US Army Staff Sergeant Will James, Sergeant J.T. Sanborn and Specialist Owen Eldridge comprise the Bravo Company's bomb disposal unit stationed in Baghdad. James is the tech team leader. When he arrives on the scene, Bravo Company has thirty-nine days left on its current deployment, and it will be a long thirty-nine days for Sanborn and Eldridge whose styles do not mesh with their new leader. James' thrill of the dismantlement seems to be the ultimate goal regardless of the safety of his fellow team members, others on the scene or himself. On the other hand, Sanborn is by the books: he knows his place and duty and trusts others in the army to carry out theirs as well as he. Eldridge is an insecure soldier who is constantly worried that an error or misjudgment on his part will lead to the death of an innocent civilian or a military colleague. While the three members face their own internal issues, they have to be aware of any person at the bomb sites, some of who may be bombers themselves.

Great depiction of a fictional bomb squad in Iraq, interspersed with precarious results!

It may not be realistic, but it is psychologically very realistic. The best war movie since...no idea.

Loved this movie....tense moments

It is a well done movie, but, in the end it makes no statement, whatsoever, of any importance.
Felt like an enormous waste of 2 hours.

I often disagree with Oscar selections; this was another one.
I missed any tension or terror - I saw only testosterone-driven psychotics in a war that hawks love because it advances US values of global domination.

I thought it was okay, not a big fan of war movies. Not much of a plot in this one.

Interesting movie. After seeing it I looked on Wikipedia and saw that the "wild" Jeremy Renner character is really not what the Army is looking for to defuse explosives.

Staff Sergeant William James: There's enough bang in there to send us all to Jesus. I'm gonna die, I wanna die comfortable.

Well if he wasn't an insurgent before, he is one now.

You know, this doesn't have to be a bad time in your life. Going to war is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It could be fun.
