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.
It’s based upon comic book characters, and Jason Patric who plays the megalomaniac Max and Holt McCallany who plays his security chief Wade, certainly did seem comically unreal at times.
The believed dead, 5 man special forces team who try to track down Max for their betrayal are very reminiscent of the A-Team in the old television series, (but more technologically ‘savvy’), with Colonel Clay in charge, and the other 4 having special skills to bring to the riotous party.
Aisha brings the team out of hiding in order to prevent Max from bringing the world to war, but also has her own reasons for wanting Max dead.
Her secret is not the only one though.
