Rambo's Review of The Hurt Locker
The Hurt Locker(2009)
So overrated dont know where to start. The politics in this film and why it was given so much credit is beyond ridiculous. More empathy for the billions in the war we , yes, we, are paying for. The drama is gripping, as well as the aggression and frustration of the overall situation presented accurately. Though the mystery behind who was trained to develop these bombs, the underlying truth of covert CIA cover ups or just the truth in relation to how this region in the world became so deadly, is not uncovered. We can assume the death and distruction is from those who are violent killers, but we are not in Germany, these villains are not nazis, the enemy is poor, destitute, displaced, enraged and more than likely 3rd generation soldier. Our compassion for those involved on our side is compelling, but lacking the true purpose behind the mind of suicide. Need a real account of this tragic war, look to the HBO mini series 'Generation Kill'.
