Sandpoint Idaho Monday Movie Review - 'American Sniper'

American Sniper - Photo courtesy Warner Brother Pictures"American Sniper" surprised me. A Warner Brothers / Malpaso endeavor I was pretty sure I was going to enjoy the movie.  I was not at all disappointed there.  What I was not expecting was learning some things I did not realize prior to this movie.  I believe, at least on my part, when we hear the word 'Sniper' we picture someone crawing thru the deep brush and jungles and alone for days on end to accomplish a mission.  This film brought to light a completely different meaning.

I was pleased as well that the movie did not glorify killing.  More the horror of it, in a very realistic way.  

American Sniper Kris Kyle had a huge # of kills to his credit.  We would also put a certain stero typing to that type of individual.  I believe this was also shown to be just the opposite.  In fact I believe his attitude and reason for what he was doing is what made him superior.  

This goes hand in hand with something I hear all the time "Change how you look at things, and the things you look at will change how they look"

This is a longer movie and at no time did it drag.  Enjoy the movie.  Do not take your youngsters, and early teens, in my opinion.  Well worth the "Big Screen"

It has to be a great movie as it still is at the top of the rankings.  Lots of people have seen it.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint ~ I loved the way Clint told the story and I thought the movie was gripping and heavy all at the same time... BTW: I was awesome speaking with you last night...

Sounds like you really enjoyed the movie, Mark!  I'm no fan of war, but would rather have a well trained sniper doing his work than simply bombing a village which can often create collateral damage!

Kathleen Daniels I would say this is one to catch on the Big Screen. And being comfortable with my masculinity I can agree that he is a good lookin man to boot.    Mark

Jon Kolsky I was impressed with Mr Eastwood knowing how large his name is and only using Malpaso Productions and I had been looking forward to the call.  Not disappointed.  Trusting today was a success! Mark

Mark- I wasn't sure that I wanted to see the movie because I know the ending.  I get very emotional in movies.  That said I thought it was worthy of any of the awards it is up for.  But the ending still haunted me because it is still fresh.  In fact, that movie was in my head all night.

Kathy Streib I did not mind going to the movie knowing the ending.  Yet while watching the movie and seeing his mindset of what he was doing and fighting back after struggling at home I did not want to actually watch the end.  Left early when I figured what was going to be the last scene.  Thank you for stopping by.  Mark

Thanks for the movie review, Mark. I will be sure to check out this movie. I did wonder about it. I didn't want to see something that gloried killing.

Hello Debbie Laity .  I think it will give great insight to what drove one man in a crazy upside down world of war and ugliness.  Killing has to be depicted as does ugliness or reality of war disappears.  I sincerely believe it worth seeing.  Thank you again for an enjoyable conversation this evening.  Mark

Good evening Praful.  Thank you for stopping by.  I will be getting the DVD when it comes out.  One of those I think I probably missed a lot the first go around. Mark

I was on the fence about this...but it seems I should go.

Jon Kolsky I've dialed Mark 4-5 times in the past week....he sounds like someone who's got so much more to say than what is readily apparent.  I just even dialed now...I never leave v/m. Funny that you got him.

Hello Claude Labbe .  lol  I actually dialed Jon.  You know your home work quirk?  lol  well my quirk is answering the phone.  If it is ringing and I do not recognize the # I do not answer.  Wait a minute or two and check messages.  If the dialer does not have time to leave a message I do not bother calling back.  Normally a promotion, survey, salesman, etc.  So I do not answer if no message.  Would enjoy talking with you so will make a point of saying hello in the near future.  Contest or no.  Mark  And yes do see the movie while on the big screen.  Mark
