Certificate 15

Kathryn Bigelow’s riveting, rightly acclaimed drama about the experiences of the various members of a US bomb-disarmament squad during the war in Iraq benefits from a fine script by Mark Boal, based on his observations as a journalist embedded in the American forces in 2004. Tense, taut and meticulously mounted, the film excels in depicting the psychological and emotional havoc wreaked by the soldiers’ work.
