    The movie gets the job done, and the actors show a lot of confidence in occupying that tricky middle ground between controlled satire and comic overkill. It's fun.

    Still, for those who feel that too few movies these days offer the pure bliss of a testosterone overload, The Losers provides an antidote.

    Don't ask for much, and your expectations will be met. Why invest anything as extraneous or irrelevant as "thought" into such a transaction?
  4. There are enough clever bits, in that exploding-bodies kind of way, to inject some fun into the party. White and director of photography Scott Kevan, who collaborated on "Stomp the Yard," have some seriously inventive visuals, which at times are smash-cut fabulous.
  5. Providing expectations are kept low, there’s some fun to be had in the elaborately preposterous action set-pieces, and especially Jason Patric’s campy performance as the movie’s villain.
  6. Whether you're betting on action or laughs, this is a lose-lose scenario.
  7. 12
    This movie -- G.I. Joke, The D-Team -- tries to do so little, and yet falls so short. A clue comes when the girl asks Clay, "How's your steak?" and he replies, "Meaty." Simple enough to achieve in theory, but this would-be treat for cinematic carnivores is a sawdust sandwich.

    i purchased a copy of The Losers,and found it to be such a great movie, that when my copy was borrowed and i hadn't received it back after ai purchased a copy of The Losers,and found it to be such a great movie, that when my copy was borrowed and i hadn't received it back after a couple of weeks, i purchased a second copy. The story is excellent and the cast is well suited for the parts. There is action, humor and I find it a very balanced movie for anyone. I would love to see the same actors back in a second movie.

    in all Losers was more entertaining then the expendables, the plot is way better. I know the plot isnt the reason we go to these movies butin all Losers was more entertaining then the expendables, the plot is way better. I know the plot isnt the reason we go to these movies but the expandables was just plain stupid. I loves the for many reasons its comedy, the characters, the villains. If you enojy action movies this is a must see but if are looking for anything else then action then you will be disappointed Expand

    Pretty good action comedy with lots of explosions and stunts. I hope the A Team is this good.

An interesting story with a couple unexpected twists helps this DC comic adaptation compete with the powerhouse of movies that its competitor Marvel has been putting out. The Losers is no Spider-Man, but it is headed in a better direction than DC recreation of Superman.

It actually was pretty decent until one particular scene that was so fake it was embarrassing. I can deal with some phoniness but this was just retarded. Chris Evans and whoever the villain was were real good though. Expand

    There is nothing wrong with the premise of the film, despite lacking any semblance of originality. But by trying to condense so many ideasThere is nothing wrong with the premise of the film, despite lacking any semblance of originality. But by trying to condense so many ideas into a summer blockbuster length movie it feels rushed and disjointed. The characters are all one-dimensional and the plot doesn't even attempt to resolve itself, which is obviously to pave the way for a sequel. Nobody is expecting much in the way of authenticity with this sort of film but you want to actually feel some attachment to the main protagonists. For a film that emulates the A Team and James Bond it pales in comparison. It is the production that really lets this film down, along with the ham-handed acting of Jason Patric as the over-the-top villain. This is a disappointing blemish on the careers of some very capable actors. Expand
