better than the book, which is a statement I've never made.

If the previews hit home with you you might want to skip te movie all together, I just got back from seeing it and I don't feel too hot. Good movie, pretty real though.
