The Hurt Locker - A

I've been really curious about this film ever since last July, and when all the critics were saying how it was the best film of the year, I just had to rent it this week. I'm glad I did. This is an experience to be had if you love movies. It's probably the essential war in Iraq movie we'll get, and man was it really good. I really liked the tension of this movie. From the moving camera, to the action scenes building and building to a climax that means something, and the quietness of it representing the horror of the job of defusing bombs in a war zone, I was just really impressed with everything. Renner was great as James, and the co-stars were great as well.

I did have a question though. I wasn't really clear on the title. Could anyone explain why it's called The Hurt Locker?
