What should I be doing instead of this?

The Losers (Review)

Entertaining performances try to distract audience from feeling they've seen this story many times before

I realize there's an 'A-Team' movie set to be released this summer, but after catching 'The Losers' I'm thinking I've pretty much got that ground covered. Yes, this is the story of a group of highly skilled U.S. military operatives framed for a crime they didn't commit and out to clear their names. You've gotta love it when a plan comes together, but you don't necessarily have to love the way it comes together. Grade: C.  

Armored (Review)

Twisty action noir needs more grit

The barely topical story concerns a young war vet who, returning home to few prospects and family commitments he can hardly afford to keep, joins an armored car crew (featuring Matt Dillon, Laurence Fishburne and Jean Reno) intent on stealing a big haul ($42 million). It doesn't get too bogged down in specifics and rolls along towards its unsurprising (yet adequate) finish. Grade: C-.
