Wars tend to serve as a starting point for major stories in cinema. The latest fighting, the Iraqi conflict, has been explored recently, but no work was actually able to make a record and astounding natural on the intricacies of military occupation in a country where the enemy is not an army, but Yes, insurgents prepared to give his life for the sole purpose of killing the occupants, however that not all combatants Americans agree with the reasons for which they are forced to face death every day.
War on Terror is devoted to showing the last days in Iraq of a detachment of elite specialist in disarming bombs and attacks in the investigation of the use of this artifact. Meticulous approach in daily life of these soldiers, the film seems almost a documentary of the astounding daily lives of men who agree with the uncertainty of arriving alive at the end of the work and attending the trivialization davida, not realizing that sometimes that feeling already is rooted in themselves.
In that sense, the character played by Jeremy Renner is the richest and interesting. Escaping the stereotype of the sergeant who despises substitute and mistreats his inferiors in the line of command, the script explores the personality of a man who mixes pleasure with fighting with moments of pure humanity and that, therefore, generate compassion for the viewer understand the love that man for their work. And that is why the end of the War on Terror has become so emblematic.
Jeremy explores the richness of his character and makes it even more interesting through her expressive performance and sober, even bringing to life a complex character and could, depending on the composition, arouse antipathy in the viewer. Its performance is outstanding and contributes to one of the main features of the feature: the unforgettable interpretations. Anthony Mackie, interpreter Sarborn sergeant, already appears as a man wearing that, like the signs of the film, counting the days to leave Iraq. And as the story progresses, the character increases their degradation and Mackie conveys the emotional wear sergeant without saying much. The soldier Eldridge, played by Brian Geraghty, is what transpires over their feelings, their outsourcing partners have reached their limit and condemning all the time, even between the lines, that war he considers absurd.
The wealth in the compositions, and who would qualify the squad for the awards for best collective performance of the year, would probably not be achieved if it were not the work of director Kathryn Bigelow, who dominates the narrative elements with precision. Bigelow explores the features of camera seamlessly, creating an atmosphere of constant tension to the show to the public peace impossible in a war, even in moments of leisure - games that are often associated with violence, such as games where the pleasure greater strike blows against the companions of posting.
Besides a portrait of the conflict, War on Terror is a competent demonstration of man's nature that put in danger and extreme risk, often lose their humanity to act on primal instincts such as aggression - physical or psychological - or be overcome by feelings of hatred. Sometimes leaving aside the humanity, even when such behavior is not a consequence of the pressures of a war, but rather because in a battle to find the ideal space to let emerge the most primitive instincts of man, without it transformed into a feeling of guilt.
