Review of American Sniper:
I am a conservative patriotic American, but I have described the movie American Sniper in one word: TRASH. The subject matter is superb and the story is about a true hero! However, the movie repulsed me within thirty seconds, and that was it for the movie.
I heard more curse words in two hours than I ever heard in real life in thirty years combined! What's more the writers seem to have a limited repertoire of curse words, using three throughout the movie over and over again: Of course the "f" word, the "s: word and the gd word. The "F' word was the filler between the rounds of ammunition fired and coming just as fast! The entire plot was lost in a deluge of filth, not only with soldiers, but with wives, children and girl friends.
While this movie explored heroes on the battlefield, it portrayed Americans as vulgar and crass. No wonder the Muslims consider us devils! With the movie's emphasis on gutter talk and sexual innuendo, what else could they think?
I soon closed my eyes while it was on, thought about this movie and was ashamed! Ashamed that I was there. Ashamed that Christians were laughing at filth, and ashamed that America's morals have deteriorated so! We are no longer a nation of God it seems.
George Washington posted this order against profanity:
"The General is sorry to be informed that the foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing, a vice hitherto little known in our American Army is growing into fashion. He hopes that the officers will, by example as well as influence, endeavor to check it and that both they and the men will reflect that we can little hope of the blessing of Heaven on our army if we insult it by our impiety and folly. Added to this it is a vice so mean and low without any temptation that every man of sense and character detests and despises it."Can you imagine Sgt. Alvin York using the "f" word, let alone the gd one? Righteous people win wars with God's aid because they're righteous! Why do Americans expect victory when we fail to behave for the One who prospers us?
This movie, albeit patriotic in nature, is no more than another Hollywood trash movie written to their own lack of morality standards! Christians should look elsewhere for entertainment because we should not pleasure in evil. I fail to believe that our American boys serving so close to death curse that frequently with such a lack of intelligent speech! I can't believe this movie accurately represents those who fight for their country. If it does, then we're in trouble and George Washing ton saw it coming.
