The Losers - Purple Reels Review

________The Losers______

Directed by Sylvain White Written by Peter Berg (screenplay) and
James Vanderbilt (screenplay), Cinematography by
Scott Kevan, Film Editing by

Starring: Jeffrey Dean Morgan as "Clay", Zoe Saldana "Aisha",
Chris Evans as "Jensen", Idris Elba as "Roque",Columbus Short as "Pooch", and
Óscar Jaenada as "Cougar"

Members of a CIA unit are targeted for assassination and betrayed. The whole movie is about them taking revenge on the. The action packed comedy is based on a DC comic and so it's supposed to be funny right? The humor was a little off. It always went further than necessary. The cinematography was excellent. They played off of the fact that the movie was based on a comic. You'll notice that in the transitional establishing shots when moving to the next scene. The introduction of each character was interesting as well. The most intense scene was the initial meeting of Aisha ( Zoe Saldana) & Clay (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) who carry the movie for the most part. In the hotel scene their egos mesh as they go at it. The way the fight is set up is very suggestive and gives a hint of sexual connection. It was very reminiscent of the classic slow motion effect used in the movie "The Matrix." There were some really dead parts of the movie but the end really takes the cake. Slyvain White does an excellent job at directing the movie but it really does suck when the script is not as good as it could be. He has also directed films such as "Stomp the Yard" (2007), "I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer" (2006), "Trios 3: The Escort" (2004) etc. So he has worked with Columbus Short before. He worked with what he was given and created a masterpiece as far as the visual aspect is concerned. It was an ok movie but if you're trying to decide whether to spend your money at the theater I'd recommend waiting for it to come out on DVD. Still a great movie just not worth the money. Especially with the rise in the price of tickets these days.

Zoe Saldana takes the stage!

Born June 19, 1978 in New Jersey. You may remember her from movies like "Drumline" (2002), "Guess Who" (2005), and "Avatar" (2009) etc. Saldana is definitely taking center stage at a fast pace. She is also in "Death at a Funeral" (2010) which premiered April 16, 2010. In "The Losers" she really carries the movie as far as acting is concerned. Her performance was great and very believable. Keep your eye on Saldana she is going places! Stay tuned for her role in "Takers" (2010) and "Untitled Star Trek Sequel" (2012).

Little known facts about Saldana

To prepare her role in Star Trek (2009) she met with Nichelle Nichols who played the same character in the original series.

Admires Whoopi Goldberg and Angelina Jolie.

Did an intense nonstop six-month preparation for Avatar (2009) including martial arts, archery and horseback riding.

Likes to play strong female characters. And said in a interview with a Danish film-site that she was really looking forward to evolve her character of Uhura into a stronger, kick-ass lady in future Star Trek (2009) sequels.

Says she's a sci-fi geek who just happens to dress nice.

I bet you didn't know...

Originally the project was going to be written and directed by Peter Berg. James Vanderbilt took over scripting duties after the first draft. Tim Story was also attached to direct for a while.


As always remember to be "REEL" and stay on the MOVE!
