Quick film review: The Losers

Apparently this is based on a comic strip that I haven't seen, and evidently it's the first in the summer slew of OTT action flicks to hit the screens, and maybe it's the one people thought would be weakest so they put it out first.

It's also pretty violent for a 12A. Although I objected less than Cathy did to the way one of the bad guys met his end. And for once a traitor was actually a traitor and it wasn't all an elaborate double bluff that was revealed right at the end.

There was plenty of humour too. I loved the bit with Jenson singing Journey in the lift. Watch it if only for that and the line "Do you like the angle of the dangle?" The shoot out with fingers was very clever too.

Jongudmund's rating: 7.5/10 Surprisingly good.
