The Hurt Locker is the new film from director Kathryn Bigelow, of Strange Days and Point Break previously. The war thriller is based on recently declassified information about a U.S. Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) (bomb squad) team in present day Iraq. This is a cat-and-mouse film where everyone is a potential target or enemy. Jeremy Renner (S.W.A.T. and TV’s The Unusuals) plays the leader of the EOD team, as he contends with not only defusing bombs, but also the psychological and emotional strain that it inflicts. The film co-stars Anthony Mackie and Brian Geraghty as well as Guy Pearce, Ralph Fiennes and Evangeline Lilly.
