The Hurt Locker (2008)

Rating: 8/10


(+) The movie is constantly thrilling, scene after scene…

(+) …But yet takes enough breaks for character development.

(+) Fantastic cinematography work with fantastic slow-motion sequences.

(+) Great acting performances (Jeremy Renner like i’ve never seem him act ever since).

(+) Great looking sets.

(+) Feels like a super realistic war movie, exploring new sectors of the war like the defusing of bombs in civil areas.

(+) Great sound design.

(+) Good soundtrack.

(-) Unrelatable underlying message that is also not too well transmitted.

(-) Seemingly building up to something with its character development and increasing tension between characters, but ending up in nothing related to that.
