Maybe a fair summary?

American Sniper and the political battle over Chris Kyle.

Dana Stevens writes what sounds like a pretty balanced take on the movie and the surrounding controversy.  She liked it, but not without qualification.

This single line seems important:
It’s an existential critique of violent machismo that doubles as a celebration of violence.
 I do usually have a serious problem with that sort of contradictory effect in a movie...
