The critically acclaimed Kathryn Bigelow-directed film The Hurt Locker is out on DVD and Blu-ray this week. The film depicts Staff Sergeant William James (Jeremy Renner), leader of an elite squad of specialists commissioned to disarm bombs in the midst of conflict in the war-torn Middle East. The Hurt Locker presents a new, and gritty kind of modern warfare storytelling that packs a visceral punch. A great film that should not be missed. By far, one of the best movies of 2009.
