'The Hurt Locker'

Kathryn Bigelow directs former embedded journalist Mark Boal’s script about a U.S. Army bomb squad stationed in Iraq, starring Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie and Brian Geraghty. With hand-held camera work intended to bring the audience onto the ground and into the tanks with the team, the film plays as much as a taut thriller as a character piece. While “The Hurt Locker” received acclaim at the Venice and Toronto film festivals, Bigelow is hoping the film — the trailer of which will play before the new “Terminator” — will be equally embraced off the festival circuit. “I wanted to make a classic war film,” she says, “action packed, masculine and portraying the heroism of men who have the most dangerous job in the world.” (June 26) Ed Araquel / Summit Entertainment
