In the film American Sniper we see the story of Chris Kyle's service life based on his book. Kyle was a Navy Seal and specifically an accomplished sniper. The shooters who protect ground forces. The film delves into his enlistment, deployments and the effect they had on his personal life and psyche. The war scenes are intense. The ending was a bit of a shock, as I did not know anything about the man. The emotional level of this movie is high. The credits are silent and the theater emptied in silence as well. Dramatic story well told.
