The Hurt Locker 4K Steelbook Unboxing

In Features by Samuel Love

One of the finest war films ever made, Kathryn Bigelow’s Oscar-winning The Hurt Locker finally makes its 4K debut in a beautiful Limited Edition Steelbook release from Lionsgate, available exclusively from Zavvi. The film, with which Bigelow made film history as the first female Best Director Academy Award winner, hadn’t even recovered its budget when it won its six awards (including Best Picture). It went on to be a huge hit worldwide, and is still widely considered one of the finest in its genre.

We took a look at the beautiful new steelbook…


War is a drug. Nobody knows that better than Staff Sergeant James (Jeremy Renner), head of an elite squad of soldiers tasked with disarming bombs in the heat of combat. To do this nerve-shredding job, it’s not enough to be the best: you have to thrive in a zone where the margin of error is zero, think as diabolically as a bomb-maker, and somehow survive with your body and soul intact.

Powerfully realistic, action-packed, unrelenting and intense, The Hurt Locker has been hailed by critics as “an adrenaline-soaked tour de force” (A.O. Scott, The New York Times) and “one of the great war movies” (Richard Corliss, Time).
