    In American Sniper and The Sniper, Chris Kyle and O'Connell, they have priorities which are protecting theirs and American lives and also, they have to kill their enemies. It's important to be aware of your surroundings because there is danger everywhere. Sometimes people think that just because you are in the military and that you deal with a lot of violence you're the strongest person ever but not necessarily. Chris Kyle is an American legend that is looked up to as a strong fearless role model yet he has feared many things while at war; for example, " My brother had joined the Marines...I hadn’t heard from him...with each man we pulled out of that grave...I was more and more convinced I was going to see my brother. My stomach tightened...I felt a moment of relief…(American Sniper pg.100).” Chris Kyle states his priorities would be “...God, Country, Family…”(Page 8), although god and his country are before family he still cared about his family (brother) and felt fear to find him dead.…

    In American Sniper, Chris Kyle was angry and wanted to serve his country as a result of the 9/11 attack. He joined the marines and became a sniper, one of the most well known ones in United States History. In 12 Strong, a special force team of 12 men were deployed to Afghanistan to be the first ones to respond to their 9/11 attack on the Twin Towers. Critic James Berardinelli stated, “Although the characters are all types, the performances are strong enough that we identify with them despite their lack of depth.” Meaning, that he thinks 12 Strong lacks in its ability to draw a connection with the audience. While both movies had similar plots, the movie American Sniper presented a more emotional and relatable storyline.…

    Pathos In American Sniper

    I believe that Clint Eastwood set out to create a movie that shows what actually happened in Iraq and the difficulties the soldiers face when they were over there. Throughout the film, you see things that you could never imagine seeing such as the boy getting drilled in the side of his head. Soldiers are like brothers to each other and in this film it shows the hardships that they face when they see one of their fellow comrades get injured or die in front of them. A strong use of pathos is used in this film as Kyle is talking to his friend about him proposing when he gets back from deployment and then moments later get shot in the ear getting severely injured leaving the audience wondering if he’ll survive or not. This film proved to be very accurate in terms of how the Iraq War was.…
