Review Of : The Hurt Locker

Bookmark and Share

I had just watched ' The Hurt Locker ' on tonton.com.my  

This movie had won 6 Oscars with 3 nominations.
So, I decided to watch this movie on tonton.com.my .

The storyline goes by a team of soldiers who are to disarm bombs in the heat of combat in Iraq.
A new sergeant, James tookover a highly trained bomb disposal team he surprises his two subordinates, Sanborn and Eldridge, by recklessly plunging them into a deadly game of urban combat. 

Well, the movie in my opinion, is like a part of District 9  because of the movement of the camera of a few scenes ( e.g. we are following the cameraman. )

And also a part like World Trade Center because the story is only about this a particular individual/group
(e.g. Sergeant James/ his team of bomb disposal team )

Its sort of like a documentary movie without documentation..

My Rating?

Plot : 3.5/5
Storyline : 3/5
Graphics* : 4.25/5
OVERALL : 7/10.

Maybe my expectations for the movie was too high for this movie..

The movie is quite suspense & their graphics were quite good..

It may have been a little overrated at the Oscars, but it was definitely better fare than Avatar. Of course it beat Avatar. If Avatar won the Oscar for best film, I would lose respect for the Academy. Avatar is like Pocahontas replaced with blue aliens and John Smith sleeping in a simulation machine. James Cameron took 10 years to write Pocahontas in space? No wonder his ex-wife's movie beat him.

The Hurt Locker is still a pretty good watch, at least if it had come out in Malaysia, it would've been more worth my money than going to see Avatar. The 3D was also less-spectacular than How To Train Your Dragon. :S
