I recently watched The Hurt Locker, a story about an elite bomb squad in the middle of a war in the middle east. Danger is everywhere, and a bomb can be hidden where you least expect it.
This is a decent movie, but did not quite meet the high expectations of an Oscar winner. It was slow and too emotionally disconnected at times, even though there were a couple of amazing scenes as well. After reading some reviews online, many people claim that there were an enormous amount of inaccuracies in the display of the US soldiers.
As for recommending this movie, you should absolutely see it, but make sure not to have too high hopes for it, even though it is an Oscar winner. If you can see past the errors in military protocol, it has a decent entertainment value.
