Chris Kyle might have been just one of the millions of veterans who have served were it not for a statistic. He emerged from the war in Iraq as the most lethal sniper in the history of the U.S. military, but the filmmakers behind American Sniper knew it was equally, if not more important, to explore the man behind the numbers.

Jersey Boys was supposed to be directed by Iron Man’s Jon Favreau who no doubt would have made the Broadway adaptation much more entertaining than this generic rags-to-riches tale of a 1950s pop group which struggled with fame and fortune and the pitfalls that came along with it. Yawn. Clint Eastwood’s greatest liability in this project is the clichéd backdrop of the story, a hurdle which he could have overcome with his years of experience behind the camera, but unfortunately, his straight-forward style of storytelling was not a good match for the material.
