I saw this movie last night with my cousins.
I found this to be an enjoyable movie, although it will make you mad at parts its worth it.
Although being lonely and watching this movie got me a little down afterwards it was good to sink in to the story line for just a little while.
All in all it was worth watching. So watch it.
The reviews are mixed about this movie. Some say to see it, others say to steer clear of its path.
My opinion is that the movie gives an already scary perspective of what the troops have to go through abroad. I mean i know that i can only imagine what itll be like when i go but this movie helped me realize even the minute stresses of combat.
Now this movie is worth almost as much hype as it got. When I say that i mean yes it was a fantastic movie and the story was phenominal and truly (for me) unforgettable. That is but on side of the coin. There were parts in it for me that i thought couldve used more story to really get into. I felt as if there was not enough of the soldiers backgrounds in order for me to truly become enveloped into the movie.
That was reall its only weakpoint (unfortunately like most movies.)
Cant wait for the directors cut, just to see it better.
In conclusion it is a good movie for us war movie junkies. If you enjoyed "Black Hawk Down" Directed by Ridley Scott, than you would certainly enjoy "The Hurt Locker."
NOTE:If you havent seen "Black Hawk Down" than you should.
