American sniper is a drama film directed by Clint Eastwood. The film focuses on Chris
Kyle who works out ways to become the deadliest sniper in American history. His tactics help

coordinate the military duty with the responsibility of being a parent. His childhood ambition is
to become a cowboy, but this changed when he realized he could work better in the military. He
has a passion for what he does, and this is what makes him the best sniper. He is a good leader
who leads everyone to the war, and they win many such wars. However, the film ends in a sad
mood when Kyle is killed by a veteran he was trying to help when they were attacked.
Other characters in the film include Marcus Luttrell, Taya Kyle who is Kyle's wife, Ryan
Job who also serves along Kyle, and Osama Bin Laden who is the leader of the terrorist group

to stop. The relevant issues in this movie are war and chaos, and it contains various themes
