Director - Kathryn Bigelow
Genre - Action/Drama/Thriller/War
This is just waaaay overrated. It felt as if we were trapped in twilight zone when we finally watched the film and thought about the string of accolades it had received. Nothing about the story or the way it was directed hinted to us of a great movie. In fact, it was so disenchantingly unchallenging and typically mediocre that we were outraged. It goes on and on showing scenes and situations which highlight the dangerous nature of disposing bombs. Duh? And we had no idea that it wasn't a safe job before? If this movie wins for Best Picture we're not going to watch the Oscars ever again. It isn't bad per se, just not as good as it has been made out to be.
