The Losers is about a team of ex-military guys seeking revenge on the CIA criminal guy who messed up their lives. The movie is based on a DC Comic of the same name.
The Losers is action from start to finish with plenty of shootouts, explosions, and crazy driving. The team: Clay, Jensen (played by human torch guy), Roque, Pooch and Cougar are targeted in Bolivia. Their boss “Max” (also my cat’s name) attempts to kill them and assumes they’re dead when a helicopter they were supposed to be on is destroyed.
Months later a mysterious woman named Aisha (Zoe Saldana of Avatar) contacts them with a business proposition that involves them killing Max. Of course, they agree.
This movie was great. It was stylish without being snooty artistic, and most of the characters were appealing in various unique ways.
The only aspect of the movie that bugged me was the bad guy. There is zero character development for him, and he comes off more annoying nerd than ominous villain.
Overall, the movie is quite awesome. It gets an A-.
The end of the movie set the story up for a sequel, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. It made 2 mill less than it cost to make. Boooooo….
Later this week: a rant, book working or random updates, and perhaps a review-ish of Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter if I finish it.
