Cats man, not to be trusted

Running Time: 98 minutes

PG – 13

Sylvain Wright (Stomp the Yard)  directs the explosive The Losers (2010), which is based on the DC/Vertigo comic book series.

The film features a concoction of revenge, love, action and comedy- always an entertaining mix. The Losers features the likes of  Zoe Saldana (Avatar), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (P.S. I Love You), Columbus Short (Stomp the Yard), Idris Alba (Obsessed), Oscar Jaeneda (Che: Part Two), and Chris Evans (Fantastic Four). Chris Evans does a solid job of providing comic relief, as does Zoe Saldana as bad girl Aisha, although her character strongly resembles that of Angelina Jolie’s Fox from Wanted (2008).

The Long and Short:The Losers is a good start to the film season of Summer of 2010.

My Recommendation: You definitely could wait for the TV premiere.

Favourite Scene: Chris Evans’s fake shooting turning into real shooting at just the right time.

Verdict:  C+
