I watched "The Hurt Locker" the day after it came out, and all I can say is "Eh".
I'm not saying it was bad - I'll actually be buying it at some point - but it wasn't as good as I hoped. I know that's because I'm married to Rich and he really does those things in realy life, so a movie about his job doesn't compare.
It did get my hurt pumping - especially when he pulled up the 'come-along' (pictures below, and Rich says that those are way to heavy for him to pull that many up), and I enjoyed seeing the change in the main character as he dealt with everything during deployment.
I had moments where I laughed, one where I cried, and anger when they screwed it up. Hello, EOD doesn't let Engineers do their job - theres a huge rivalry between the two. EOD is the people that difuse the bombs, get it right. Phew.
