This film is considered the best made film of the year by most top film critics and in bound for Academy Award fame. Three members of the Army's elite Explosive Ordnance Disposal squad battle insurgents and one another as they search for and disarm a wave of roadside bombs on the streets of Baghdad. Their mission is clear--protect and save--but it's anything but easy, as the margin of error is zero when defusing a war-zone bomb. This thrilling and heart-pounding look at the psychology of bomb technicians and the effects of risk and danger on the human psyche is a fictional tale inspired by real events.
The National Society of Film Critics has selected The Hurt Locker as the best picture of 2009 and gave it best director and best actor awards.
