Barely resembles the comic character


Some changes here and there but is still recognizable


Character look is altered for the movie but the design works


Perfect translation from Comics to Movie

Recommendation:


Definitely a must see in theaters.












In a nutshell the movie seems like a good budget remake of an 80's action tv series but loads of fun. I do enjoy

this kind of band of brothers flicks with each of the guys in the group specializing at some things that makes the

whole group badass. The formula works and it works well in this movie too. Sylvain White seems like he has a

good handle in composing a scene and handling his actors. I love the comicbook touches it's great to have it

acknowledge its origins.

The actor looks like they are enjoying their characters. Especially love Chris Evans Jensen character, he really

does bring the funny. I think it would be hilarious seeing him as Cap opposite Downey's Iron Man. Jeffrey Dean

Morgan's great as the leader of this band of brigands. Idris Elba is amazing its kinda tough to accept what

happened to his character later on the film. About "Cougar" - I think its a rule that snipers should always be the

coolest guy on a team. "Pooch" has a good story arc. Then we have Zoe Saldana's character... we all know she

could act and she really is so good to look at. All of these guys did bring something to their characters, and its fun

to see their rapport with each other. Jason Patrick's "Max" was a bit too over the top old James Bondish type

villain.

The Visual FX does look a bit off at times, but for me I could really just let it pass. I enjoy the movie and accept its

flaws. It won't win any awards but it will give you a relaxing and enjoyable time watching it in theaters.

-ACCESS out. Godspeed and MABUHAY!
