Making a killing at the box office

American Sniper is getting lots of love from audiences across the country.
Hollywood, not so much.
We've had Iraq movies about how bad the United States was.
Never did we have complaints those movies were unbalanced in presentation.
Just this one.
Complaints that Kyle may have lied about his activities, and that he was too enthusiastic a killer, have been around since the publication of the book. But the success of the film both with Academy voters and now with the public has ramped up the criticism, even as it has brought out staunch supporters of Kyle’s.
And there are plenty of supporters.
