The Hurt Locker

(DVD - 2010 )
Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
The Hurt Locker


Item Details

US Army Staff Sergeant Will James, Sergeant J.T. Sanborn and Specialist Owen Eldridge comprise the Bravo Company's bomb disposal unit stationed in Baghdad. James is the tech team leader. When he arrives on the scene, Bravo Company has thirty-nine days left on its current deployment, and it will be a long thirty-nine days for Sanborn and Eldridge whose styles do not mesh with their new leader. James' thrill of the dismantlement seems to be the ultimate goal regardless of the safety of his fellow team members, others on the scene or himself. On the other hand, Sanborn is by the books: he knows his place and duty and trusts others in the army to carry out theirs as well as he. Eldridge is an insecure soldier who is constantly worried that an error or misjudgment on his part will lead to the death of an innocent civilian or a military colleague. While the three members face their own internal issues, they have to be aware of any person at the bomb sites, some of who may be bombers themselves.

This film should be required viewing for all Americans who forget that there's still a war going on. Kathryn Bigelow takes an impossible situation, men who are saddled with the task of disposing of bombs and is able to make a piece of art. She shows you post traumatic stress disorder in the making and it's aftermath. A well deserved Academy Award for Picture and Director. Especially since the movie is so not commercial, bravo!

An engaging effort with a good performance from Jeremy Renner but this is not as interesting as Zero Dark Thirty.

Awsome movie. Really gives you a great idea of what our troops go through with a little bit of humor to lighten the mood. Wonderful acting on Renner's part

Although powerfully realistic, action-packed, unrelenting and intense, the film lacks what the director really watns to tell you. She has just painted the screen with the war scenes, but she seems to have forgotten to paint it with soul and heart.
