Film review

on April 18, 2010

Ok, so I finally went to see “The Hurt Locker” last night, to see what all the Oscars fuss was about mainly.  But also because I had seen the trailer for the movie and thought that it actually looked like it was quite well done, with lots of cool camera angles and effects.

Hopefully I don’t put anyone off who wants to see the movie, who hasn’t yet, but for me, the trailer was about as good as the movie got sadly!

I wasn’t really expecting to be too blown away because I don’t particularly like “war” type movies at the best of times, but the story seemd to move extremely slowly, and jumped from one time to another quite abruptly sometimes also; the fact that it had quite bad language littered liberally throughout also did not endeer it to me much either 😦  I mean, I’m sure soldiers don’t have perfect language at the best of times, but these things can be over done, I feel.

And I was totally disappointed in the ending!  Ha ha – maybe I’m just too much of a girl, but I was left most unsatisfied by it all 😉

2 out of 5 stars for me!

    I think the movie was more Hollywood buzz and Oscar things then say a good movie. Funny I never go see an Oscar buzz movie to see what it’s about. The only war type movie I’ve see is ‘Saving Private Ryan’ and that’s it. Just don’t like war movies.
