Movie Review: The Losers

Any one else would be dead by now? That's the tagline?


I love movies that don't take themselves too seriously. There are explosions, there are witty one liners, there are guns, there's even a crossbow. HELL THERE IS A REFERENCE TO PIRATES.

What's not to like? You HAVE to go into a movie like this without any expectations. Not even the expectation that you will be pleasantly entertained. I was worried, because the trailers attached to this movie included Step Up 3D and The Takers, a movie starring BOTH Paul Walker and Hayden Christensen. I don't really think anything else needs to be said.

Anyway...The Losers. Poorly thought-out plot? Check. Weak villain that backed by the US government? Check. Bazooka? Check. Wildly enjoyable? Check.

Totally win for a Wednesday night.

Go Petunias.

  1. I eagerly anticipate the glory that is watching trash until my brains dissolve and run out of my facial orifices. That is: this.

    And I mean that in a positive way, of course.

    P.S. - Hayden Christensen is still trying to act? Either he has the best agent in the world, or the entirety of Hollywood has gone permanently stupid. I'm leaning towards the latter.
