Starring

Jeremy Renner as Sergeant First Class William James

Anthony Mackie as Sergeant JT Sanborn

Brian Geraghty as Specialist Owen Eldridge

Directed by Katheryn  Bigelow

The title says it all. War is the Locker. Deep psychological film seen through the eyes of three young elite EOD personnel. First, a wild man, verging on suicidal Sgt. James. Second, the straight but undecided to grow-up Sgt. Sanborn. Last, the very young and clueless Specialist Eldrigde.

Indeed a better choice as Best Picture in this year’s Academy Awards. Perfect casting. Excellent sound and score. Watch out for notable “cameos” from Guy Pearce, Ralph Fiennes and Evangeline Lilly.

Verdict: Must see, at least twice.
