    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.
  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.

Whenever there is too much slow motion or cool guys walking away from explosions the film makes you groan, but then there is always a fun scene to make up for it. Guilty pleasure entertainment, but entertainment none the less. 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
