Loosely based on the accounts of Mark Boal, a freelance journalist, The Hurt Locker is a war drama-thriller film that won a total of 6 Oscars for its brilliance. Director by Kathryn Bigelow, the first female filmmaker to win an Academy Award for Best Director which she won for her contributions to this movie, The Hurt Locker stars 2-time Academy Award-nominee Jeremy Renner of The Avengers fame, Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty and Christian Camargo. Set during the Iraq War, this compelling film follows a three-man Explosive Ordnance Disposal team, otherwise known as a bomb squad, who scour the expanse of Iraq, which is plagued by bombers and terroristic sharpshooters, so as to perform their menacing duty of dismantling IEDs (improvised explosive devices). The operatives of the squad must maintain their calm in the midst of overwhelming chaos. Forced to comply with the orders of a new team leader who has an unconventional and reckless way of doing things, will the team be able to make it out of the extended ordeal alive?
