Masterpiece Theatre: The Losers

Have you married or dated a loser before? Have you felt like a loser at some point in your life? Are you a sucker for comic books heroes and Jeffrey Dean Morgan like me? Well this might be a movie for you. Hollywood has done it again with in the comic book turned movie adaptation idea. Formerly based on the hit DC comic book series, "The Losers" are members of a special, highly-trained U.S operative unit led by Franklin Cray (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). In the movie, they are transported to a modern Bolivian jungle to do the dirty work for the United States government. Somehow, they are betrayed by some big shot (by the name of Max) within the government and are left for dead.

Will these bad ass rebels let the pain go away and live their lives as "Losers" ? Absolutely not. This is an action-packed movie for crying out loud! With the help of Aisha (Zoe Saldana), the group seeks its much needed revenge on the very system that turned against them. I have not read the comic books, but let's just say this movie is a bit reminiscent of the 1980s "A-Team" TV series, in some respects. You have your daredevil team leader, followed by your hot chick, pretty boy, gadget expect, sniper extraordinaire, and other characters that fall in between. Ironically, this movie, which opens in theaters April 23th, comes out about two months before the "A Team" movie! Ha, Karma does have a funny way of revealing itself in the movie business.

Expect lots of action, hilarious one-liners, and a budding, sexual romance between Zoe's and Jeffrey's characters. Have you not seen Morgan on Grey's Anatomy? I already seen the trailer online and on TV, so trust me. Hollywood has a way of putting a sex scene or two in almost every movie nowadays. I think it is highly uncreative, but it is a definitive method of getting the horny guys into the movie theaters. Also, Chris Evans from the "Fantastic Four" movie franchise and British actor Idris Elba also star in the movie so you know it will be pure comedy and entertainment! Did I say, Jeffrey Dean Morgan will play a bad boy? *Faints* So watch this movie if you do not want to watch a clever, cheesy, yet action-packed alternative to the "A-Team" movie. (Trust me, I already know the "A-Team" movie will not live up to the cult TV classics, so do not hold your breath!) "The Losers" opens nationwide April 23th! Watch the official movie trailer here!
