The Hurt Locker: Bob Murawski, Chris Innis
Here is your winner. This is a movie that takes you right inside the action with the bomb techs. This film has a very tight, tense feel that makes it feel very personal. There are character moments that drill in on our main characters that work very well, but it is the action sequences where the editing shines. The editors had hundreds of hours of footage from digital and Super 16mm sources to work with, which had to be a chore and a half to work with. They use a great mix of first person perspective, wide shots, and tight close-ups to draw you in and keep your attention. This is a very strong, well paced film. This focus and tight, personal editing is what will push this to the top.
