The Hurt Locker
The Hurt Locker is an emotional roller coaster that is well worth the ride. The film grabs the audience, shakes it by the throat, sets it down, and repeats. A masterful film style takes us inside the tasks and emotions of a special bomb unit in Iraq that meets dramatic circumstances. Dealing with their enemy, their emotions and their job makes for a thriller of a war film.

Almost saw this over the weekend . . . thanks for the review as it's supposed to be really good (intense, but good). Saw '500 Days' instead and 'Transformers' (I'm not proud, but it was on IMAX . . . ).
2D~This is a good one. Has it's flaws, but the intensity is impressive and so is the ending. I liked it.
My friend Alex said this was the most intense war film he was ever seen. I'm still split between seeing this since some of the people I know said it felt too much like propaganda.
Farzan~Yes, it's very intense, but a worthwhile film experience.
