The Hurt Locker was awesome. I watched it on PSS this morning.
The 2 hour movie is a suspenseful portrait of the courage under fire of the military's unrecognized heroes : the techincians of a bomb squad who volunteer to challenge the odds and save lives doing one of the world's most dangerous jobs. Three membbers of the Army's elite Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) squad battle insurgents and one another as they search for and disarm a wave of roadside bombs on the streets of Baghdad. Their mission is clear, protect and save, but it's anything but easy.
This fictional tale is inspired by real events by journalist and screenwriter Mark Boal. (adapted: Official site of The Hurt Locker http://www.thehurtlocker-movie.com/)
The ending wasn't what I thought it would be. It showed Sergeant First Class William James, played by Jeremy Renner who is very good at his job, back at his home in America. But it seems that he could not adjust to a life of family. He tells his baby boy, that life progresses the number of things we love shrinks inexorable. Maybe you think he was talking about his boy, but no, the last scene showed him getting off the helicopter for another tour in Iraq.
Watch it if you've got the time.
They were recently awarded 6 Oscar awards. (Avatar had 3 only if I'm not mistaken) =)
