From U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s position atop decrepit buildings in Iraq, his hidden presence seemed like anything but unknown to those in his close proximity. U.S. ground troops, going door-to-door searching for insurgents, gained confidence knowing that America’s best-ever sniper was providing them over-watch protection from high above. Enemy forces also grew to know of Kyle’s legendary marksmanship skills and close whereabouts, witnessing their al-Qaeda in Iraq members dropping dead after each single shot from Chris’ rifle. No one, however, was more aware of Chris Kyle’s presence and four tours of duty in Iraq than his wife, Taya Kyle, left behind in San Diego. It’s that marriage and relationship between Chris and Taya Kyle that “American Sniper” steadies upon, takes aim at, and, ultimately scores a direct hit for viewers. Between sighting in terrorist targets and actually pulling the trigger as Kyle, Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper must control his breathing—the same task moviegoers must master in this heart-pounding, emotional true story.
