Broadsheet Trailer Park: American Sniper

at

sniper

What you may need to know:

1. Clint Eastwood directs Bradley Cooper in the biopic of US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.

2. Now that’s how you do a trailer.

3. With 160 confirmed kills and four tours of duty in Iraq, Kyle was the deadliest sniper in US military history.

4. Obviously, killing 160 people isn’t the sort of thing that you just leave at work. Kyle had a hard time adjusting to civilian life, and his knack for finding trouble included a punch-up with former WWF wrestler and governor of Minnesota Jesse Ventura.

5. Sienna Miller is unrecognisable. I mean in general.

6. It looks like Clint’s back on form after the fluffy musical Jersey Boys (2014) and underwhelming Trouble with the Curve (2012).

7. Broadsheet Prognosis: Bullseye.

Release Date: January 16, 2015 (UK).

      That case is under appeal. Witnesses say ventura did bad mouth the war and us service people. This apparently played out while ventura had a few drinks across from a dead seals wake that Kyle was attending. So rather than say something didn’t happen that neither of us were at and lets just say both parties in the case dispute the events of the night.

    wonder if you would be so gushing on a biopic of an IDF sniper? Perhaps not. Suck it up for all those google and apple jobs bitches.

    Pffff… 160 kills, that’s nothing. With 705 kills, 505 of them with his rifle and all in 100 days, this guy is the with baddest ass mofo in the history of the world. The Russians got so afraid of him they shelled the shizzle out of the forest he was hiding in for days. Convinced they’d got him they went back in and BANG!… chalk it up.

      505 confirmed kills on that link. Where did you get 705 kills from? Unlike most questions on the internet this is a genuine request for further information and not having a go.

        505 is the number of sniper rifle kills he got. He’s also credited on some sources with 200 machine gun kills

      To be fair he was shooting against a white background where his targets would have stood out. That and their breath would have helped him zero in. What’s the most impressive thing about this badass is he didn’t use a Telescopic lens but an iron sight. Try zero that in on a 1000 yard target……good luck.

    I like Clint – as long as it doesn’t ome over all “Gawd Bless America” I’ll be happy, I think Clint likes it a bit grittier than that though

    Clint Eastwood didn’t direct ‘Trouble with the Curve’, just starred in it for his mate Robert Lorenz
