Snipers have to play a very skilled game of cat and mouse. And are sometimes these lonely soldiers that have literally been the ones to win wars. Russian snipers saved Russia from German rule in the battle of Stalingrad.
American sniper is a good guy who was meant to be the best there was. I always support America in any conflict. Iraq's best sniper once won an olympic gold for shooting and was like a stealthy' swift' shadowy ghost. Alone and equipped with only his rifle he caused more problems for the yanks then every iraqi fighter trying to defend Fallujah at that time. American sniper has every bit of hi tec kit there is. Not to mention the back up of hundreds of marines and sattelittes constantly scanning for the iraqi sniper location.
The Iraqi has a rifle and proves to Americas best sniper that he is on another level and a far more superior sniper. I started to like the huge underdog Iraqi but was glad when the the yank finally located and killed him.The only reason the American beat him was because a sattelite was eventually able to give the yank his location.
With sattelle support Americas best would have lost and he knew it.
I loved this movie and was glad the yank won. Without letting politics or religion come into it, part of me was sympathec to the iraqi for losing to a sattelite and not the skills of the American sniper alone, who was a master in his field but now knew he was far from the best. What ever the outcome between thes 2 snipers was. They both had one thing in common. They were both heroes.
This movie left me with one thought.
Never understmate the underdog
