At a glance, Clint Eastwood's latest film - American Sniper - seems like a solid war movie, ocassionally delving into heavy thematic material. But is this really the case?
The film seems to be splitting critics down the middle, with some praising its subtle, restrained look at a man devastated by war - while others dismiss it as a shallow, slightly troubling pro-war movie. Is any of this actually true? And, more importantly, does the brilliant trailer really reflect the movie!?
Join Matt & Jon as they discuss the American Sniper trailer. Later - after the film has been released - they return to the studio to discuss the feature itself.
