‘Hurt Locker’: The cost of heroism

Like every war before it, the U.S. invasion of Iraq has generated its share of movies. “The Hurt Locker” is the first of them that can properly be called a masterpiece.

Working from a screenplay by Mark Boal (based on his experiences as an embedded journalist with U.S. troops), director Kathryn Bigelow accomplishes two difficult things: She crafts a taut and harrowing movie in which the suspense level rarely dips below excruciating, and she delivers an exceptionally detailed, first-hand account of the day-to-day existence of U.S. soldiers, the way “Platoon” did for Vietnam or “Saving Private Ryan” did for World War II.
