The Hurt Locker ( Blu-ray )

War is a drug. Nobody knows that better than Staff Sergeant James (Jeremy Renner), stationed in Iraq and head of an elite squad of soldiers tasked with disarming bombs in the heat of combat. To do this nerve-shredding job, it's not enough to be the best: you have to thrive in a zone where the margin of error is zero, think as diabolically as a bomb-maker, and somehow survive with your body and soul intact. Powerfully realistic, action-packed, unrelenting and intense, "The Hurt Locker" has been hailed by critics as "an adrenaline-soaked tour de force" (A.O. Scott, The New York Times) and "one of the great war movies." (Richard Corliss, Time). Winner of six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director (Kathryn Bigelow) and Best Original Screenplay (Mark Boal).
