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

TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS :

“..yet there is a touching sincerity to the entire enterprise, its lumpiness coming from a desire not to make things up, and if you can put away your cynicism, which I clearly am struggling with, the acting might win you over too..”
by Steve Morrissey [MovieSteve]

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
