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

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
