    movie sounds bad ass, looks bad ass, Rotten Tomatoes reviews so far are saying it's badass.....can it possibly live up to this?

    7.8/10 on imdb.

    I like the cast because there doesn't seem to be anyone to sack ride :o people that have been in movies but not the "omg it's {fill in the blank} greatest movie ever"

    :werd: it was definitely suspenseful and hella entertaining while i was watching it, but looking back on it I really dont think it deserves a 97% on RT.

    I don't give a shit what RT says for any movie... but I really enjoyed The Hurt Locker. Not the best war movie, but probably the best Iraq war movie.

    It was really great, one of the better movies this year. It was tight, suspenseful and really engaging. Deserves that 97% which is rare on RT.

    I finally got around to watching it. It's been called a character study alot and I really think that accurately describes it. The movie is a lot about how the job affects the people that do it and how they handle it.

    The first half of the movie is completely intense, then end sort of wags a little but it's still a good movie. I'm not a big war movie guy but this was enjoyable and left me thinking.

    kinda sucked that they showed that shit (and most of the other good shit) in the trailer. And that was the trailer on tv, I didn't seek out others.

    ya it was real good man. im surprised that it got 97 on RT though, usually theres enough people to have something bad to say about almost every movie so that almost nothing gets that high. this movie was no exception, it was definitely good, but i didnt come out of it thinking it was infallible to criticism. strange rating.

    It's a movie that sort of gets in your head. I still think about parts of it randomly. It wasn't perfect but it was good, a character study or whatever I guess. I really liked that it wasn't political.

    It's funny how different two people's taste can be. I think this movie is nearly perfect. I loved it.

    I really enjoyed it. Very intense. While watching, I had to keep reminding myself to breathe.

    Aside from a few good scenes that have already been mentioned in this thread, I thought this movie was pretty boring :dunno: Unrealistic depiction of some kind of "badass" soldier who does shit his own way... yeah I'm sure that shit happens. :mamoru:

    I watched it last night as well. Not much of a story line - it just links action scenes. But they pull it off really well. A few of the scenes reminded me of COD MW2. Will definitely watch it again!

    thought it was kinda boring with random action thrown in. it also felt very unrealistic. wouldn't these motherfuckers need to call in for backup at some point?!

    My thoughts exactly. It was a good movie compared to most of the other crap that usually comes out. But i dont get all the talk of forgetting to breathe because its so suspenseful and shit. Just a movie about an unrealistic cowboy bomb tech and his team, which included the token by the book hardass and mentally unstable sad guy.

    Still a good movie, i just dont get all the applauding.
