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]

NIGHTCRAWLER :

“.."Taxi Driver" meets "Network" in this dark satire-thriller. Gyllenhaal is terrific, while Russo may have just launched a comeback..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

23 BLAST :

“..its better-known cast members-like Stephen Lang, who plays Travis' coach-don't thoroughly embarrass themselves, mostly because the pokey script and Baker's ambition-free direction don't give them much opportunity to..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MR. DYNAMITE: THE RISE OF JAMES BROWN :

“..Mr. Dynamite may finally be Gibney's most psychologically and socially perceptive film to date..”
by Chris Cabin [Slant Magazine]

LOW DOWN :

“..the movie takes on a haunting dimension, even while actively dodging biopic cliches and falling into long lulls where not much happens. Fanning manages to bring soulfulness to a character who mostly reacts to others..”

by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]
