TAKING pride in fighting for your country's honour, freedom and safety is at the heat of this latest Clint Eastwood-directed epic.
Bradley Cooper stars as Chris Kyle, a man brought up by his father to always stand up for what he believes is right.
With that message ringing in his ears, Kyle signs up for the toughest assignment anyone could imagine – representing his country with the Navy SEALs.
Kyle is sent to the Iraqi city of Fallujah as a sniper tasked with protecting his brothers-in-arms.
His brilliance earns him legendary status among his comrades, as one by one he picks off the enemy when they approach the US troops.
But that tag and honour comes at a heavy price.
Soon Kyle is the number one target of the Iraqi fighters but can he protect his own life, as well as his comrades?
This tense thriller is based on a true story and also sheds a graphic light on the seldom-seen world of fighting behind enemy lines.
Sienna Miller, Jake McDorman and Luke Grimes star alongside Cooper and the film was released nationwide on Friday.
