Mini Review - American Sniper

American Sniper (out Jan 22) is about Chris Kyle – a Navy SEAL who was credited with more than 160 enemy kills during the recent Iraq War. It’s a film that doesn’t really know what it wants to be. Is it a patriotic tribute to an American hero? Is it an unrealistic action-thriller? Or is it a relationship drama about a troubled couple? Don’t get me started on the ending. Grade: C+.
