Roger Ebert Bigelow and Boal know what they’re doing. This movie embeds itself in a man’s mind.
Jason Anderson In 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.
Peter Travers Bigelow builds a combustible drama that shakes you in ways you don't see coming.
C. Fuchs The Hurt Locker might not be perfect, but it's pretty darn good and clearly quite engaging.
Tomatometer Consensus: 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.
