The "Indians" in the movie are clearly not Indian. A portion of the movie was shot in Puerto Rico and most likely the actors were Puerto Rican. See more »

User Reviews

Comic book action that is a lot of fun and really worth watching
19 May 2013 | by rocdoc2004See all my reviews

This is not an A-list movie and it doesn't have A-list actors. But you know what? I thought it was a lot of fun! Likable good guys and despicable bad guys. A good story line with side line stories and a nice twist here and there. Great stuff.

I'm guessing it was based on a comic book, because they always make great movies. And the comic book flashes kinda made it obvious... But the best part of this movie? Well I've watched some A-list movies and they off the bad guy really poorly. But the offing of the bad guy in The Losers was worthy of appreciation! Once again, great stuff.

I really enjoyed this movie and I reckon if you accept it as a comic book action flick, you'll enjoy it, too. 8+/10
