The Hurt Locker

Recommended Posts

I saw this movie Ads on youtube, and it looks very promising. It is also nominated for some awards. However, it is shame that the movie is only available in limited theaters, if you are living in an area which has theater plays it, you might want to check it out.

Plot summary from IMDB:

"An intense portrayal of elite soldiers who have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: disarming bombs in the heat of combat. When a new sergeant, James, takes over a highly trained bomb disposal team amidst violent conflict, he surprises his two subordinates, Sanborn and Eldridge, by recklessly plunging them into a deadly game of urban combat. James behaves as if he's indifferent to death. As the men struggle to control their wild new leader, the city explodes into chaos, and James' true character reveals itself in a way that will change each man forever."

It's a good thriller and has some great action scenes, but don't expect anything too realistic from it.

(...) James behaves as if he's indifferent to death(...)

:glare: hmmm, looks like another hollywoodian war movie with super hero running in slomo with huge explosions behind him, then someone dies and theres a sad song, blablabla...Since I saw generation kill (for me the perfect mix between reality and drama) I know there's another way to show the war, without slomo, with music, without heroes.

IMO those kind of movies shows a lack of respect for soldiers, the best survives the rest die.

well that's just my opinion...
