Weekend DVD 3: The Losers (2010)

Anyone Else Would Be Dead By Now.

The Losers (2010) is an action movie adapted from the Vertigo comic book series of the same name. The movie's plot is about double-crossing and revenge that centers upon five members of an elite United States Special Forces team.

During a search and destroy mission in the Bolivian jungle, the team members - Clay (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Roque (Idris Elba), Pooch (Columbus Short), Jensen (Chris Evans), and Cougar (Óscar Jaenada) are betrayed by Max, an unseen and ruthless enemy.

Presumed dead, the group has to stay in Bolivia. When a mysterious woman, Aisha (Zoe Saldana) offers them the chance to go back to the United States in exchange of Max, they take the risk to work with her despite doubting her real intentions.

This movie is comic booky enough for action comic book lovers to watch. The main selling point is each character with their distinctive personality and skills.

* Colonel Clay - Operational Control (Super cool team leader.)

* Cougar - Long-range Eliminations (Superb sniper!)

* Jensen - Comms & Tech (Team's brain.)

* Pooch - Transpo & Heavy Weps (Happy-go-lucky dude.)

* Roque - Demo & Tactical (Self-centered idiot.)

* Aisha - Search & Destroy (Ass-kicking chick. Zoe Saldana is Aisha - Neytiri in Avatar.)

It's a fun movie, neither dreadfully satire nor comical, so you won't find yourself watching a somber movie with gruesome killings all the time.

Check out these funny conversation liners.

*After Pooch was shot...
Jensen: Can you stand?
Pooch: I've been shot in *both* of my legs. What kind of dumb-ass question is that, really?
Jensen: So now we're Mister Grumpy-pants? You know, you're not the only one who got shot today.

*Not long after that...
Clay: Pooch, can you stand?
Pooch: Oh. Oh, this is Stupid Question Day. This is Stupid Question Day, and nobody decided to tell me! Naw, that's cool. It's all good.
Jensen: Come on, Legless Pooch, I got ya.

Catch this movie on DVD if you haven't watch it on the big screens. :)
