The film about the American sniper, Chris Kyle was a huge success in 2014. We tell you what the chances are for “American Sniper 2”.
The biographical drama “American Sniper” follows the story of the most successful American sniper Chris Kyle ( Bradley Cooper, “A Star Is Born”), from his training to his first and last deployment in Iraq. A subplot of the film is everyday life in his native Texas, how he meets his wife Taya ( Sienna Miller, “21 Bridges”), gets married, and has children with her. Time and again, the traumatic events in the war zone impact his family life, which is peaceful. We’ll tell you about “American Sniper 2” here.
“American Sniper 2”: The Storyline Is Complete
Even if director Clint Eastwood (“Million Dollar Baby,” “Gran Torino”) has a penchant for emotional storytelling, there were natural limits with this film because it is based on a true story. After his wife’s repeated requests and killing the best Iraqi sniper, Chris returns to his homeland. It is difficult for him to lead a normal life there, so he begins to listen to the stories of the others at veterans’ meetings and spends a lot of time with the former soldiers. When he takes a young marine to a firing range, Chris is shot by him. The last few sequences show excerpts from the procession convoy and its memorial service in Arlington, Texas. “American Sniper 2” is therefore not to be expected because the heroic story of Chris Kyle is over.
