I enjoyed it well enough and it had me interested and at the edge of my seat from the start...

American Sniper is a flawed yet fantastic film.

The greatest victims of any war are children and the director captures it with one of the most brutal sequences ever seen on a screen, in which a drill leaves an indelible memory. [Full Review in Spanish]
