Well, that was a ride!

An intense portrayal of elite soldiers who have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: disarming bombs in the heat of combat. When a new sergeant, James, takes over a highly trained bomb disposal team amidst violent conflict, he surprises his two subordinates, Sanborn and Eldridge, by recklessly plunging them into a deadly game of urban combat. James behaves as if he’s indifferent to death. As the men struggle to control their wild new leader, the city explodes into chaos, and James’ true character reveals itself in a way that will change each man forever.

I really liked this movie. Quite a bit. Definitely deserved to win against Avatar, that’s for darn sure! The characters were interesting. The story was good and what surprised me most about the story is that it was a character-driven story, not a plot-driven one; it’s pretty unusual, I think. The action sequences were incredibly well filmed and the editing of the film was absolutely fantastic.

While the film was incredibly fantastic, I was a bit disappointed by the morale at the end. I mean, now that’s just my own personal opinion. This film is fantastic. I highly recommend it.
