Based on the true story of Chris Kyle, one of the most acclaimed american snipers for his technic and the number of deaths collect in the four tours in the american army. Called the Legend by his fellow companions, the movie based on the biography written by Chris himself is brought to the big screen by Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper.
Even though presents the defining moments in his life that made him join the navy Seals, the army’s elite, the main focus of this motion picture is the tours, inhospitable, violent places where death peaks at every corner.
In war movies it’s easy to get lost at the body count but in here every death has it’s weight, every kill matters and that is no easy task to accomplish. More than glorifying the legend, it tries to show the harsh reality of those who fight for their country and the consequences of their choices. Chris is affected by PTSD and that has an impact in very aspect of his life, taking his ability to enjoy the present because even though he returned home his mind is still on the battlefield and he simply can’t disconnect.
A pertinent look on fighters and what war does to a man.
May The Almighty GIP be with you,
