It's a fun action movie with lots of great one-liners.
JSnow
If you like Marvel movies, you'll like this one, which is based off the DC Comic of the same name.

I saw this a few hours ago with a friend, and personally, I thought it was awesome! It was literally filled to the brim with action, comedy, and special effects. Clay, Roque, Jensen, Pooch, and Cougar are part of an elite United States Special Forces team that are on assignment in Bolivia. When they are betrayed by an enemy named Max, they become fugitives and are believed to be dead. They are forced to team up with a mysterious woman named Aisha who may be able to help them find Max. I understand this movie is based on a comic book by Vertigo, but I never read any, so I couldn't compare it. My favorite character was Chris Evans as Jensen, because he had all the hilarious lines. Another thing, was that this film reminds me a lot of 'The A-Team' If you love action, I highly recommend THE LOSERS!!!

On the surface, it's just another action movie. Stuff blows up, people get shot, the bad guy is trying to destroy the world and the good guys are trying to stop him. It's the perfect popcorn movie.

But take a closer look at The Losers and you'll start to see that there's more than just mindless entertainment going on here. It's not trying to deliver a message, thank god, and it's not an action movie with pretentions of being great art. But it's smart, well written and well acted, and that separates it from the last 10 action movies you paid good money to sit in the dark and stare at.

THE LOSERS is anything but. Created to appear like a comic book in motion, writers peter Berg, James Vanderbuilt and Andy Diggle have come up with a script that has defined some strong, unforgettable characters, outlined an all over the place story line, and managed to polish it all off with just the right amount of parody, humor, steamy scenes, and silly dialogue that makes the movie work. It is a film highly dependent of pyrotechnics and special effects, but these also are pulled off in such a way that they, too, are entertaining an even set the audience to cheering.

The story comes across as a bit jumbled due to the many sites where the action takes place, but essentially it is the tale of a group of five men (CIA operatives) who in an attempt to save some children in a fated helicopter escape from a disaster in Bolivia instead are assumed dead when the report of the exploded helicopter reaches the US. The five men toss their dog tags into the flaming ruins of the helicopter and thus become lost to the world. The team is a talented and well trained unit and each of the members has a special identity and gift: Clay (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is the leader (and womanizer), Roque (Idris Alba) is the brains, Jensen (Chris Evans) is the wildly funny guy, Pooch (Columbus Short) is the sensitive guy, and Cougar (Óscar Jaenada) is the sniper with the ever present hat. The team (the Losers) becomes the target of a betrayal in dealing with one Max (Jason Patric) who is preparing the bomb to end all bombs. Out of nowhere comes the mysterious Aisha (Zoe Saldana) who works her way into the group via Clay's attraction to her beauty. But Aisha has her own agenda and the team joins her in uncovering and hopefully destroying the lethal Max who is planning global warfare.

People who don't like this film say that the movie has plot holes or that it's simple. That's sort of the point. It's a good, old-fashioned action film. It has good looking studs, hot women, cool weapons, a bad-ass villain and numerous explosions. It's meant to be a ride, not an Oscar-worthy, mind-bending drama. Enjoy it for what it is - fun.

This is a good action movie, and I was pleasantly surprised by the film when I saw it in the theaters. It keeps the core elements of the comic book series, and manages to not lose the books charm. You DON'T have to read the books to enjoy the movie, but if like the move, the books are even better.

Adapted from the short-lived Vertigo comic series, "The Losers" delivers a solid B-action-movie experience. It's got humor, `splosions, and an over-the-top bad guy played by Jason Patric. A few things holding this film back from true greatness are the over-stylized editing (it feels a bit gimmicky after a while), the fight scenes are fast and frequent but aren't that memorable, the plot seems like it was lifted from an "A-Team" episode, and there's no big name stars to pick up the slack for the less than original characters that fill the film. Jeffery Dean Morgan is the leader of The Losers, and while he did an excellent job as The Comedian in "The Watchmen," I couldn't help but wonder how much more an actor like George Clooney or Russel Crowe would bring to the part.

However, the cast has some major talent with Zoe Saldana (kicking butt and in her underwear no less) and the future Captain America, Chris Evans. I doubted Evans' ability to pull off the part of Marvel Comics' most patriotic superhero, but his performance in "The Losers" has convinced me otherwise. Overall, "The Losers" was a fun action film and hopefully they'll come back for another go-round.

You remember the A-Team, right? They were ex-United States Army Special Forces personnel branded as war criminals for "crimes they didn't commit." The Losers is a lot like that.

Oh, there's different actors of course: the guy who looks like George Clooney (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), the guy who looks like Ryan Reynolds (Chris Evans as Jensen), the angry African-American (Idris Elba), and a motley hodgepodge of other stereotypes (the Silent Sniper, the Guy With a Family, the Tough Hot Chick). They are all good soldiers who are also good at what they do, but when a smarmy rich villain (Jason Patrick as Max) tries to eliminate them by blowing up a helicopter full of children, the team decides to disappear until the Tough Hot Chick (Zoe Saldana as Aisha) gets the old team back together again.

There are two good things about this movie. One is Saldana, who steals every scene she's in. Tough, emotionally wounded, and with a feline menace that she amply displayed in Avatar, Saldana makes everyone else look like a mumbling gorilla. The other is Evans, who's miscast as geeky awkward type - he's too good-looking to be convincingly geeky and too quick-witted to be believably awkward, but he nails every scene. If the movie was just about these two The Losers would be winners.

But it's not. Instead, we get a curiously overinvolved villain who shoots his minions when they make a mistake (yawn), a chief henchman who has little to do, a tone that veers from awful (kids blown to bits by a missile) to cheeky (Jensen hilariously fails to infiltrate the villain's corporate office) to unbelievable (THE SPOILERS: who knew sniping a motorcycle could cause it to fly over the head of the hero and smash into an oncoming airplane?).
