This Author, a Vietnam Era Veteran was invited to the Screening of American Sniper at the Landmark Theatre in Los Angeles/Century City. And in this Author’s opinion, American Sniper, a true story, was so compelling and so powerful and the special effects so surreal, that it is not only the Best War Movie ever made, it is the best Movie ever made, and it should be awarded the Oscar for Best Picture of the Year, and Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood should be awarded the Oscar for Best Actor and Best Director, respectively.

Many Veterans and their Family Members and Widowed Spouses stood on line for this invitation only screening of American Sniper.

American Sniper is an “R” rated Movie that not only every U.S. Veteran should see, but every American Family and their Children who are of age and not “Restricted” should see together or separately so that they will understand “The Price of Freedom and also what many of Our new War Veterans known as the Post 911 War Veterans have had to endure.

MORE ABOUT THE MOVIE “AMERICAN SNIPER”
From director Clint Eastwood comes “American Sniper,” starring Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history.  But there was much more to him than his skill as a sharpshooter.  U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms.  His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.”  However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents.  He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world.  Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the SEAL creed to “leave no man behind.”  But upon returning to his wife, Taya Renae Kyle (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.
