Another action movie with a group of guys who “save the world” and of course there is a pretty girl who knows how to use a gun. Main character was portrayed by Jeffery Dean Morgan who I know from Supernatural where he played the daddy, he also was in PS: I love you!. In those two I liked him, in the Losers he was kind of okay also. Zoe Saldana played the pretty girl, she lived up to her expectations – she is a pretty girl. Chris Evans portrayed my favorite character – I like those geeky funny guys, they don’t have to do much in order for you to like them.
The movie reminded me a lot of the A-Team, a team of military men were framed and presumed dead – they weren’t bad nor dead. They wanted to go home and when the pretty girl gave them an opportunity they couldn’t pass they had a mission: kill the bad guy. Basically, the typical hero(s) story with a hint of humor now and then. The humor was actually something I liked, plus the little twist in the end was a little surprising but not SO much. The bad guy in the end survived, mission incomplete but the team got home and had a baby (one of them) and saw a soccer match (all of them) and Jeffery got himself some Zoe. All good in the end.
Is it worth the watch, well, I guess it is entertaining and rather enjoyable for an action movie – for a late night chill out movie night with popcorn you might even give it a try. It hasn’t got much humor but there is just enough, especially Chris Evans’ character and his singing/dancing scene – that was good! Was it better than Iron Man 2, maybe – at least I remember it but I think that Iron Man at its core is more the real action movie – but I think that The Losers is better at entertaining the viewers. Iron Man 2 has a better score in IMDb though – so based on my reviews I’d say that IMDb is wrong.. sorry Robert, Jeffery won this one.0
I liked this movie too!
The part where Chris Evans sings and dances in public, I think I haven’t laughed so hard in an action movie in a long time 🙂
Why is he appearing in so many comic book movies in the first place… lol.(Fantastic Four, Push, Losers, Scott Pilgrim, Captain America)
I have no idea.. he does have that Captain America look though..
He seems like a very goofy person to me.. hmm, we’ll see if he pulls it off! 🙂
