The Hurt Locker (2008)

Forced to play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse in the chaos of war, an elite Army bomb squad unit must come together in a city where everyone is a potential enemy and every object could be a deadly bomb.

A Fire Within

I did a tour as a combat engineer in Afghanistan, and during bomb training we had a lot of good laughs about what NOT to do, as seen in this movie. It is so unrealistic it almost becomes a comedy.

The realism of this film is approximately that of Rambo. That this won an Oscar is shocking.

To sum it up I'd say the movie was the same scene shown about five or six times in a row.
