This is Definitely Not a Loser
6 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Losers is a film about a group of specially trained soldiers known as "The Losers," who basically deal with some of the toughest assignments the government has to offer, but when the group is framed and left for dead, they have to fight to get their lives back and stop an evil mastermind from creating a new world war.

Directed by Sylvain White, this action-packed movie is full of funny one-liners, intense gun-fights and good acting for a straight-up action movie. From a script co-penned by Peter Berg, you know from the get-go that it'll be a fun ride (he previously did Hancock and The Kingdom). Jeffery Dean Morgan was fantastic as the typical action hero in the role of Clay, the leader of The Losers. Idris Elba was great as Roque, the closest friend Clay has ever had, and he acts his role with commitment and style. Chris Evans was hilarious as Jensen, the communications operator and field operative who makes noise when they need it; he creates all the great laughs. Columbus Short and Oscar Jaenada were great in their roles as well; Pooch, the driver, and Cougar, the long-range assassin who is better with a sniper than a conversation. And then there's Zoe Saldana as the absolutely beautiful eye-candy Aisha, the ex-CIA operative who is helping The Losers take down Max (played by Jason Patric), the evil mastermind; she has great, sexy take-down moments during the action sequences. The visuals were good, nothing spectacular except for one scene half-way through the film (if you've seen it, you know). The inclusion of some classic songs and tunes helped keep a fun, action-filled atmosphere when nothing serious was happening.

All-in-all, The Losers is a fun thrill ride that has plenty of action and comedy to keep moviegoers interested and wanting more. My only concern is they make a sequel; the ending sets that up perfectly.

8/10 Stars***
