27. The Hurt Locker (2009)
Director: Kathryn Bigelow
Stars: Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty, Guy Pearce, David Morse, Ralph Fiennes, Evangeline Lilly, Christian Camargo
A highly trained bomb disposal team in Iraq struggles with a new sergeant (Jeremy Renner), who appears to be a reckless adrenaline junkie. If this taut, well-paced war thriller doesn't make your pulse race, you must be flatlining.
