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

In the shootout scene between Clay and his crew with Aisha in the red hotel room, Aisha kicks the bathroom door shut and then in the shot from the bedroom view of the bathroom, the door is ajar and then closes. See more »

Underrated gem of non-pretentious intelligent fun
4 September 2014 | by mairireSee all my reviews

Will someone please put Jeffrey Dean Morgan in more intelligent dark humor action leads? He is just amazing as a charming rogue leader of the marry band, and Chris Evans is an unexpected comic relief with nuanced performance and expansive range of acting.

Interesting take on comic book based action flick. It never looses a momentum or pace, it's through and through fun, but if you pay a bit of attention, you will see darker undercurrents and rather deep connotations. Well directed, well paced and entertaining all the way through.

There is no pretense here, but that's why the depth of characters and the story comes through in those shining moments. This would be action flick for cool guys and thinking girls.
