Overall, I just think you expected this to be another action war movie. If it was all your points would be valid for me. I just don't agree in the case of a biopic.

EDIT: Your post above mine kind of proves my point. You wanted a movie that had a story which ends in some sort of action the whole story led up to. American Sniper is not that kind of movie. Before the movie he was just like any other soldier that fought in the war(s) and came home. The movie is about his life as a soldier.

It's a movie that was not entertaining, because Chris Kyle's story is not entertaining.

It's a propaganda flick.

I've been avoiding seeing this because it seems like pretty blatant "support our troops" propaganda. Not to mention the controversy surrounding the person whose life it's based on.

I'm watching it tonight though, so we'll see

Haven't watched it but it sounds like Black hawk down (which I haven't watched either)

A guy gets labeled as hero for doing something in war to help his troops but in private he is an asshole.

After what I read here I got no desire to watch this movie. If you are into Sharpshooters you should search for the book "In the eye of the Hunter" (literally translated), it's about the austrian Sharpshooter Joseph Allerberger in WWII . The book is interesting and intimitating at the same time. Very graphic display what happened at the east front, what and how he did it, also with some pictures.
He kept his mouth shut for 50 years before telling anyone what he did.
The book is more about showing the horrors of war experienced by young soldiers rather than glamourising of what he did.

Joseph or Sepp Allerberger is considered one of the best Sharpshooters of the German Wehrmacht in WWII.
