Soar, 'Losers'

"The Losers," based on the DC-Vertigo comic book by Andy Diggle. Culling and modifying key parts from the series, the film is snappy despite its basic actioner structure. The brazen Special Forces group monikered The Losers aptly translates as a funny, efficient, and explosive unit; its members include cocky Jensen (Chris Evans), decisive Clay (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), and enigmatic Aisha (Zoe Saldana), among others. The over-the-top villainy of Max (Jason Patric) likewise elicits chuckles, but it's hard to take him, and his threats, seriously. The fierce fisticuffs, dramatically shot gunfights, and clashing personalities win you over, making the simple revenge caper watchable.
