Welcome to Ian's world of awesome film reviews, mostly of films that left the cinema ages ago. First up we have this one, about US army bomb disposal guys in Iraq. I saw it in Bristol, of all places. The Hurt Locker is not quite as brilliant as some people think it is, but still an impressive war film; its lack of a Big Point about the war in Iraq was most laudable. I also thought it was great that the film did not turn into a battle of wits between the bomb disposal guy and some sinister terrorist mastermind.
