The fact is some soldiers, for one reason or another, like the thrill of war. Sgt. James is one such soldier. Not one to do things by the book, James is right at the centre of this devastating action film. Unhinged, but not without his demons, James regularly comes into conflict with his new teammates: the aspirational but conventional Sgt. Sanborn and rabbit in the headlights Spc. Eldridge. The proverbial `hurt locker' is one they barely keep shut. There's a job to be done, even if it does draw them closer to hell with each passing moment.
