American Sniper honors a great hero

5 second plot: This is the true story of Chris Kyle, a Texas cowboy who decides one day to join the Navy SEALs and fight for his country. He becomes a world class sniper known as 'The Legend'. He does four tours in Irak. With all the horrible things he's seen, it's difficult for him to get back to the real world.

5 second review: You can feel there is a master filmmaker and an incredibly talented actor at work here. Clint Eastwood switches between time periods and places to keep the energy going and creates an enormous tension as we are sucked into the battlefield. This is a great movie about a great American hero.
