American Sniper (2014)

Who would've thought that the one who made it through the war, wouldn't make it through it all!

It's a war movie. Professional. Personal. Directed by Clint Eastwood. About a sniper. Four tours. 160 kills. A legend. A man who wanted only to save as many people as he could. With a family. With a life. With trials and troubles just like anyone else, but with a story and a will to rival.

The action looks authentic, military, a violence in order. Flashbacks of family and tours of war blend in a haze of gun smoke and desert storms. One moment he's in the verdant green fields of America hunting deer with his dad, the next behind a scope on a dusty sunfazed rooftop in Iraq. He moves back and forth between the war and his home, but in the end the war never really leaves him.

It's not really about choosing a side, or giving the fight a meaning, or making a message... is it? It's more about this one man and his journey, and when he's gone you can wonder about what morals his stories hold. A glimpse into the mind of a stranger, a soldier, an admirable being who might not have always done what was best, but usually did the best he could. Good watch.
