This movie had a plot .. I think. But the single vehicle, 3 guys on a mission and no night vision was completely unbelievable. There were no tense moments if you consider comparison to movies like Deer Hunter or Platoon. Frankly, I do not know why Hurt Locker was even nominated. Avatar was superior in every way. A waste of time to watch Hurt Locker .. painful viewing. My "C" rating is probably a little high.
