If The Losers is aiming to be a big, fun action movie, then the first trailer for the film hits the target. Tons of explosions, gun fights, and punching, they’ve got the action part down. But the charisma from leads Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Idris Elba, Chris Evans, and Zoe Saldana are what sold me as their characters seem to relish every moment of mayhem they cause. Saldana has definitely picked up some star power from 2009 (co-starring in two of the year’s biggest films will do that) and she gets to shine here. Meanwhile, the guys are having fun and it’s hard to decide which one I like best. Evans has those goofy glasses and Morgan certainly has a roguish charm, but I have to give it up for Elba since he has the best line in the trailer. But no matter how you slice it, The Losers now has me hooked.
