Ask Vulture: Which of 2010’s Identical-Seeming Mercenary Movies Is Right for You?


Arriving in theaters this weekend is The Losers, starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Idris Elba, and Chris Evans as members of a ragtag team of soldiers who turn mercenary after they're betrayed and left for dead in enemy territory — which is not to be (but inevitably will be!) confused with The A-Team and The Expendables, both of which are due this summer and have the exact same premise. With such a wealth of indiscernible eighties-style soldiers-of-fortune films in 2010, how's a person to allot their mercenary-movie budget? Vulture has devised a fail-safe, flowchart-based guide to help determine which one is right for you.
