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
“During the Civil war was the first time they used snipers.” The author Liam O’ Flaherty wrote a story called “ The Sniper” in Civil war. Killing doesn’t matter until it’s your own is illustrated throughout the story as the author’s theme. The author uses descriptive language and simile throughout the story. Killing doesn’t matter until it’s your own is the primary theme in “ The Sniper.” This is convincing because, for example a “ Machine gunner’s head was hanging life less over the turret.” This is how the author uses descriptive language. The sniper killed the other snipers and celebrates.
Moral degradation is a necessary evil in order to survive through war; therefore, construction of a new morality is inescapable. Within the stories in The Things They Carried, soldiers are required to do so during and after the Vietnam War. War breeds monstrosities and wanton cruelty. When faced with two evils, picking the lesser immoral option is not necessarily something to be frowned upon. This is what separates a soldier’s morality and a civilian’s morality.
The government, military officials and military supporters were the champions encouraging and supporting Kyle’s behavior. Whereas anti-war organizations and the media were the detractors for this deviance while expressing their opinions against military presence and the killing of innocent civilians in Iraq. Nonetheless, Kyle remains seen as a hero. For example, Kyle was the subject of the best-selling autobiography and the movie “American Sniper” created after his death received the highest popularity and public acceptance. Further, I analyze Kyle’s deviance using the Differential Association and Labeling theories and discuss his transition through the seven stages of deviant identity formation.
In this essay on the story, “The Most Dangerous Game” written by Richard Connell, the audience will read about the story of how Sanger Rainsford survived three very suspenseful days. They will also meet the very skillful and vicious hunter General Zaroff. They will also read about Sanger Rainsford’s very dangerous traps that he set up in those three days.Sanger Rainsford is a very cultured hunter as the audience will see because none of the traps that he built are American. An average human being would have most likely built some sort of trap that was mainly based from something that was invented in the U.S. Sanger Rainsford has been very worthy to surviving against the very skilled General Zaroff. Sanger Rainsford tried to kill General Zaroff three in this story but my favorite trial was Sanger Rainsford’s Malay mancatcher.
When going to war it is in everyone’s mind to get scared. It doesn’t matter, either men or women, everyone has a right to get scared whenever they hear that they are going to war. However, General Patton gave his soldiers confidence by giving a speech in front of all the soldiers about what will happen at war. Hope to go forward and reach personal conquests exists in every man, and this often navigates the hero into a state of tragedy involving suffering. World war two was the most vicious war in history.
A rifle man takes a lot of dedication to become. The reason I want to be a rifle man is because they are one of the best infantry groups in the United States military. Everyone I have ever told about me wanting to be a marine they all tell me I cannot do it, so that is another reason I want to go so bad. I want to prove everyone that has ever told me “I cannot do it” wrong. I want to make sure I get to come back and look them in the eyes and say “I told you I would come back a marine.” They are going to be
In To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, there are many examples of the themes of individuality and belonging. Atticus Finch is definitely a perfect model of personal integrity and individuality, as he fights for the innocence of Tom Robinson, falsely accused of rape, as well as his own beliefs. A good example of this would be when Jem makes the observation of his father, Atticus, as he realizes, "It was times like these when I thought my father, who hated guns and had never been to any wars, was the bravest man who ever lived," (Chapter 11). Jem believes his dad is a hero in his own right because of his moral commitment to the law and to justice. Atticus goes against the grain of the majority that would rather see Tom proven guilty for a crime he did not even commit.
They both share the traits of bravery and the traits of being a great warrior. They both are both boundless warriors because Achilles was deemed almost impossible to kill and he was known to kill any foe that dared to face him, Beowulf defeated the beast Grendel and that shows his ability to be a prosperous warrior because no one thought it was possible to bring Grendel down. Achilles is brave because he goes out and kills the Kings Son Hector, and that is very brave because obviously if you kill a king's son, there will be consequences. Beowulf is very courageous because of the fact that he went out and he faced Grendel the most dreaded monsters known to his

Fighting a war is difficult, especially when one leaves a wife and two small children behind to fight for their freedom. Chris Kyle, a husband, and father of two is deployed to Iraq as a SEAL sniper. There he earns the omnipotent name “The Legend” for the most confirmed kills in the history of the SEALS. Chris risks his life to save the lives of others. Connecting with Chris since he hunts animals and shoots guns, evaluating the death of fellow SEAL Marc Lee, and visualizing the city of Ramadi is simple since the author used great detail in the book American Sniper.
This is exactly what the sniper is going through over the course of the narrative. If you know that you will feel like that every day, and still go through with your mission. You are either the very brave or a complete idiot. To be a sniper you must have immeasurable bravery, and overcome your fear. This was very well depicted on paragraph 17 “the cloud of fear scattered from his mind and he laughed.’’ Many do not think of snipers as brave because they “shoot their opponent when their back is turned.” But, if you are able to go through the previous experiences without going completely crazy, you are considered very brave to me.
