‘American Sniper’ – ‘Three Kinds of People’

AMERICAN SNIPER

AMERICAN SNIPER

American Sniper, Clint Eastwood’s film about legendary Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, is coming to Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD this week from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Today, we’ve got the last of three promotional videos that intercut scenes from the film to highlight the story’s themes. In this clip, Chris Kyle’s father explains to his sons the three kinds of people he sees in the world.

A few notes on the Blu-ray:

Warner Bros. will donate $1 from each physical and digital purchase of American Sniper (up to $1 million total) to the Wounded Warrior Project. If you buy in Alabama, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, Mississippi or South Carolina, you might want to make a direct donation because those states prohibit this kind of promotion.

The Blu-ray includes two 30-minute special feature documentaries: “One Solider’s Story: The Journey of American Sniper” and “Making of American Sniper.” There’s a lot of repetition between the two films, with the principal interviewees (Bradley Cooper, Clint Eastwood, Taya Kyle and screenwriter Jason Hall) making most of the same points in each documentary. “Making of” relies heavily on a group Q&A conducted by CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

This is definitely a movie that would benefit from a commentary track from Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper, Jason Hall, Taya Kyle or some combination of all of them. Former Navy SEAL Kevin Lacz served with Chris Kyle, worked as a technical advisor on the movie and plays himself in the film; a featurette that explored his participation in the movie would also be fascinating.  Let’s hope Clint’s willing to dig a little deeper if there’s a new special edition package in a couple of years.

    I would have hoped that there would of been lots of extra goodies and commentaries with the BluRay/DVD release of “American Sniper”.

    Ah the leather strap, I remember it well. Wielded by a drunk construction foreman, dear old Dad. By accident I grew into a Sheepdog incensed by this injustice.

    From all that I have read about the Wounded Warrior Project, the WWP does not do all they can for our warriors. For every dollar collected by them, less than fifty cents for every dollar actually goes to help our warriors.

      Who peed in your Post Toasties this morning? They still provide services that no other charity does.

      You are wrong lots of money goes to give soldiers a back pack with shaving gear and the executives make great 6 figure salaries..

      • What do you think the exec’s of WW ought to be paid ? If you were running a multi-million dollar organization would you do it for $25,000 a year?

        Correcto Mundo…if the Admin people really cared about the WWP they would “Volunteer” their Services!?! Making $$ off these “Heros” is totally pathetic!!

  • TeXan1111

    The sniper could shoot men women and children at ranges so far they did not even know they were being watched thank you to modern optics.

    I like the American Sniper, I think there is no shortages or any requirements needed to be made in that movie, it is a perfect movie with a great story of an American hero. I love that movie and have watched it 5 times so far… thanks a lot Interpreter AEB from AFG

    I have read that Wounded Warrier Project is using more money suing other charities because of similar names than they ever spend on veterans….. Seems it’s more important for them to have exclusive rights to the term wounded Warrier than actually helping them. I’m hoping military authorities will sue them for stealing that term.
