This movie is just brilliant, it was and awesome theater experience, everything about it was great, the editing, the sound mixing, the shaky camera work, the solid performances and the flawless direction from Bigelow make this entire movie feel so real and non pretentious.
I'm not a war movies fan, not at all, but after seeing this one I must start to make my research about war movies that are considered classics to see if they reach The Hurt Locker's level.
The plot is totally gripping and the every scene is shot with such an intensity that totally gets your full attention. From beginning to end. The final scene was just awesome, such a great way to finish this solid and concise movie that doesn't focus on the drama of the life-death situations that war creates, otherwise it focuses on the main character and the situations that he creates.
The main character (Academy award nominated Jeremy Renner) gives the most honest depiction of a fearless man that I have seen in a long time.
I totally recommend that you watch this movie on a big screen with a good sound system so you can feel the rush, this is in my opinion some top-notch, high-quality film making.
