I went and saw The Losers this weekend. I hope some other people go, or else there won't be a part II and I have no idea how the story ends....
The guys have some kick ass weapons in this flick. A lot of what I believe to be LaRue Tactical AR's running about.
Cougar, the team sniper, has a silenced Larue AR-10 that he kills just about everything that moves with. He has a great character and for once the sniper doesn't die in the first 13 minutes of a film.
Francisco will appreciate the guy with the knife fetish. Definitely some cool blades.
The gal from Avatar is in it. Eh. I could take or leave her. She doesn't do anything for me.
The humor is witty, a couple of times I was the only one laughing out loud.
All in all, for a mindless film to kill an hour and a half on a rainy day, I would give it a solid 6 to 6.5/10.
The plot has just enough meat to move along, but you definitely won't miss anything if you have to use the restroom. The action scenes are pretty good. They blow a lot of things up, sometimes with very little reason.
It's worth seeing from the comfort of your couch, but don't go to the theater unless you REALLY like going to the movies and are out of choices.
$25mil production budget, but only $18mil thus far in ticket sales. Doesn't look good for Part II.
