The 2014 film American Sniper, directed by Clint Eastwood, is based on the story of United States Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who became one of the most prolific snipers in United States military history. Upon release, the film was described as being “less concerned with action heroism than the consequences of deadly action, how it chips away the living” (Persall). Much of the praise for the film surrounds the portrayal of the internal struggle of the main character Chris Kyle. As the film smothers the audience with nationalistic propaganda, the audience neglects to take notice of the portrayal of the Iraqi people that Chris Kyle kills on his path to becoming the “national hero” that the film portrays him to be. A closer look into the cinematography
A perfect modern hero that reflects values of society is Kyle Carpenter. Many people know Carpenter as the recipient of the Medal of Honor because of his heroic acts in Afghanistan, but no one knows what he did to earn the highest military award.

Sanger Rainsford tried to kill General Zaroff three in this story but my favorite trial was Sanger Rainsford’s Malay mancatcher. His attempt was a failure but not completely, for he injured General Zaroff’s shoulder in this attempt. A Malay mancatcher is a trap in which the victim of the trap would step on a trigger to set off the trap which would proceed to drop on the victim. Luckily for General Zaroff he has hunted in Malacca before and is very agile and quick. “Rainsford, called the general, if you are within the sound of my voice, as I suppose you are, let me congratulate you, not many men know how to build a malay mancatcher” (Connell 26).

Also, the premise of Saving Private Ryan is a group of soldiers looking for Ryan, but Fritz Niland required no search party. He originally fought through the first battle during D-day and survived only to be informed that his brother Bob Niland had been fatally shot off of a machine gun while providing cover fire for retreating soldiers. Another inaccuracy is the duration of events depicted in Saving Private Ryan. The movie painted an unfortunate fantasy of the battle lasting merely minutes, while the cold hard truth was hours upon hours of unbroken bullet spray and bloodshed. This change is necessary though because the short duration of the battle shown alone cost the filmers 12 million dollars of the 70 million dollar budget (“Saving Private Ryan- Eric and Anna - Historical Inaccuracies in Film.”).

His actions without thought end with him getting shot and him shooting and killing his brother.

They were all the enemy, they were to be destroyed, sir.” (141) However, John never intended to kill the innocent. He saw the same soldiers that he fought with for the past few months brutally massacring the villagers that were trying to flee for their lives. This was the climax of the war for John, he would forever be changed by what he saw in My Lai and would take many months in order to get over what happened.
Osewoudt wants to be a good Dutchman and wants his life to have a meaning or purpose, so he accepted the tasks. Dorbeck acts as a soldier and in doing so, he often assigns him to kill people. “He held the back of her head by the hair and broke her neck on the edge of the draining board” (149). Osewoudt seemed more of a hitman than a soldier, he generally doesn’t question Dorbeck’s motive. Osewoudt eventually was
