The Hurt Locker

I am planning to see The Hurt Locker, which proves that the US military has been essential in preventing bombings in Iraq at great risk to themselves.

'The Iraq war has been dramatized on film many times, and those films have been ignored just as many times by theatre audiences. But Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker” is the most skillful and emotionally involving picture yet made about the conflict. The film, from a script by Mark Boal, has a new subject: the heroism of the men who defuse improvised explosive devices, sloppily made but lethal bombs planted under a bag or a pile of garbage or just beneath the dirt of a Baghdad street.'

PS: It kinda sucks (for me) that the movie was made in Jordan rather than Iraq. More irony & hypocrisy for ya.
