User Review

Predictable but enjoyable

Rating: 8/10


I think people are being too hard on this movie. It's a big shiny
explosions movie, with nothing especially new plot wise, to be sure,
but who goes to action movies for plot? Not me! Clever repartee, good
looking men (Saldana is hot, yes, but I'm female so … Evans and
Morgan, I'm lookin' at you), a villain landing somewhere between James
Bond and Austin Powers, helicopter stunts, big guns, and big
explosions. Good times.

Some great locations, good editing (also nice marriage of comic book
style to live action style in the credits),decent soundtrack.

The Losers doesn't take itself too seriously, and neither should you.
