2.0 starsThe Losers - 5/2/2010

Tonight I went with my friend Alex to Movies 10 to see The Losers.  This action movie starred Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Zoe Saldana.  With Chris Evans, Idris Elba, Columbus Short and Oscar Jaenada.

This movie starts off on the wrong foot.  The first scene is a complete rip-off of Clear and Present Danger starring Harrison Ford.  Our heroes are in the South America jungle where they point a laser at the bad guy's house to guide a air-launched missile.  Once the weapon is inbound and cannot be stopped, a group of children appear at the home, causing our heroes to second guess their choices.

The movie makes up for this with a ton of action.

Near the end of the movie, just when you think they are about to reveal a great story twist... nothing.  No twist.

Zoe Saldana is lovely on screen.  I fell in love with her when I saw her in Star Trek.

The Losers a good movie.  You might want to check it out.
