Has anyone watched the movie "The Hurt Locker"? If so, what did you think of it? ;?

Is that the one about a Jets fan getting arrested in San Diego?

I saw the Hurt Nocker. Very sad but titillating.

But to answer your question - No here is one trailer

Anyway - it got great reviews Garett - what did you think?

Even Rottentomatoes fans love it

Guess I have to rent it if I can find it.

It was good..a bit different for a war flick.

Another movie/documentary to watch about Iraq war is Brothers at War.
A civie brother following his two brothers in Iraq to film a documentary about his family and what drives his brothers to serve.

I have a lot of respect for EOD (explosive ordanance deposal) teams as well as Combat engineers.. They saved my arse breaching the mind fields in Kuwait.. I hope I can sit through this movie.. I now find some combat movies to be disturbing ie; saving private ryan etc..

I think it's a good watch...I enjoyed it. I felt it exposed several layers of demons associated with war time quite well. The miltary can train the human body to do many things, but they still haven't figured out where the switch is to the mind.

Just pay-per-viewed it last night an thought it was different from most in an excellent way. Definately not "hollywoodized" garbage.
Acting was superb, story intense, had your adrenaline and emotions on overload the whole time.

Great movie for those that don't appreciate the effort, sacrifice, and struggle our military endure.
