The Hurt Locker
This highly-rated war drama takes a look at a bomb disposal squad operating in Iraq. We focus on three men, in particular the new squad leader, and two of his underlings, who have only a few weeks left before returning Stateside. The new leader has a reckless streak and pushes his men into dangerous situations, which is of course at odds with his men's desire to go home alive ...

eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconIn an era when movies seem to offer less and less to paying customers, it’s no small thing to encounter a two-for-one deal like The Hurt Locker. A perceptive and provocative study of men at war (the Iraq War in particular), it’s also the summer’s most stunning and suspenseful action movie.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconBigelow builds a combustible drama that shakes you in ways you don't see coming.

C. Fuchs quote iconThe Hurt Locker might not be perfect, but it's pretty darn good and clearly quite engaging.

Tomatometer quote iconConsensus: A well-acted, intensely shot, action filled war epic, Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker is thus far the best of the recent dramatizations of the Iraq War.
