Clint Eastwood directs the big screen biopic of Navy Seal sniper Chris Kyle, with many praising is as the best film of the year. Personally I didn’t love it but then I didn’t hate it either, I just wanted more from it. Eastwood is a director I admire greatly but this is not his best work. It is an interesting and gripping film with outstanding performances, most notably from Bradley Cooper, but it just needed a bigger kick in the right direction. It is well worth watching and certainly isn’t bad, but it unfortunately hovers rather too close to mediocrity.
