The Hurt Locker

The Hurt Locker A tight war drama set in Iraq....The Film Starts with a quote by Chris Hedges "The rush of battle is a potent And often lethal addiction, for war is a drug."Director Kathryn Bigelow tells the story of An explosive ordinance disposal(e.o.d.) unit. Jeremy Renner who I use to see here on the south side when he was starring in the failed N.B.C drama The Unusual...Stars as Sergeant 1st class William James a reckless adrenaline junkie....Anthony Makie is great as the responsible Sergeant Sanborn... All he wants is to get home and hopefully spawn a son...Brain Geraghty is the 3rd member of the unit Specialist Owen Elderidge.He's young scared and green ...Cameos by Ralph Fiennes,Guy Pearce,and David Morse,...The Hurt locker is nominated for 3 golden globes...Best drama,Best director, and best screenplay...War is always filled with fear and extreme tensions...this film is intense....What real life e.o.d units go through...I can't imagine...This was only a movie...
