American Sniper

American Sniper
Chris Kyle wants nothing more than to be a cowboy, but when he becomes a Navy Seal sniper, he soon reaches legendary status within in the Armed Forces. After four tours of duty in Iraq, he learns that it’s hard to leave the war on terror behind even when he’s home with his wife, Taya, and their two young children. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “American Sniper”.

∙ When Chris finds the cache of weapons hidden in the floor, he grabs the man and pushes him against the wall. In the left side view of Chris and the man, Chris’ right hand is against the man’s head with his thumb and index finger touching the man’s shirt collar. His right hand changes position against the man’s head throughout the rest of the scene as it switches between right and left side views.

∙ Mads is talking to Chris and Colton while they’re at the auto shop. When Chris’ hands are on Colton’s shoulders, Chris’ watch is covered by his shirt sleeve. It’s then uncovered where the watch is visible and then it’s once again covered toward the end of the scene.

∙ Taya is talking to Chris while she’s feeding their daughter. He takes the baby and Taya zips up the pink jacket she’s wearing. The scene cuts to a quick view of Chris holding the baby and then back to Taya. When she says “you’re my husband”, her jacket is unzipped again.

∙ Chris has to shoot a man carrying a grenade launcher. In the overhead view, when the boy approaches the man on the sidewalk, the man in mostly on his right side with that side of his face almost against the pavement. In the close-up, when the boy is looking around, the man is on his back, facing up with the back of his head resting against his backpack. Also during the scene, the boy picks up the grenade launcher and eventually tosses it a few feet away from the man. But in the overhead view as the boy runs away, the weapon is closer to the man (who is once again facing his right side).

“American Sniper” (2014) was directed by Clint Eastwood and stars Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Keir O’Donnell, Billy Miller, Kevin Lacz and Jake McDorman. It runs 132 minutes and is rated R for strong and disturbing war violence, and language throughout including some sexual references.
