Goofs

When the team decrypt the contents of the hard drive and display the unencrypted content it can be clearly seen that it is the source code of a website and has no relation to what they are discussing. Specifically it is the HTML source of the the trial page for the MathCode library, presumably the intention was to capture the code of the actual library rather than the HTML source. See more »

Quotes

Max: What the hell am I looking at here, Wade?
Wade: Clay and his unit.
Max: "Clay and his unit?" That sounds like a porno, Wade.
Wade: You had them killed four months ago.
Max: I've done a lot in four months, Wade. I'm a very busy man.

A Loser
30 May 2010 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

In contrast to what many others have felt towards 'The Losers', it didn't quite work for me. Yes, clichés are expected in action movies but I expect at least some entertainment and some kind of refreshment, either in the form of action sequences, story or humour. At best, 'The Losers' is your average action flick. Aside from being far from memorable, there is nothing that particularly stands out. Even the dialogue is clichéd and the humour fails to work. The actors are stuck with typical action roles. For example. J.D. Morgan is the stereotypical leader, Zoe Saldana the kickass action heroine who will at some point turn against the group and who didn't know that one of the five was a 'double agent'? I must give Saldana some credits for doing her own stunts no matter how skinny she is. Jason Patric's portrayal of Max has got to be one of the worst performances in a villainous roles. I must add that the final sequences are marginally better than the rest of the movie. Overall, 'The Losers' has nothing new to offer and it failed to keep me entertained for its duration.
