Not only the best film made so far about the war in Iraq, but also one of the best thrillers of the year.

The Hurt Locker transcends the political slop surrounding Iraq and cuts straight to the bone, letting us touch the hard, bloody reality of war without casualties of cliche or naive acts of emotional heroism.

Adam Smith
Radio Times

Bigelow, one of the very few women working in the traditionally male-dominated action and war genres, avoids both red wire/yellow wire cliché and political preaching to deliver a film that is as psychologically fascinating as it is taut and exciting.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

The Hurt Locker is not a conventional approach to wartime heroics but rather a penetrating and harrowing examination of war's unrelenting damage on the human psyche.

The Hurt Locker is horrifying. It's hopeless. I want to go see it again.

Film Comment Magazine

Her new film, The Hurt Locker, is both a structuralist war movie-it could be titled 'Seven Instances of Dismantling an Improvised Explosive Device'-and a totally immersive, off-the-charts high-anxiety experience from beginning to end.

Deadspin

This is an outstanding war film because it's aware that it's a film, not a polemic.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

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.

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.

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.

July 7, 2010

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.

Fan The Fire

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.

The opening scene alone may well be the most insanely gripping and amazingly constructed cinematic moment you'll see all year.
