Review For The Hurt LockerBigelow's film combines an expert management of tension with a sensitive and journalistic attention to detail: she has one eye on the truth and the other on the multiplex.
Dave Calhoun-Time Out
One of the best movies of the year, with a star-making performance from Jeremy Renner.
Richard Roeper-Richard Roeper.com
Like every war before it, the U.S. invasion of Iraq has generated its share of movies. But The Hurt Locker is the first of them that can properly be called a masterpiece.
Rene Rodriguez-Miami Herald
The question isn't how do you live with the buzz of looming death; it's how do you live without it? No answers are offered, or even suggested.
Tom Long-Detroit News
Like her protagonist, Bigelow is both a meticulous technician and a ballsy showoff. And, like him, she has ice water in her veins.
Christopher Orr-The New Republic
The Hurt Locker is at once an unforgettable war film and a brilliant character study.
Calvin Wilson-St. Louis Post-Dispatch
When the picture isn't ramping up your heart rate, it switches gears and becomes an intimate character study in what war does to humankind.
Jeremy Wheeler-TV Guide's Movie Guide
Though the slow-building occasionally drags, for the most part The Hurt Locker is a masterclass in how to build tension.
Stephen Carty-Flix Capacitor
It's in refusing to plant a flag on one side or the other over the Iraq war debacle that Bigelow may just have made the conflict's defining film: words are cheap, but it's action that matters.
I wasn't exactly blown away by it (no pun intended here at all), but it remains an engaging film. There's certainly a great story to be told in here somewhere, it's just not the great film I've been hearing about.
It's not delicate by any means, and it gives an intense look into the lives of the American soldiers in Iraq.
Kevin Carr-7M Pictures
The suspense may just kill you.
Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker is one of the most thrilling action films I've seen in the past few years. It features set piece after pulse-quickening set piece.
The decade's best fictional film about its real war, it's a unique perspective on the workplace high of delivering containment from chaos. Some people kick PowerPoint's ass. Sgt. 1st Class William James saves his by defusing bombs.
Jeremy Renner as the unhinged James is a revelation.
There is something original and distinctive about the film's willingness to admit that for some men (and many moviegoers) war carries an intrinsic dramatic charge.
Guy Westwell-Sight and Sound
Equal parts bravado-fueled action and pointed political statement. The best film yet made about the Iraq War, and the best American film about war since Platoon.
One of the few must watches of the year so far, and certainly one of the most intelligent offerings, The Hurt Locker would likely already be boasting a masterpiece label had it been from a high profile director or studio.
Sam Bathe-Fan The Fire
The opening scene alone may well be the most insanely gripping and amazingly constructed cinematic moment you'll see all year.
Alice Tynan-The Vine
Combines white- knuckle tension, sizzling dialogue and poignant insight into the lives of the bravest guys in Baghdad.
A tense, occasionally meandering story about bomb defusers in Iraq.
Wesley Lovell-Cinema Sight
May be to the War on Terror what Apocalypse Now is to Vietnam, and it's almost as hallucinatory a vision.
Rob Humanick-Projection Booth
While Kathryn Bigelow's taut direction is Academy Award-worthy, Mark Boal's script doesn't get far enough beneath the characters' skin.
Fr. Chris Carpenter-Movie Dearest
Succeeds where so many others have failed, by crafting a compelling Iraq war film.
A must-see film with gripping performances and vivid evocation of urban warfare in Iraq.
Mark Demetrius-FILMINK (Australia)
With politics and philosophy largely absent from James's tour of extreme duty, it settles into a somewhat comforting pattern of danger and mild relief, which can diffuse the knots in your stomach.
Ben McEachen-Sunday Mail (Australia)
