However, it is my opinion that he is a villain. I believe this because he could be an extremely violent leader and because he never fully reigned over one of the places he conquered/ruled. He is a villain because he murdered thousands of people and soldiers from different nations. Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them.

Moss did not return the case directly to Chigurh and for that he payed with his wife’s life.

There are two basic ideas that can be taken from any war. War is expensive and war is hell. The second of these ideas is the premise of countless media adaptations; the violence of war has been captured, reenacted, and even created on film for viewers all over the world to enjoy.

The American public’s fascination with war dates back to the Civil War; at the battle of Bull Run, northern citizens watched the battle while picnicking on the sidelines.

Conversely, in times of peace he demonstrated his compassion through accomplishing for the poor, the selfish, and the unjust exactly what he would do for himself. Krieger spared no expense for his citizens and strangers alike, guiding them through drought, starvation, and combat. As a result, he earned not only their devotion, but the trust of the world as well. Society recalled him as courageous and wise, as he discerned when to lay his life in battle and when to lay down his talons instead. Krieger, through all of his accolades, remained no vainer than the next.
Throughout the film the Turkish are seen as evil maniac figures that want to take over and kill all of their men. This was seen through newspaper and the public media in notion to persuade men to join. In result of this the men beginning to think killing the Turkish was the best option to save their country, and most of the men thought of dying in battle with the enemy was just as good.

Chris Kyle, “The American Sniper,” was a United States Navy SEAL and, to date, the most deadly sniper in U.S. history. Chris Kyle served four tours in the Iraq War, expending 160 kills, which were confirmed by the Department of Defense. The life of Chris Kyle was portrayed in the 2014 film, American Sniper, as well as the 2012 book, American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History, written by Kyle himself. Kyle’s 160 kills surely came at a certain cost; each kill brought him more and more distress, which would eventually lead to his difficulty re-acclimating back to civilian life.
