The Losers (DVD)
Advantages: Funny, brilliant, entertaining,
Disadvantages: this is what the a-team should be, and could make me be disappointed in the new A-Team movie
I saw the trailer to this and it looked awesome so decided we had to go and see it. The trailer doesn't do it justice, this movie is excellent. This is based on A DC comic following 5 individuals of an elite U.S. Special Forces team that are sent in to get jobs done. They are betrayed just like in the A-Team and need to then clear their names. To be honest this movie strikes me as a fake A-Team, but just as funny, if not funnier.
Story (May contain spoilers)
5 Elite US Special Forces members, Clay, Rogue, Jenson, Pouch and Cougar make up a team that can get a mission done, that is until the mission they are on they get used to assassinate a drug lord and are betrayed by Max.
These men are thought of as dead and Max gets on with the rest of his master plan to cause war throughout the world, that is until these men start an adventure to find Max and clear their names so they can get back to their families, who think they are dead.
During this mission there is much betrayal, discovering people are not who they said they are, people getting shot, explosions and of cause an attempt to save the world from a new doomsday weapon, while also finishing in time for the birth of Pouches baby and the girls little league for Jensons' niece.
This movie as I said before had a feel of the classic A-Team, there is a lot of team work between the individuals who treat each other like a family. There is excellent sense of humour and outrageous plans that manage to succeed. This really is a poor mans A-Team, and with the new A-Team movie coming out it is a good job they released it now, and not trying to compete. In its own rights however this movie is absolutely fantastic and I will definatly buying it on blue ray. I was laughing all the way through as it didn't take itself too seriously, lots of subtle jokes and expressions that just made this movie a classic.
The acting was superb, the actors really got into character which is ideal with this being a group relative unknowns, to be fair this could be where the A-Team goes wrong with an all star cast.
If you get chance go watch this movie, you'll love it.
For some die hard fans of the comic, I don't know how well it links, but after atchign this I want to get the comics to read!!!
Summary: Watch this movie, it's brilliant
