An incoherent mess that fails to capitalize on its promising premise, resulting in a film that isn't exactly terrible, but almost entirely forgettable.

Aptly titled comic-book flick plays like an Xbox game made by an ex-music video director

This chaotic action flick features a terrific cast but a script so cliched that filmgoers who shell out 10 bucks to see it may feel like the title is directed at them.

There will be a lot of win/lose puns in reviews this week, but I don't think The Losers is either one. It's more like a participant.

The Losers plays like a grungy, sweaty action movie with all the energy sucked out of it. If while you're sitting in the theater watching it, you suspect that someone might have pumped Valium into the air conditioning vents, you're not alone.

Despite the likable cast, this A-Team wannabe is a bland and forgettable action flick.

Like most action films, the movie starts strong. However, once the audience gets past the first few explosives, there is nothing left but pieces of a charred plot.

Ah yes, The Losers: for once, the title reflects truth-in-advertising.

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.

An action film designed for those suffering from ADD.

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.

The Losers is eye-catching and energetic with a few individual setpieces that are entertaining, but the story doesn't make sense.

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.

Director Sylvain White and screenwriters James Vanderbilt and Peter Berg strain to achieve the pleasurable mix of cheap laughs and expensive action that Lethal Weapon pulled off effortlessly with the help of its stellar cast.

Harmless fun when it works, but utterly disposable.

The film colors its stale outline in ways both hackneyed and mundane.

You know how Zoe Saldana's multiple Oscar-winning film, Avatar, has been lauded for its breathtaking, state of the art of technical wizardry? Well, don't expect to see anything like that in this under-budgeted homage to bad B-movies.

It occupies the middle ground between sincerity and sarcasm, not exciting enough to be taken seriously and not funny enough to laugh at.

Hey, I used to draw stupid comics on typewriting paper when I was a kid. At the rate things are going, somebody will probably make a movie out of my scribblings by 2012!
