Movie Reviews – The Hurt Locker

Video Reviews this week appears at the Oscar-winning, hard-hitting Iraq war drama The Hurt Locker. It issues Jeremy Renner (28 several weeks later) as Sergeant Initial Class William James, an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) bomb disposal expert, who has been sent into Bravo Company, at Camp Victory. We join film production company as Personnel Sergeant Matt Thompson played out by Guy Pearce (Memento) along with Sergeant JT Sanborn played by Anthony Mackie (Half Nelson), and Specialist Owen Eldrigde enjoyed by Brian Geraghty (Bobby), are attempting to deactivate an IED, that has been put there to kill and maim as many civilian and armed service personnel as possible, Thompson is the bomb expert while the other two soldiers are to watch for any problems, i. e. anyone interfering and keep the people relatively safe. putlocker

Unfortunately things do not go as prepared, and James soon ties Bravo Company. However his ground breaking or carefree (as his fellow soldiers respect it) methods at explosive device disarming don’t go too well with Sanborn and Elridge, there is a memorable scene where Elridge tells one of his commanding officers, after this individual asks how he is doing, he says that his team leader is inspired, and mentions sarcastically that his team head is going to get him killed, the strong officer, mentions that this individual shouldn’t be having these varieties of thoughts, that war is an one in a lifetime opportunity, as Elridge looks distantly, the group cannot help wondering at the roundabout sarcasm for the reason that statement, as Elridge tells asks him if he knows what it is he and the other men do every day, his telling officer states that this individual has had his time on the field, to which Elridge sarcastically requests “Where is that… Yale”? 

Matters come to a heated exchange when Adam attempting to disarm a bomb, that is extremely complicated, removes his blast suit, to be able to get comfortable, when he puts it “If I am heading to die today I actually might as well expire comfy”, even going as far as to put away his radio as Sanborn constantly tells him that there are “too many eyes” watching them and they have to move. We have a little glimpse at the difficult problems facing the military in Iraq, seeking to liaison with the local population (there is a charming boy who offers DVDs that has made friends with some of the soldiers; nicknamed Beers; who James gets friendly with over a game of soccer, and the ice is broken over his namesake, Beckham, but the boy states this individual is much better than Beckham), often meeting terminology barriers, as well as not trying to seem to be dictatorial, but requiring them to keep at a safe distance while they try and do their job.

The acting in the Hurt Locker is top-notch right, and the movie is shot almost documentary style, with close-ups of the soldiers and the mass of thoughts they go through during many tense moments. You will see why this is the first movie to have a woman, Kathryn Bigelow winning the Best Overseer Oscar. Movie Reviews is constantly updated with good reviews of big films that are a necessity see.
