CRITIC'S PICK

'The Hurt Locker'

July 02, 2009|Kenneth Turan

It's no good moaning about how there's nothing to see this summer except movies based on toys. If you want adult films in theaters, you have to support the good ones the way kids support "Transformers" -- without reservation. Out right now is one of the year's best films, Kathryn Bigelow's "The Hurt Locker." It's got the killer impact of the explosive devices that are the heart of its plot: It simply blows you apart and doesn't bother putting you back together again. Overwhelmingly tense, overflowing with crackling verisimilitude, it's the film to see right now.
