Trivia

Director Sylvain White was attracted by the realistic nature of the comic to do the film: "What appealed to me about The Losers was that it wasn't the typical superhero-with-superpowers thing. It was based on real characters-realistic characters - and based in reality, like a lot of the European graphic novels that I had grown up reading." See more »

Goofs

The helicopter The Losers hijack prior to the attempt to abduct Max is an "Aérospatiale AS 332". The helicopter is wearing US military insignia, however the US does not employ this type of helicopter. See more »

Won me over in the end
13 May 2010 | by (Tartu, Estonia) – See all my reviews

The Losers delivers a great deal of pleasure. It was witty, funny, interesting and a marvelous watch. This comedy is like a parody of hardcore action films, so don't expect any mind-blowing depth. Just go with the flow. It's fun.

I hadn't any significant expectations for this movie, so the enjoyment was even bigger. At times the plot might be a bit predictable but that doesn't disturb the ride at all. It's got fast pace, entertaining action scenes and it's fun. Fun is the word here. The cast was brilliant, as well. Zoe Saldana was great as always. And for the first time i felt that Chris Evans (Push-junk and Fantasticless 4) did a good job. The villain was a bit weak though. But descent acting carried the movie for the whole time. All you need.

As long as you don't take it seriously, it is brilliant and you won't be disappointed. Shoot 'em up!
