The Hurt Locker Movie Review by Movie Addict (2/24/2010)

Already 67 wins out of 111 nominations. Nine Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. This is the definitive film about action in Iraq.

It's not a war picture, it's a soldiers who happen to be at war picture. It focuses on the men who are there doing a dirty job.

It was bad enough watching the EOD specialist, SSgt...

It is dark, tense, ugly, graphic and violent, as the old saying goes war is hell and this movie shows the dark side of hell. The acting is superb, I guess they needed some A1 stars so they enlisted the aid of David Morse, Ralph Fiennes and Guy...

The Hurt Locker Movie Review by Ben (7/5/2009)

Kathryn Bigelow's "The Hurt Locker" is one of the most intense and suspenseful war movies that I have ever seen. No war movie has been this exciting since "Black Hawk Down." It follows an elite Army EOD bomb squad in Iraq who are assigned with the task of disarming IED's, or explosive devices designed to create the most...
