In a more just universe, The Losers would have done the kind of business the disappointingly shoddy Expendables did and kickstarted a series, but in this one it pretty much came and went unnoticed in the US and was a complete box-office disaster just about everywhere else. Which is a shame, because it's a terrific comicbook action movie that manages to be stylish without being incomprehensible and delivers satisfying action scenes even if it's not in the business of offering surprises. The Losers aren't superheroes but a modern-day A-Team who get set up after taking out a Bolivian druglord on his home turf and, as mercenaries for hire, try to make enough money to get back to the States, find the mysterious Max who `killed' them and deliver some payback. Not exactly rewriting the action movie playbook, it's true, but this does it with wit and panache in a globetrotting plot (well, Bolivia, Dubai and some of the lower American states) that belies its relatively low budget and makes its ensemble of hardboiled wisecracking heroes worth rooting for.

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.

So, the eponymous 'Losers' are a unit of disavowed, left-for-dead soldiers, betrayed by their government in an effort to cover up their morally dubious actions in Bolivia. They swear to wreak havoc on the man that betrayed them, an agent known only as "Max" and they will have their revenge, even if it requires the ultimate sacrifice.

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!!).

This looks at first like a boring, bland action film, and in some respects it is. But it's self-aware, moving and funny.

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 Losers is about a team of elite soldiers, double-crossed and left for dead on foreign soil. Don't you just hate it when that happens? Therefore, they must hunt down and blow up everything. Well, the probably refine it to those responsible for their situation, but they pretty much blow up everything in their path.

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.
