Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Adapted from the Vertigo comic book series comes The Losers, an action movie about a group of badass ex-CIA black ops operatives who go on a rogue mission to take down the corrupt individual who tried to kill them. How is director Sylvain White's first action movie after directing Stomp the Yard? Is it a fun and entertaining movie worth the ticket price? How are all of the characters, from Jeffrey Dean Morgan to Chris Evans to Zoe Saldana to Idris Elba? Was it too cheesy or just fun to watch? If you've seen it, then leave a comment below and let us know what you thought of The Losers!
To fuel the fire, I enjoyed The Losers, I had a good time, but it's not really one of the best movies this year. It's a bit formulaic and at times it feels like the same action movie we've seen many times before. That said, it lived up to my tempered expectations and I walked out smiling. Chris Evans was unquestionably the highlight (along with watching Zoe Saldana in lingerie kicking some ass and making out with Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Although he did a good job, I got a little tired of how ridiculously cheesy Jason Patric was as the villain "Max." It's fun and it is worth the ticket price, but I think I'll forget about The Losers fairly quickly.
What did you think of The Losers? A good entertaining comic book movie or dull and boring?
