Review: The Losers

Thanks for checking out our The Losers review.

Genre: Action Comedy
Directed by: Sylvain White
Staring: Jefferey Dead Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Chris Evans, Idris Elba, Columbus Short, Jason Patric
Released: April 23, 2010


A tale of double cross and revenge, centered upon the members of an elite U.S. Special Forces unit sent into the Bolivian jungle on a search and destroy mission. The team-Clay, Jensen, Roque, Pooch and Cougar -find themselves the target of a lethal betrayal instigated from inside by a powerful enemy known only as Max. Presumed dead, the group makes plans to even the score when they’re joined by the mysterious Aisha, a beautiful operative with her own agenda.


With Sylvain White directing, I was expecting nothing other than style over substance. And this has all sorts of style. The nice thing about this is that people will not just look at this as “a comic book movie” but rather a great action comedy that also happens to be based on a comic.

Its funny. Lots of one liners and scenes that will make you smile and even outright laugh. Some of the best lines are in the trailer, but there is more to have fun with than just that.


I would have liked to see more of a fleshed out story and characters. It has a lot going for it, but at the core of it the characters are pretty two dimensional – especially the badguy.

A good badguy makes a movie SO much better. This Max is just a token “I want the world to burn” evil that he just lacks substance. Its pretty clear that a little drano in his margarita will save the world, and this makes the adventure less gripping. If there was more to this story that made you think – even a little, it could have been a GREAT action film instead of just a light splodey action ride.


Lots of fun, some great scenes, some awesome action. I laughed, so that counts. I had a great time, but was left feeling there should have been a little more.

I give The Losers 7 out of 10
