Very similar to other films of this genre like " Black Hawk down" and " Hurt locker", this engaging film is about a marine sniper of the American army and his exploits in the Iraqi theater of war. Based on the life of Chris Kyle this film is directed by veteran Clint Eastwood.

A sniper's duty is to protect his comrades during war and while performing his duty he comes across many tension filled situations which give him nightmares  Credited with 168 kills our sniper has a family back home and the  shooting of Iraqi snipers, armed women and children in the line of his duty takes a  heavy toll on his psyche. His wife sees this conversion of a loving husband into an emotional wreck and wants him to come back from the war.

The film is sincere study of the futility of war and the huge price humans pay for this exercise.The trauma and the suffering is shown well. Director Clint Eastwood seems to have done a commendable job bringing out the pain and the anguish of the protagonist.There are some very well shot war scenes.

Bradley Cooper effectively plays this emotionally charged role of the lethal sniper with conviction ( In one well shot scene even while in combat he keeps telling his wife on telephone that he is coming back soon). An award winning role indeed.

Sienna Miller as his wife is in good support. In a touching scene at their home when she sees him disturbed with memories of war,she tells him "You are not here when you are here. I want you to be human again.I want you back" 

Tail Piece. Lovers of good cinema must have noted that among the better movies of this time, biopics have done well. Three good movies on Stephen Hawking,Chris Kyle and Alan Turing are worth seeing more than once.
