I doubted this film would live up to it's oscar-success like Slumdog Millionaire last year, which I was thoroughly disappointed with. However, the Hurt Locker, is absolutely fantastic. From start to finish, it is tense, enthralling, and is such a different style of war film. I expected to see anti-war propaganda but the story is much more deeper and you see it is an exploration of feelings rather than the War itself. The action is exhilarating, it isn't too long like most war films, and a special appearance of Ralph Fiennes also makes it worthy of a watch. For this price, you've got to experience the Hurt Locker!
