It’s been long since Clint Eastwood has made a great film. In a career spanning more than 50 years he has given us some unforgettable films like ‘Unforgiven’, ‘Mystic Rover’ and ‘Million Dollar Baby’. But soon after ‘Letter of Iwo Jima’ — his last great film — he lost his touch and directed many duds including some high-profile films like ‘J.Edgar’ and ‘Hereafter’. With ‘American Sniper’, one does get a feeling that he might have found his lost touch again. And as you would guess from this review of ‘Zero Dark Thirty’, I am a sucker for realistically shot war-drama films. So, it goes without specifically mentioning that I am eagerly waiting for ‘American Sniper’. Not to forget the fact that it stars Bradley Cooper — who has been on fire off late with back-to-back Oscar nominations — in the lead role of Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in American military history with 160 confirmed kills out of 255 probable kills.
