The Losers Reviews

May 28, 2010
The Losers is a rollicking romp, and set pieces are breathlessly orchestrated, culminating in an overblown showdown at the dockyards, and the banter is riddled with snappy one-liners.
May 28, 2010
A great script, full of gags, that revels in ridiculousness and some OTT action to make one stupidly enjoyable film.

The Losers is a ho-hum scraping of the comic-book barrel, which feels particularly needless with both The A-Team and The Expendables on their way.

Decent performances from the actors involved can't disguise the fact that this is a hollow bauble. But if you're in the mood for cinematic junk food, you might get a kick out of it.

What makes The Losers such winning entertainment is its refusal to take the story or the characters too seriously, alongside a uniformly excellent cast who all step into the shallow boots of their characters with aplomb.

Seldom do you see a film title that doubles as a likely box office prediction. But that's precisely what we've got with The Losers.

May 27, 2010
The shambling plot strings together a series of explosive set pieces rendered ineffective by mediocre digital effects.

May 27, 2010
Powering forward on a punky soundtrack and a don't-give-a-damn grin, this comic-book actioner never stops moving long enough for you to think about how little sense it makes.

May 27, 2010
A ludicrously flawed, over-saturated, B-grade, hyper-action flick that sees a group of ex-CIA operatives getting revenge on a crazed man with a nuclear device. Beware of casual destruction and Gen-Y coolness.

May 26, 2010
The script is sharp and the action from multiple locations so gloriously over-the-top it doesn't matter whenever the special effects aren't up to much.

May 26, 2010
Yet with a spunky, underdog spirit all of its own, endearing characters, explosive set-pieces and a self-aware, quippy sense of humour, it manages to hold its own against the Big Guns.

May 26, 2010
As stylish as it is implausible, this is an enjoyable action / adventure romp with colourful performances and a decent script, though it probably doesn't pay to think about it too hard.

Until its supremely nothingy ending, Losers is probably one of 2010's better summer entries, chock-a-block with amazing action sequences, endearing characters and mildly amusing humour.
May 25, 2010
It isn't half bad: unmemorable but fast and flashy, and less bloated than the kind of action number that keeps John Travolta in Lear jets.

May 25, 2010
Lithe, bold, often funny and full of characters to cheer for, it never pretends to be anything more than a trigger-happy romp. If that's what you're after, The Losers offers plenty of explosive entertainment.

May 25, 2010
While its actions scenes are entertaining, the plot holes and open ending signal a lost opportunity for a potential franchise.
May 25, 2010
The Losers knows what it is and doesn't try to be anything else. You'd have to be in the mood for this kind of thing, but if you are it delivers enough fun.

It builds slowly and rhythmically, and leaves audiences with a lot of fuss-free fun that holds its own, and then some, in the face of the blockbuster season.

Violent, funny and worth the ride. Far from excellent, it's one of those movies that's just good enough to keep your interest. Paul Chambers, CNN.

As an action fix to hold you before the summer explosions start, you could do worse than The Losers. It's no more than an efficient time-killer.
