Clint Eastwood is the director of this film with the help of Jason Hall whom wrote American Sniper. American Sniper is a high accomplishment for Clint Eastwood. One redeeming quality of this film is its cinematography or other words the art of making the motion pictures. Tom Stern was in charge of the outstand and realistic cinematography. Everything in this film is seen clearly, and the film’s cinematography has a polished look to it which makes all the events in American Sniper really stand out and visible to the audience. The cinematography also creates a washed- out green tinted look that enhances the harshness of the Middle Eastern setting, which while in war was where most of the majority of the film takes place.
How it works
Not only was the cinematography a redeeming quality but also the acting. Bradley Cooper who plays Chris Kyle makes his role as an actor very convincing. Bradley Cooper fits the role as Chris Kyle perfectly, not only because of his muscular figure that could symbolizes Chris Kyle in real life but also his personality. He portrays Chris Kyle as a hardworking Texas man who serves his country with diligence. Bradley Coopers acting is phenomenal. He shows anger, frustration, dedication and determination as he acts as Chris Kyle. He shows all emotions and makes it believable.
