Critics slammed the movie as a pro-war propaganda film. Many in Hollywood are divided on the war story.

Funnyman Seth Rogen actually compared the flick to Nazi propaganda, on Twitter, saying, “American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that’s showing in the third act of Inglourious Basterds,” which referred to false Nazi footage in the Quentin Tarantino film.

Just after the movie’s destroyed all the competition, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore took to Twitter to rage against the movie’s portrayal of military snipers as heroes.

Moore Tweeted: “My uncle was killed in World War II, and “We were taught snipers were cowards that will shoot u in the back.”

“Michael Moore should spend a few weeks with ISIS and Boko Haram. Then he might appreciate @AmericanSniper. I am proud of our defenders,” the Republican tweeted.
