Becky and I went to see the movie The Losers last week at the AMC Theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO last week with our friends Rod & Kimberly Tactaquin. The Fandango website at The Losers describes the movie as follows:
“On a mission deep in the Bolivian jungle, a team of elite commandos (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chris Evans) find themselves on the receiving end of a lethal betrayal. Now presumed dead, the men join forces with a mysterious operative named Aisha (Zoe Saldana) to hunt down their enemy and even the score…”
The Losers is an action packed flick that is rated PG-13 and definitely should have been rated R for the violence. Becky didn’t like the movie since it should have been rated R and thought it was too disturbing since there were so many teenagers in the theater. I totally agree with Becky that it should have been rated R.
However, Kimberly, Rod and I all liked it and thought it was a good action flick, if you like action flicks. It’s not overly original, but the characters were kind of like the A-Team, with a group of misfits that have been setup by the bad guy. The bad guy was played by Jason Patric of Lost Boys fame and he’s not a nice guy, but extremely evil. It’s not a great movie, but the chemistry between the characters was fun and it’s far incredibly fetched like most action movies.
The Losers is a movie also based on a comic book series and is one of the reasons why it’s so far fetched, but it has some cool cinematography and very wild characters. I’m going to rate it Worth The Trip for action enthusiasts and because I liked it, but it’s probably a rental for most people.
