america sniper - lots of mixed reviews so wasn't sure what to expect. Turned out to be a lot better than I expected and I enjoyed it. 3.5/5
I thought it was pretty good. Apparently Chris Kyle tells some good tall tales though. He claimed to have shot and killed two guys at a gas station after they tried to steal his truck. The story goes that when the cops showed up and ran his info a Department of Defense number came up and the cops were told to call. Once they did, the legal stuff mysteriously disappeared.
A reporter has proven this to be complete bullshit. Further to that, he also claimed to have punched out Jesse 'The Body' Ventura, who's also an ex-Navy SEAL, at a SEAL related gala. Ventura sued him for defamation and won - which is a rarity in defamation suits.
Needless to say, he clearly liked to tell some tall tales.
I'd five the flick 7.5/10. 'merca fuck yeah!
