An intense portrayal of elite soldiers who have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: disarming bombs in the heat of combat. When a new sergeant, James, takes over a highly trained bomb disposal team amidst violent conflict, he surprises his two subordinates, Sanborn and Eldridge, by recklessly plunging them into a deadly game of urban combat, behaving as if he's indifferent to death. As the men struggle to control their wild new leader, the city explodes into chaos, and James' true character reveals itself in a way that will change each man forever.Written by

Jordan is such a safe location that the actors didn't want to have bodyguards, as was first intended. There was no Jordanian military acting as security for the film. Security, set dressing and onset, was provided by a private company. See more »
James would not have been able to put out the raging car fire with a single medium sized fire extinguisher. See more »
Surprisingly bad.... Although Bigelow thought of American soldiers, this wasn't the best tribute...
I am totally surprised that the critics are praising this one. Yes, we all understand the efforts of American soldiers and I have nothing against them. But this movie totally degrades an experience that could truly have been marvelous. The movie makers had a lovely chance of making a classic cinema. This truly is an example of politics. The movie is... But certainly not Oscar worthy. (The special effects too are not worthy)
I agree that there are intensifying shots in the movie. But they are only "shots" not the whole movie itself. The trailer did impress me. The starting scene is amazing. But the graph goes down very rapidly. There are moments of emotions but then, which war movie doesn't?
Please don't rent this if want to enjoy a nice Sunday, even if this was the last thing on the entire Earth...Instead I suggest you "Black Hawk Down" or any action movie like Guns of Navorone, Saving Private Ryan(must see. Please see this if you haven't!!!),etc.
