When the bombs go off and the bullets start flying, Metz and his cameraman provide a real-life vision of what a hurt locker is really all about.

Armadillo is a harsh, honest document about men at war - any war.

...a mostly new twist to consider the Allies who support the U.S. effort - if it is heartbreaking for American families to send their youth to war in Iraq and Afghanistan, imagine how it must feel for the Danes.

You may be sick of war films about Afghanistan by now, but Armadillo's boldly objective take on the situation shouldn't be missed.

The film doesn't sit in judgment, but it does broaden our understanding of what's happening behind enemy lines - and behind the headlines.

Armadillo alternates between scenes of tedium on base and wildly dangerous raids, with the inadvertent effect that viewers get hungry for a little combat to alleviate the monotony.

The movie's strength and audacity comes from the Danish soldiers, who confront civilians with wariness or bluntness, exalt in their victories and hesitantly exhibit fear in each others' company.

You emerge shaken and bothered, which may sound like a reason not to see the movie. It is actually the opposite.
