The Hurt Locker (Review)

You'll know when you're in it.

Iraq. Forced to play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse in the chaos of war, an elite Army bomb squad unit must come together in a city where everyone is a potential enemy and every object could be a deadly bomb.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The Hurt Locker brings you intense!
One of the best movie in year 2009. It's realistic, action-pact, and thrill all the way till the end.
It shows you how's a real war looks like when you are in Iraq.
The story is about Sergeant First Class William James becomes the new team leader of an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit with the U.S. Army's Bravo Company, .... joins Sergeant J.T. Sanborn and Specialist Owen Eldridge, whose jobs are to communicate with their team leader via radio inside his bombsuit, and provide him with rifle cover while he examines an improvised explosive device (IED).
It's intense when you watch it how they disarm the bombs.

Guy Pearce (Memento, L.A. Confidential), Ralph Fiennes (The Reader, The English Patient, Schindler's List) and David Morse (Disturbia, The Green Mile, The Rock) is appear in this film as well, but just a guest appearance.

Director Kathyn Bigelow, directed films such as POINT BREAK (starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze), K-19: The Widowmaker (starring Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson) which I have already watch long time ago.
And I like POINT BREAK very much!
Kathyn really can direct such action-pact movie! Bravo!

rate: 8/10
