This is the second trailer for The Hurt Locker, Point Break director Katherine Bigelow’s latest, centering on the Explosive Ordinance Disposal squad – basically, the bomb squad of the Iraqi occupation force.
…based on the first-hand observations of journalist and screenwriter Mark Boal [who also wrote In the Valley of Elah], who was embedded with a special bomb unit in Iraq. It is a gripping portrayal of real-life sacrifice and heroism and a layered, probing study of the soul-numbing rigors and potent allure of the modern battlefield. [Apple]
