When it comes to the raw emotion of fear, the fight or flight instinct, it seems no one has it master more than members of bomb squads. By their own volition, they put themselves in situations that the majority of of sane people would run from. What makes their brain different? How are they able to maintain composure under such life threatening circumstances? Unfortunately, I don’t have the answers (chapter in future book?)
The Hurt Locker, an upcoming movie about the war in Iraq, looks to make visceral the experience of the leader of an US Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit. The reviews thus far have nothing but praise for The Hurt Locker and the trailer looks amazing.
This seems to be in position to be a sleeping giant of the summer and I for one will definitely make a trip to see it.
