    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. 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.
  5. The first dumb-fun action movie of the summer season has arrived early with The Losers, a loud, loving homage to guns and testosterone based on a series of comic books about a renegade band of CIA operatives. How dumb is it? You might actually kill a few million brain cells just watching it.
  6. Whether you're betting on action or laughs, this is a lose-lose scenario.

    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

    An entertaining action film with no pretension. Fast-paced and not too bogged down by characters' past problems or overblown romance scenes.An entertaining action film with no pretension.

    Not a bad movie, but you've already seen it about a dozen times. This is your average super-good-normal-guys-team movie with your Not a bad movie, but you've already seen it about a dozen times. This is your average super-good-normal-guys-team movie with your standard, requisite gunfights, fistfights and evil bad guys. This is probably fantastically awesome for fans of the comic, but for everyone else it'll probably just give you the feeling that you've seen this movie 1,000 times before, right in the middle of the movie, as I did, and you'll ultimately just end up leaving wanting to watch something a little more original.

    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
