The Losers

Rated 3.0

The eponymous Losers are a handful of archetypal hard cases, former Special Operatives framed by a shadowy madman for a Bolivian mission that went all FUBAR. So now they’re stranded in South America without passports, and presumed dead after madman Max (Jason Patric) had their evac chopper blown out of the sky. Why did Max do that? No reason, he just likes doing things like that. You’d think for being such clever boys, they’d be able to think their way out of this pickle on their own, but it takes a hot, ass-kickin’ babe to roll in and pull them out of their funk. Seems Max has his eyes set on scoring a snuke, (a sonic nuke) and setting off a global pissing contest. Why? Again, no real reason. He’s mad. Mad, I say. And so off the Losers go, capping rounds and blowing shit up as they giggle like 13-year-old boys at the mayhem they’re unleashing. I enjoyed it as a matinee time-killer, although it’s otherwise pretty forgettable. Feather River Cinemas and Tinseltown. Rated PG-13
