The controversy over this movie continues. I finally got around to seeing it a few days ago. It’s on track to become the highest-grossing war movie in history. It’s already outpaced Pearl Harbor and will likely outpace Saving Private Ryan, even if adjusted for inflation. Wow! However, the more popular it gets, the more people bash it. Let’s break down both the movie and the controversy.
Left-wingers are saying this movie is full of lies, propaganda, and jingoism. Right-wingers are saying that Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in American military history, was a hero and he, nor the American military, should not be denigrated.
