The Hurt Locker March 16, 2010

Posted by Sean Welsh in reviews.

This was a very fine picture. Compelling tension from the start, sustained all the way through the film. Very graphic and very realistic it was a worthy winner of Best Picture and Best Director. I am amazed the film was directed by a female as it was such an utterly male picture. Barely a hint of romance in the film. Instead it focuses on the addiction of war. Nice detail with the bomb disposal tech. The opening credits say ‘war is a drug’. I can see why. It’s kind of like politics only more dangerous.

Highly recommended.
