Bradley Cooper adds 40 pounds of muscle and a Texas twang to remarkably transform himself into Chris Kyle, a Navy SEAL who became a legend, literally, because of his ability as a sniper. The majority of this film takes place during his enemy encounters in Iraq, all shot with controlled, precise skill by director Clint Eastwood. This alternates with his struggles to adapt to the civilian world of husband and father, presented by Eastwood with empathy but restrained emotion. Although some scenes go on too long, the film’s quiet intensity, the character’s determination and Cooper’s performance make for a compelling experience.

 

4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 / 5)
