It is quite boring in certain scenes. In fact, an episode of the TV series "24" has more action, suspense, drama and plot than this movie. Don't bother watching it on the big screen. Even when it comes out on DVD or payTV I'd be hard-pressed to see it again. You are better off watching a Steven Seagal movie - at least there you know it is escapist.
I rated "The Hurt Locker" a 5 out of 10. What was the academy thinking?
