A Mini-Movie Review: The Losers (2010)

The Losers (2010)
Director - Sylvain White
Release date: 23 April 2010
PG-13; 98 min

Zoe Saldana - Aisha
Chris Evans - Jensen
Idris Elba - Roque

I spent more time copy/pasting the credits from than I am going to spend with this review.

The "Losers" are a band of American operatives caught up in a lame conflict with a rogue CIA employee named Max (Jason Patric) that results in their unfounded deaths and self imposed exile in Bolivia while they work to get themselves home under the radar.

The movie is filled from start to finish with typical genre generalities that cannot be ignored for the sake of 'just enjoying the movie.' I suppose if you have never once seen a film about a band of outcasts out for revenge then maybe this will hold your attention, but not mine.

** out of 5
