REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

1.5 of 4

“..Whether you're betting on action or laughs, this is a lose-lose scenario..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
2.5 of 5

“..What The Losers really needs is an injection of postmodern adrenaline..”
by Bill Gibron [Filmcritic.com]
2 of 4

“..Though they have plenty of lethal weapons at their disposal, the Losers are nowhere near as fun as the '80s action-flick heroes they emulate..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
Review rate : D

“..There's nothing wrong with style for its own sake, but The Losers works so strenuously to be cool at every moment that it can only be anything but..”
by Scott Tobias [A.V. Club]
“..there are enough clever bits, in that exploding-bodies kind of way, to inject some fun into the party..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
2 of 4

“..the script is boilerplate, the wit pretty much witless..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
2.5 of 4

“..The movie is a stupid, over-the-top comic-booky action picture with the occasional cheesy effect, oddball casting and an utterly predictable get-that-guy-before-he-gets-us plot, but Evans and a couple of his mates make it passable entertainment..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
2 of 4

“..Like nearly all action movies, horror films, and thrillers in the last 15 years..”
by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe]
Review rate : C+

“..basically, it's The A-Team meets Rambo meets Mission: Impossible, with a mission that's one part trickiness, four parts blowing stuff up..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
2 of 4

“..An appetizer for The A-Team and other summer heavy-metal action movies, The Losers is aimed at a young male demographic..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
“..a busy, unsatisfying comic thriller, poorly acted by a grab bag of new faces and franchise movie refugees, and set to a hard-rock soundtrack..”
by Dan Kois [Village Voice]
2.5 of 4

“.."The Losers" redeems itself with comedic camaraderie delivered by a well-chosen batch of rising stars..”
by Jeff Shannon [Seattle Times]
“.."The Losers" isn't the kind of flick you can call exactly new..”
by Manohla Dargis [NY Times]
“.."The Losers" is boring. It's predictable. It's so, so active, and yet so, so dead..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
2.5 of 4

“.."The Losers" has a couple of things going for it than some of its fellow would-be blockbuster movies of late haven't had..”
by Jeff Vice [Deseret News]
2.5 of 5

“.."The Losers" does a perfectly serviceable job of achieving its low ambitions..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

LATEST REVIEWS

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

6 WAYS TO DIE :

“.."6 WAYS to Die" is a revenge story told backwards. It's like "Memento," except that movie was fantastic. "6 Ways" is the opposite. The cheesy dialogue is written in slogans and the actors speak as slowly as possible..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]
