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]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
