Just endless stunts. Dispiriting.

Only the strangely coy approach to violence (deaths are nearly all offscreen), leaves an odd aftertaste, but not enough to taint the big dumb fun.

It's like being given the finger for 90 minutes.

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.

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.

It was comic booky enough that I just enjoyed it.
April 23, 2010
There is plenty of good-guys-vs.-rotten-apple tension here.
April 23, 2010
Compensates for the mindlessness of its story by filling it with all kinds of clever, playful, stylish flourishes.
April 23, 2010
The manufacturer's date might be relatively recent, but almost all the ideas and moves are definitely older than the likable cast members.

How dumb is it? You might actually kill a few million brain cells just watching it. Some groups may even want to consider inviting a designated driver to sit in the lobby and eat popcorn till it's over.

The movie, based on a comic book, features a couple of actors who deserve better (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Idris Elba) and some who deserve even worse (like Chris Evans).

It's strange what a bad action movie takes seriously and doesn't take seriously. Take, for example, The Losers, in which cliches are sacred and human life of no value.
April 23, 2010
The Losers at least has speed on its side -- not to mention a bad case of ADD and camera jitters -- but all compliments end there.
April 23, 2010
An aptly titled, grossly overdone big-screen adaptation of a DC Comics publication, it is, as though we needed it, another symptom of where we're going cinematically, and a movie that takes bilious joy in its own soullessness.
April 23, 2010
The Losers is simply a lot of low blows, telegraphed each and every time.
April 23, 2010
White and director of photography Scott Kevan, who collaborated on Stomp the Yard, have some seriously inventive visuals, which at times are smash-cut fabulous.
April 23, 2010
The Losers -- co-written by Peter Berg, who made the similarly loud and out-of-control The Kingdom -- makes a whole lot of noise without making a great deal of sense.
April 22, 2010
Movies aren't loaded weapons, though sometimes, they do go off when their users aren't careful.
