The Hurt Locker - New EOD Film

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just saw this. Not sure when it's out but definitely worth a watch. It follows a small US EOD team in Iraq. No politics, no background stories as such, just the guys on the ground doing the job.

    Apparently it was filmed on location in Jordan and as such has quiet a gritty authentic feel to it.

    Some of the kit doesn't look right, such as M113's being used on the streets of Baghdad, but apart from that its more than watchable.

    Some superb cameos from the likes of Guy Pearce and Ralph Fiennes, playing a private security contractor.

    Not sure how accurate it is technically with regards to EOD seeing as I know nothing about the subject.

    Well recommended and worth watching out for when it comes out on DVD
