the hurt locker is the film about an elite group of soldiers working on one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, disarming explosive devices in baghdad.

i have no idea why this film has been chosen as best picture in academy award. the only exciting moment for me is the ambush scene in the desert with sniper thing. the rest is just boring me to death, not to mention the shaky camera. one question, why guy pearce has to die at the beginning?
