Sure, you might think that The A Team are #1, the only ones for the job, or the heroes. Well they might want to take a step back because here comes The Losers, a special force team that, like The A Team have fun doing their job. And because of that, the audience has fun watching The Comedian of Watchmen, Uhura of Star Trek, and the upcoming Captain America kick some serious butt throughout parts all over the world.
The Losers consists of the worlds deadliest and most reliable U.S. soldiers. That's until the mysterious Max attempts to assassinate them and frame them for the murder of 25 children. These men survived the attack, but they have been proclaimed dead and they can't get back home to the U.S. But one day, a mysterious woman by the name of Aisha comes with a proposition for the team: They will be able to come back to the U.S. permanently, but they have to find, and kill Max. So if they want they're lives back, they have to steal it.
If you're looking for mindless action, funny comedy, and lots of guns, then this is the movie for you. All of the cast seems like they're having a fun time doing what they're doing. But the most fun and the best character in this movie is Chris Evans, who you'd probably know from the Fantastic Four series whom he played the Human Torch in. This guy is hilarious and super fun to watch. I'm pretty sure he likes the band "Journey" a lot, since in some of the scenes he's in, they play the hit song "Don't Stop Believin" which is mainly used in the comedic effect. All of the other cast members, including Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, and Idris Elba seem to also be having fun making this, which is really one of the key elements of why this movie is so good.
I do find this movie very similar to The A Team, which did come out just over a month after this one. But to be honest, I really didn't care about the similarities, because I enjoyed them both. Really, If you see one of them, you saw them both in a way, but I'd still recommend seeing them both, whether you see this or The A Team first. But either way, they are both very fun, very funny movies.
So overall, The Losers is a fun and fast movie that'll kepp you watching until the credits stop. And I do mean that since there are a couple of snippets during the credits. If you enjoy action movies with no point of it actually being made, then this is perfect for you, like The A Team would be. Also, this is the perfect movie for men after a football game with nothing much to do except go back to their family. So if you have nothing to do, hanging out with the guys, or just want to watch something fun, then stop thinking that you're a winner and consider yourself a Loser for a change.
