Navy S.E.A.L. sniper Chris Kyle's pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and turns him into a legend. Back home to his wife and kids after four tours of duty, however, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.
The blank ammunition fired on-set was very loud, and the cast members were fitted with hearing protection concealed out of the shot whenever possible.
It's a fuckin' hot-box.
soldier: The fuckin' dirt here tastes like dog shit.
Chris Kyle: Ah, well you'd know, wouldn't you?
After the soldier takes a ricochet round to the face and the team heads out again, the gunners shield has a Punisher style logo sprayed on. In one shot it is black logo on sand coloured background, and in others it's sand coloured logo on black background.
The opening credit also rolls in silence. There is no sound whatsoever until Chris Kyle is about to start his dialogue.
