  • The expression "the hurt locker" is a preexisting slang term for a situation involving trouble or pain, which can be traced back to the Vietnam War. According to the movie's website, it is soldier vernacular in Iraq to speak of explosions as sending you to "the hurt locker".
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Jeremy Renner is credited as "Staff Sergeant William James," an E-6. But his character wears the rank of an E-7, Sergeant First Class (3 chevrons and 2 rockers).
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): Specialist Eldridge plays Gears of War (2006) (VG) on an Xbox 360 when Colonel Cambridge enters the room to counsel him. The Xbox 360 was first released 2005; Gears of War debuted in November 2006. Yet the setting is Baghdad in 2004.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the opening scene, when Sergeant Matt Thompson is approaching the bomb he is walking down the train tracks. When the the camera view is switched to inside his helmet it shows the tracks off to his right and dirt in front of him. When they switch views again he's back walking down the tracks.
