So twas a cold friday night and i needed something to watch. And so i did rent The Losers, i recalled seeing the trailer at one point and liking the look of the movie and reading somewhere that it was based on a comic. I didnt have particularly high expectations but hoped it would be atleast mildly entertaining. What i got was a roller-coaster ride of awesome.
The Losers is a film about a secret military unit who is ambushed and fake their deaths in order to go about finding the man responsible. THe film is very visibly inspired by its Comic and the film occaisonally does fantastic flashes from the on screen action into a comic book style freezeframe. The movie had consistently energetic and entertaining fight scenes and the plot and characters kept me interested the whole way through.
Two scenes that particularly stood out to me were the Hands scene and the final scene with the plane which were highly entertaining and fun to watch. Losers isnt a film that makes you think, its a film that makes you laugh and gasp and it does that quite well.
