it's rare in the Hollywood genre of war films where I am more interested in the person or main character that is being portrayed, than the action and set pieces. That's all thanks to Bradley Coppers transformation into Chris Kyle. From the accent to the ripped build, this is Coppers finest physical transformation, by far. Eastwoods direction, by balancing out the home/war scenes are seamless. Cooper and Miller have great chemistry, you really feel something, especially the scenes in which they are communicating in long distance phone calls. This film will catch some flack for 2 scenes that I found were anything I've seen in war films. It's good to see Eastwood on top of his game again, and Cooper continuing to shine.
Revenge thrillers are never any decent anymore. When one comes around like this one, you have to respect the work. Nothing is explained, plot wise for the 1st act, and the main character of Dwight goes through an amazing transformation. His arc is brilliant, I give a great shout-out to the director. I've wanted to see this film for some time, and im glad I did.
This is a film that I admired more than actually enjoyed. The sacrifices and life that Zamperini lived makes him a real american hero. Its too bad Jolie's direction didnt give the character and on-screen version any justice. The 1st half features some of the best acting, while the last act falls into a jumbled mess. If only there were more quality scenes in the final act, this would be worth rewatching.
