American Sniper Movie Review

American Sniper
Director: Clint Eastwood
Screenwriter: Jason Dean Hall
Cast: Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Luke Grimes, Kyle Gallner
Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated R | 134 Minutes
Release Date: January 16, 2015

Directed by Clint Eastwood (J. Edgar, Jersey Boys), American Sniper stars Bradley Cooper as U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history with 160 confirmed kills. Written by Jason Dean Hall, the film is based upon Kyle’s bestselling 2009 autobiography of the same name.

After 9/11, Kyle is deployed to Iraq with one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His deadly accuracy saves countless American lives and – as stories of his exploits spread through the ranks – he earns the nickname, “Legend.” His reputation grows behind enemy lines, too. A bounty is put on his head, making him a prime target of insurgents.

Despite the danger, Kyle serves four tours of duty in Iraq, becoming emblematic of the SEAL creed to “leave no man behind.” Upon returning home, however, the Navy SEAL discovers that he can’t escape the war that’s still raging inside his head.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra week of geek G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra movie posterG. I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
Directed by Stephen Sommers
Starring Channing Tatum, Sienna Miller, Marlon Wayans, Dennis Quaid, Ray Park, Rachel Nichols
Rated PG-13
Release date: August 7, 2009

Like many children of the ’80s, I did watch the G.I. Joe cartoon. Don’t ask me what I remember of it though. I watched so many cartoons back then that other than the Joe’s “knowing is half the battle” segments, there is not much of it that I retained over the years. What I do know is that the cartoon was very popular way back when and it was only a matter of time before it got its big screen live-action debut. I mean, if Transformers and even Alvin and the Chipmunks can get that kind treatment, why can’t G.I. Joe?

Based on the popular toy line and cartoon, G. I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra follows soldiers Duke (Channing Tatum) and Ripcord (Marlon Wayans). On a mission to transfer a deadly technological weapon, their convoy is ambushed by a terrorist group. Their collective behind is saved by an elite military led by General Hawk (Dennis Quaid), known as G.I. JOE. In memory of their fallen comrades, Duke and Ripcord team up with the JOEs to safely transport the weapons to their destination and in the process they come across the terrorist group COBRA.
