THE LOSERS (2010)
Movie review by David Blackwell
 
98 minutes, Rated PG-13
ASPECT RATIO:  2.35:1
STUDIO:  Warner Bros. Pictures/ Dark Castle Entertainment/ Vertgo DC Comics/ Weed Road Pictures
Theatrical RELEASE DATE:  4-23-2010
 
STARRING Chris Evans (Jensen), Zoe Saldana (Aisha), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Clay), Irdis Elbra (Roque), Columbus Short (Pooch), Oscar Jaenada (Cougar), Holt McCallany (Wade), Jason Patric (Max)
SCREENPLAY by Peter Berg and James Vanderbilt, based on Vertigo comic series written by Andy Diggle
DIRECTED by Sylvain White

Clay (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his unit are soldiers who work for the CIA.  Their mission in Bolivia goes wrong when the one who ordered the mission (the mysterious Max (Jason Patric)) decides to destroy a drug compound with kids there.  Clay and his team rescue the kids only to have Max decide to kill the team (and the kids end up being killed instead).   Clay and his team (Pooch, Roque, Cougar, and Jensen) are believed to be dead by Max, but they get their chance to take Max out when a mysterious woman named Aisha (Zoe Saldana).   Max wants to sell some sonic destruction weapons called Snooks to terrorists and it is up to Clay's team to stop Max (and get revenge on Max).

THE LOSERS is the second entertaining comic book film in two weeks  (KICK-ASS being the first).   It is a mix of action and humor with quick banter and some quick cut action.   Chris Evans steals the show as ladies man Jensen while Jason Patric runs close second with his quirky over-the-top performance of Max.   Some of the action is too quick-cut while the humor keeps things moving and make you love the characters.   I wouln't mind seeing a seuqel and the film has me curious to check out THE LOSERS comic series (which this film is loosely based on the first six issues).   Stay arround for the credits for an extra scene.   THE LOSERS will entertain anyone who looks for an action cocktail mixed with humor and a high mix of bodies and explosions.
