    American Sniper [2014]

    Technically this is a decent film, the acting, production design, audio and casting are all good.

    Bear in mind this is not a political point im making its merely my interpretation of this film as an Englishman, potentially Americans will see this film differently from me.

    David Lynch directed the 1984 attempt and personally I think he did a good job! I'm in the process of reading the books and found the film thoroughly enjoyable even…

    I'm not gonna beat around the bush here.

    This is one of the worst films I have ever seen.
    The plot feels like it is ripped directly from Resevoir dogs with a few tweaks to make it seem "original"

    There are two characters in this who were decent and that was the American gun dealer and the South African gunman but the rest of the cast were weak and felt like they didnt want to be there.

    But the main…
