AMERICAN SNIPER is an action biography of US Navy S.E.A.L. Chris Kyle, who was a war hero and believed to be the deadliest sniper in military history.

Language

There is frequent strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'), as well as use of milder terms, such as 'prick', 'bitch' and 'shit'.

Violence

People are shot in war zones, with sight of blood spurts and injuries. A young boy is killed when a man takes a drill to his leg and head. There is also sight of a dead man who is suspended from a ceiling by chains; there are severed heads in the same room.

Threat

There is sustained threat to characters in war zone situations.

There are some sex references, for example to 'getting laid'. A husband tells his wife to "drop your drawers".
