We all know “World War 2”. It’s like… the only interesting war ever. So many video games and movies made off it. It’s good to see a breath of fresh air every now and then. This time, it’s brought to you by Kathryn Bigelow‘s “The Hurt Locker”.
In Iraq, a U.S. Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit is forced to play a dangerous game of cat and mouse in the chaos of war in a city where everyone is a potential enemy and every object could be a deadly bomb. Jeremy Renner plays the leader of the EOD team, as he contends with not only defusing bombs in the backdrop of a war, but also the psychological and emotional strain that it inflicts.
