<p>Finally watched The Hurt Locker. It was compelling, strongly acted, solidly produced. Not sure I get all the award-winning accolades, though. What is it about the movie that inspired all the favorable criticism that I missed?</p>

<p>Although I loved the movie, I understand what you are getting at.   I don't think there was much of a point...and we are used to that.   think of it more as a documentary of the guy's life.  </p>

<p>Yeah, that's the idea I got - it had more of a documentary feel to it, which is fine. I really liked the authenticity of the acting and production but just kept waiting for something to emerge that justified the accolades. Probably over-anticipated it,</p>

Naw, you gotta see it, just so you can relate to all the pop culture references to it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But, it's not all that.  (or a bag of chips)</p>

<p>I think that if you watch the movie thinking it will be this incredible story that will blow you away then you won't get the accolades. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>the movie is powerful because of the way the scenes were shot...the camera work and sound add more drama than any dialogue could.   I need to watch it again.  I think it will be better if viewed a few times.</p>

Don't go crazy, just don't expect high art. <br>
