When a new sergeant, James, takes over a highly trained bomb disposal team amidst the Iraq War, he surprises his two subordinates, Sanborn and Eldridge, by recklessly plunging them into a deadly game of urban combat. As the men struggle to control their new leader, the city explodes into chaos.

MUBI's take

Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win a Best Director Oscar® with this tense drama, which moves the “war movie” off the battlefield and into a volatile stalemate against an invisible enemy. Based on the screenwriter’s experience as an embedded reporter in Iraq.
