An explosive action tale of betrayal and revenge, The Losers centers around an elite Special Forces unit sent to the Bolivian jungle on a search-and-destroy mission. But the team – Clay, Jensen, Roque, Pooch and Cougar – soon find that they have become the target of a deadly double cross instigated by a powerful enemy known only as Max. Making good use of the fact they’re now presumed dead, the group goes deep undercover in a dangerous plot to clear their names and even the score with Max.
The Losers provides nonstop and pretty thrilling action, with a stellar cast, doing the comic book series from which it was adapted proud in the process. The movie may not have an airtight plot line, but its enthusiastic, talented actors--Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Chris Evans, and the underappreciated Jason Patric--and the crisp, punch-packing direction by Sylvain White more than make up for it. The Losers follows the gambits of a team of U.S. Special Forces, with appropriately comic-bookish names like Clay (Morgan), Roque (Idris Elba), Jensen (Evans), Pooch (Columbus Short), and Cougar (Óscar Jaenada). They're sent to Bolivia, where they are double-crossed and presumed dead--with a big bad evil guy, Max (Patric), hot on their trail. In the jungle, they join up with a mystery woman (Saldana, a confident, believable action hero) with her own agenda--and perhaps not the most trustworthy of intentions. The action is nonstop, with plenty of great special effects, as the team continues mostly under the radar with both its mission and trying to stay one step ahead of the shadowy Max. Morgan is terrific as a budding action star, self-deprecating in the manner of George Clooney, and a man who (almost always) gets the job done. And he'd be nowhere without his crew of sidekicks, all of whom have great chemistry and repartee, though it's Evans's Jensen who gets the best comic-relief lines. "I'm warning you, I am a lethal killing machine," Jensen intones to a mocking disbeliever. "In the words of ancient Taoist masters, 'Don't start none… Won't be none.'" Saldana brings great sex appeal to her role as the mystery ally. The comic-book nonstop action in The Losers makes it the perfect movie escape--a true winner for fans of action, humor, and a little extra kick in the pants. --A.T. Hurley

So The Losers is a fun, action movie. Definitely worth your time, and the few dollars it costs for streaming. Honestly I couldn't help but think that I saw exactly the same plot carried out on an episode of the A-Team. Which is not to say it was a problem, it just really stood out in my mind. All the actors did a fine job. Zoe Saldona is always good as the femme fatale. She is able to walk the thin line between seductress, gal in need, and confidently holding her own. She has always been able to convey through her character that while she needs help, she only needs it to fill her ranks - not to be saved.
Chris Evans was totally selling the confident goofy geek he can do so well. While the comic relief was suppose to be spread between him and Pooch, Evans was really the one carrying the weight of it.
I would comment on the rest of the cast, but I don't really know much of their work. The only other person I recognized was Idris Elba. It was nice to see him pull of his role effortlessly, and it just proves what a wide well honed range the man has.
To be honest, this is a fairly cookie cutter type movie. I realize that its based on a graphic novel, and that probably has a lot more nuance and style infused in it's pages. But the movie didn't really have any true style to it. Other then to say it was in the style of an A-Team television episode. However, I would absolutely suggest this movie as being worth both time and money. yes, it may be cookie-cutter, but well who doesn't like cookies?
I like action, adventure, and comedy, this movie has all three, and while Chris Evans gets most of the good comedic lines, some of his cast mates get some too.
I've been a fan of Chris's for a while, and Zoe, but Jeffry Dean Morgan was a treat to watch. Its the first time I've seen him act, and he did it so well, I loved his character. I'd like to see him in a bang bang, shoot 'em up western, that would be a good movie.
As for Chris, love the humour, I would kill to see him and Jason Bateman do a movie together, that'd be some funny S+++.
Couple things I like about this movie, is there's no swearing, only one gratuitous semi sex scene, and it's just fun. On a scale of one to five on the fun meter, I give this a four and a half out of five.
I won't give anything away, but I'll tell you this, when one of the bad guys gets it in the end, you're actually happy, you're like, "Yes, die you F'R!" Horrible thing to say, I know, but hey, I didn't write the script.
All in all, this is a great movie, I think, no, I know, you'll enjoy it. So sit back, whip up some popcorn, and enjoy the show, you won't be disappointed.
Fun stunts that seem like things I could do - jumping around on containers, parkour-lite - fun angles of shots on target, all-in-all a good flick.
