American Sniper review

More a mini review...


This movie poster is perhaps the more dignified version.

This seemed overall a bit disappointing. I think I went in expecting it to be a bit like ‘Hurt Locker’ but the editing or switching between being in the Baghdad missions and back home in the US just seemed too annoying. 

Surely there is someway of transitioning such scenes better. May be this style of movie is not my personal favourite. The overall tension and drama was pretty effective in some particularly harrowing scenes. It certainly gives a good indication of the intense emotional pressures of urban warfare.
