Director Sylvain White keeps things true to the original comic series with respectable action scenes and a humourous script. The movie starts with "The Losers" being sent for a search and destroy mission in Bolivia. Double crossed by a mysterious insider known only as "Max" and all presumed dead, they stay in Bolivia until they meet sexy but dangerous Aisha (Zoe Saldana) who appears out of nowhere to strike a deal with them. The table turns when "The Losers" join forces with Aisha to track down "Max" and to get back their lives.

Who are The Losers anyway? They are a highly skilled team of U. S. Special Forces, consisting of Clay (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) - operational control; Jensen (Chris Evans) - communications and tech; Roque (Idris Elba) - demo and tactical; Pooch (Columbus Short) - transportation and heavy weapons and Cougar (Oscar Jaenada) as a long-range shooter.

Out of the five losers, Jensen's character acted by Chris Evans stands out the most. He is definitely at ease portraying a computer whiz who provides most of the laughter in the movie with his lame jokes at rather inappropriate times. He might be a geek in this movie but he sure has kept his body buff! His moment to shine was when he is sent in to company to steal some information all on his own.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays Clay, the Colonel whose weakness is women. Being forced to hide in Bolivia as a fugitive, he suffers some identity loss as well. However, Jason Patric as Max the mysterious villain is unconvincing. He walks around wearing an immaculate suit with a glove on his left hand while ordering his minions around. This character is a bit unreal as a cold-blooded killer who wants the world to be in chaos.

"The Losers" focuses more on expanding their characters than delivering one action scene after another without much story. Each character has their own moments and just like in the comics, the good guys always wins even though they might be overpowered. The movie has it all - action crime fighting, steamy bedroom scenes, comical scenes and funny dialogue. However, even though it caters to a male audience, the action scenes are not that heavy duty. Watch this if you are looking for a lighter action movie or if you are a fan of Chris Evans.
