American Sniper (15) is showing at the Connaught Cinema and Studio, Worthing from Thursday February 12th to Monday February 23rd.
Based on the hit memoir by real-life Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, American Sniper marks director Clint Eastwood’s return to violence, and especially the gun-related violence that’s hallmarked his greatest films.
Bradley Cooper plays the unerringly accurate rifleman charged with taking down dangerous targets in Iraq. His prowess unmatched, Chris becomes a military icon and an essential asset, protecting both troops and civilians from harm in a vicious, unpredictable conflict.
He saves countless lives and earns a formidable reputation, making him a legend among his colleagues, but also a prime target for insurgents. But Chris has another life back in Texas with Taya (Miller), the new wife he met just before a tour of duty. The brutalisation of war puts a strain on this relationship, which Eastwood and scriptwriter Jason Hall weave into a powerful subplot that rivals the battleground scenes in intensity.
