A good film but not necessarily, in my opinion a multi Oscar winner.

The movie only made about 16 million US$ compared to Avatar's almost 3 billion US$ (revenue from the movie theatres only).
Judge for yourself who's the winner here! ;-)

Sorry, plot? Hurt Locker had a plot? There were 3 defusal mini-events and the rest was useless time filler. It wasn't a good movie by any measure.

Over hyped film IMO..

just cos someone has an opinion and doesn't like a film doesn't make it fail lol.

I didn't really get this film but I think another view is needed because of all the 'hype' it received

absolutely right imo, far too much bull and riddled with cliches, i cant fathom why all the critics and award panels went bananas about it, maybe partly influenced by the reality of those currently serving their country and any criticism might tarnish the respect and appreciation we have for them.

On a side note it will be interesting to see how successful the film producers are of suing around 50,000 individuals for watching a pirate copy of the film online - they feel this is partly why the film suffered in theatres.

it only got 'hype' after it started getting oscar nominations because people actually got round to watching it. I saw it in the cinema on release day and here was 6 other people (not inc gf) in the screen! It was largely ignored on release by everyone. It wasnt like everyone was in watching district 9 either...

besides I didn't start the posting film opinion on the deal forum... but i do enjoy discussing films so if you start im gonna contribute ;). My friend after (eventually) seeing this film said "I cant remember last time i watched a film the was so easily 10/10 and still had so much awesomeness left over when it finished...."

Just so, so funny. It was pure Hollywood, any similarities to real EOD activities is purely coincidental.

think you'll find it wasnt till the nominations for it came through that people started to DL it so much... "The war film has been a huge success on torrent sites. The day after the movie bagged an Oscar or two, ‘the hurt locker’ was the most typed in search phrase on torrents and obviously, download numbers skyrocketed"

not that BW is necessarily the most irrefutable source....

Haha the worst film I have seen in a long time! Forget about buying it on Blu-Ray, was the biggest waste of my 2 hours ever!! Except that movie Magnolia - which was on par with this rubbish!

Blurting out 'fail' isn't discussing.

Personally, it was a decent enough film.

Hollywood loved it because it was relatively apolitical, it was relatively cheap and it had a chick director.

I saw it after the hype had started building and it just 'failed' to blow me away. As 'war on terror' films went, I thought The Messenger was the better film that year and in the great pantheon of war movies, I don't think The Hurt Locker would be in my top ten.

But it's decent, although I would've thought it would be cheaper than this by now.:?

Really? The characters were all fairly generic to me, nothing that original there at all and bits of the plot were things that just wouldn't have in real life. All this stopped me really buying into any of the charactterisation or really caring too much about the characters.

The film looked great and they managed kept the disarming sequences tense so I did enjoy the movie, I was just surprised that it got so much attention and won so many awards. I certainly wouldn't bother watching it again though and the people I watched it with were bored by the end and they aren't stupid people, they just didn't care.

This is coming from someone who hasn't seen Avatar by the way. People are entitled to have their own opinions on a movie, anyone who feels they need to defend a movie by insulting the other person clearly can't argue their case very well.

Loved Magnolia though :) Although I am a big fan of Aimee Mann's music.

Its not? seems to be acceptable forum-speak these days along with FTW, pwan, etc... No?

maybe they still trying to recoup the D/L losses. Or maybe its cos its still selling? D9 isnt 'cheap' yet or DK or Watchmen i dont think... still about this price no?

If you want to speak like that, go for it. Personally it's not for me.

You're probably right about the price, although I thought it would have been about £7 by now - maybe I'm out of touch on the BR prices.

This is probably one of those films that would've been better if it hadn't been hyped up to such an extent. It really didn't live up to it for me and a lot of other people, but the Academy Awards got to say that they had their first female 'best director' so they were happy.;-)

Fair. But the point was the 'filler' parts are there otherwise the '3 defusal scenes' would have just been completely without context (and it would also only be a short film ;) ). I wasn't alluding to the quality of the characterisation just that its a requirement for the story no? given the previous description of "There were 3 defusal mini-events and the rest was useless time filler"

by the same rational you could reduce anything with that criticism - Gladiator 3 big fights and mini-events and the rest usless time filler...first example that came to mind...

Yeah personally i think Jane Campion should have got it for Piano....
#26
Good deal - agree that film is well overrated though !
#27
it was ok, but not good enough to stop me selling it once i had watched it!
#28
A pretty average film imo, and the sniper scenes were just plain stoopid. A US bomb disposal guy suddenly becoming an expert sniper with a Barrett - all the while staying exposed on a ridge while waiting for ammo - and all this after an expert insugent sniper has picked off three of his guys from a over a kilo away? Balls.
#29
I thought it was good, more original than Avator which is probably why it won the Oscars. Most people I've talked to usually notice the story of Avator is similar to other stories in various mediums and if it wasn't for the visuals it probably would have gotten a 7 out of 10 max. The Hurt Locker had an original story and less cgi so it was quite refreshing to me, especially as I wasn't expecting anything special.
#30
Thought it was a good movie but definatley not the best film of the year. Very tense film all the way through, worth a watch.
