The Losers is basically your by-the-number's Special Forces movie about a gang of Ex-Soldiers who are framed by their own government so as not to get their own hands dirty, leaving the good guys holding the bag. Now it becomes about clearing their names and going after the bad guy behind this plot. On paper this should work. It is afterall based on the comic book of the same name. But on film it's a pretty lifeless action adventure that really never gets off the ground. Even the "big" set pieces are pretty weak, even by comparison to direct-to-dvd movies of the same genre.

I didn't care for any of the characters on the team with the exception of Jensen played by Chris Evans. Yes, THAT Chris Evans, better known to the world as Captain America (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/captain-america-the-first-avenger-(2011)/msg7962/#msg7962). He was pretty funny in this one. The other standout performance here would have to go to Jason Patrick.

This is a Skip. I wouldn't waste my time on this one again. You are better off checking out The A-Team (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/the-a-team-(2010)/msg7507/#msg7507), which delivers in every way imaginable.

I watched... I know that. But beyond remembering anything... I got nothing.

I remember it was forgettable?

Is that possible?

The title of the movie was fitting, was it not?
