Editorial Reviews

It was a mission no one in their right mind would take: rescue a captured CIA operative from a highly-fortified Red Chinese compound in Cambodia at the height of the Vietnam War. Enter The Devil's Advocates-- a red-knuckled, freewheeling, hellraising biker gang comprised largely of war veterans. Led by Link Thomas (screen legend William Smith) and loosely supervised by U.S. Army Capt. Jackson (the inimitable Bernie Hamilton), the curiously good-hearted gang drink and laugh and love and fight their way through the scenic countryside before retrofitting a slew of Yamaha motorcycles into armor-plated machines of death and destruction. And that's when the real fun begins... but at a high price!

Directed by cinema maverick Jack Starrett (Race with the Devil, Cleopatra Jones) and written by Alan Caillou (Kingdom of the Spiders, Evel Knievel), this wild cross-genre exploitation picture has been beautifully remastered in high definition from the original 35mm negatives."

If you frequented the drive-ins in the late 1960s/early 1970s, you may not recognize the name Joe Solomon, but you're probably familiar with some of the films he released through his independent company called Fanfare Film Production, Inc., most notably his extremely popular motorcycle pictures like Hells Angels on Wheels (1967), Angels from Hell (1968), Run, Angel, Run (1969), and this one, titled The Losers (1970) aka Nam's Angels, not to be confused with the 1988 film Nam Angels, which was essentially the same story, but with lesser production values and none of the star power, directed by Cirio H. Santiago. This film, written by Alan Caillou (Village of the Giants, Kingdom of the Spiders) and directed by Jack Starrett (Run, Angel, Run, Cleopatra Jones, Race with the Devil), features legendary B movie actor William Smith (Run, Angel, Run, Any Which Way You Can, Conan the Barbarian). Also appearing is Bernie Hamilton (Hammer), Adam Roarke (Psych-Out, Frogs), Houston Savage, Eugene Cornelius (Run, Angel, Run), Vic Diaz (Black Mama, White Mama, The Big Bird Cage), and Paul Koslo (Vanishing Point, The Omega Man), sporting one of the more ridiculous perms I've seen in awhile.

Smith plays Lincoln `Link' Thomas, leader of a small motorcycle gang known as the Devils Advocates, who have been hired by the American army to ride into Cambodia to rescue a captured CIA operative named Chet Davis (played by the director himself), something the army couldn't do because officially, there was no war in the region. Link's crew is made up of some real characters, including Speed (Cornelius), Limpy (Koslo), and two, recent veterans of Vietnam conflict named Duke (Roarke) and Dirty Denny (Savage).

This may have been mentioned already - I didn't look - but in Pulp Fiction, when Bruce Willis and his charming wife are staying in the motel, this movie is on the tv in their room.

Saw this in 1971 or thereabouts in the UK on a double bill with Hammer Lust for a Vampire - Ingrid Pitt. Almost fell off the balcony!

"The Losers" is an exciting melding of Hell's Angels/Vietnam War/Hippie
Rebel genres. As such, it is a quickly-made, Philippines-shot, outrageous
hunk of violent exploitation. But the well-written script allows for
interesting character-development, and criticism not only of the Vietnam
War but of U.S. Government Establishment figures, shown here as a weasely
C.I.A. super-agent.

The young film viewers of 1970 could decide which "Loser" they liked
best: the brawny but sensitive Cowboy, the romantic NYC Romeo, the
Tie-Dyed Hippie-Stoner Kid, the "ZZ Top" Southern Bubba, or the paunchy,
balding, racist, but brave Pigpen. (Not their actual movie-names).
The Losers knew their daring raid into neutral Cambodia would never earn
them respect in the U.S.A., but they do it anyway. Then why-- for
patriotism, for excitement, for a chance to kill alot of Red soldiers?
Anyway, this is one Red compound where prisoners are given a choice of
cigarettes or a bag of weed to help while away the evening.

"The Losers" has enough shootings, stabbings, explosions, and wild
Yamaha scrambling through the jungle and grass shacks to satisfy the
most jaded action fan. Remember it was "The Losers" that Bruce Willis
was watching in a motel room in "Pulp Fiction," so it's an icon to Mr.
Tarantino. But you are repeatedly shown innocent civilians being killed,
so it is not entirely escapist entertainment. And of course, when the
gang is called "The Losers," it does not predict a bright outcome for them.

Most praiseworthy is the fabulous photography of the Philippines,
and Bernie Hamilton as the guilt-suffering Capt.

I have been waiting for this movie to come out since DVD's were invented.This was the first war movie to come out during the Viet Nam era even though this takes place in Cambodia.The beginning action scene is awesome and gripping.I first saw this movie in a drive in theater and the opening night had William Smith and one of the women ( Kim Sue ) there to sign autographs.For the year 1970 this was a pretty good movie.Whether you call this a biker movie or war movie it was a pretty daring move by the director to make this movie while the USA was in the heat of the Viet Nam war..On my original VHS copy it has Joe Soleman as director and later VHS versions called Nam's Angels had a different director. I'll stick with the original.Great slow motion scenes..

If you like old exploitation movies, this one is a pretty good. I really enjoyed it as there is a host of 70's character actors and some pretty ridiculous stunts. Oh yeah, and it's the movie Butch and Fabienne are watching in Pulp Fiction. So there you go, enjoy!

A wonderful example of grind Tarantino would love it except for the pro-American bits. Basically Hells Angels in Viet Nam fighting the gooks and the Chinese? Well a tame version of the bikers anyway. Stars William Smith cool actor. Very hokey movie but cool none the less for it. And best of all still entertaining. Check it out.
