Frequently Bought Together
An explosive action tale of betrayal and revenge, The Losers centres around the members of an elite Special Forces unit sent to the Bolivian jungle on a search and destroy mission. But the team soon find that they have become the target of a deadly double cross by a powerful enemy known only as Max. Now presumed dead, the group makes plans to avenge themselves and clear their names, joined by the mysterious Aisha, a beautiful operative with her own agenda. The Losers stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen) as Clay; Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek) as Aisha; Chris Evans (Fantastic Four) as Jensen and Idris Elba (The Wire) as Roque, in an incredible action adventure that has to be seen to be believed!

Coming off Avatar, Zoe Saldana's mystery woman who hires them got most of the geek publicity, but Jeffrey Dean Morgan, coming across as a combination of George Clooney and Robert Downey Jr., is a charismatic lead who manages to be convincingly hardboiled without being unlikeable, with Chris Evans' techno-nerd, Columbus Short's one-who-wants-to-get-back-to-his-family who ticks all the deadmeat cliché boxes, Idris Elba's constantly threatening one and Oscar Jaenada's sniper who's main characteristic is his hat rounding out the team. But the big surprise of the film is Jason Patric as the kind of guy who has so many evil plots going at the same time he can't keep track of who he's set up or killed.Read more ›
Jeffery Dean Morgan (Watchmen) plays 'Clay', the Loser's squad leader with great effect. He has a perfect combination of surly mannerisms and boyish charm to really fill the character out. Chris Evans (The Torch out of Fantastic Four) is also a notable mention, both of the guys are veterans on the comic-to-film scene and provide solid performances. The rest of the crew are decent actors and they really have some decent camaraderie on-screen building the humour.
The Losers is another one of the seemingly conveyor belt-fed graphic novel movie adaptation franchise. However, it is starting to feel like they are scraping the barrel for worthy conversions as I hadn't heard of the Losers at all before this movie, and I read comics. But don't let this dishearten you, there is not much to pick-up, no reams of back-stories; just good old fashioned action and comedy.
The story is very predictable but it doesn't take itself too seriously so you can easily sit back and ignore the plot-holes or the unnecessary locale jumping (Dubai - Miami - Delhi - Houston: all in a 5 minute sequence!!).Read more ›
The premise is that a group of American agents are set up by the faceless figure known only as Max, and the film opens with a truly disturbing scene that might put you off the rest of the film. Don't let it, though, because you'd be missing out on a real treat.
The Losers knows what it is, and it knows how to avoid action movie clichés, in part by mocking them and in part by being an actually engaging movie. It has the typical setup for an action movie, but its execution is tremendous.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan is great as the team's leader, Zoe Saldana is a strong character as the vengeful mercenary aid, but the real show-stealer here is Chris Evans (now known for being Captain America). He is brilliant in every sense of the word - he's hilarious, he's strong and he just seems to be having a great time, which is something that gets reflected in the viewer. One particular sequence is one of the most pleasant, enjoyable, fun scenes from any action movie.
All in all, a good action romp that's more than what you think it is.
The plot is certainly not original. Everything in the big-budget version of the A-team does it better. However, that's not to say that The Losers doesn't have its merits.
Yes, it's a B-movie, but it has enough decent actors to give it just that little bit more appeal than your average `filler' movie. None of the cast are given enough screen time to really develop their characters, as the movie is quite short, but if you're in the mood for plenty of explosions, shoot-outs and punch-ups - all of which are filmed in a very cool `slow-mo' way, then give this a go.
Trust me, there are plenty of worse action B-movies out there!
Probably a 3/5 out of 5.

Decent action movie with a very solid cast that somehow went unnoticed by me until recently. Definitely entertaining, worth a watch.Published 2 months ago by RL
Sorry. It has its merits, but is completely let down by a total charisma bypass, particularly the lead actor whose name I can't even recall.Published 3 months ago by Akko
Underrated film, I haven't ever heard anything bad about it from anyone I've forced to watch with me. Fantastic cast and great writing.Published 4 months ago by G.Ody
if you fix in your mind this is a comic, it is quite good, but otherwise it is a bit too far-fetchedPublished 5 months ago by Tim
