YMMV: The Losers
  • Adaptation Decay: The comic was a fast-paced, action-packed story of revenge and CIA dark secrets, with some levity. The film is more of an action-comedy with less emphasis on dirty deeds. Max is made into less of a mystery, and Aisha is also toned down. It comes from condensing a 30+ issue comic into a single film.
  • Angst? What Angst?: In the movie, the rest of team doesn't react at all to Roque's betrayal beyond a split second of Cougar looking confused. They must have been really close.
  • Awesome Music: The entire film. They used "Black Betty" and "Don't Stop Believin'."
  • Ear Worm: "You are a fever, you are a fever, you ain't born typical..."
  • Heartwarming Moments: The Losers getting Pooch to the birth of his son.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight
  • Ho Yay:
    • Cougar and Jensen (in the film at least)
      • They have their moments in the comics as well.
    Jensen: I ain't never felt more heterosexual in my entire life an' you gotta go spoil it!
    • The movie actually gives more canon support to Roque and Clay.
      • Roque goes very jealous boyfriend-y when Clay and Aisha get close.
      • When Aisha asks Clay about the Losers' plans, post-Max, and asks if Clay has any family to go back to, Clay responds with
    Clay: I got Roque!
  • Magnificent Bastard: This sums up Max.
  • Moment Of Awesome: Can we really list them all? You can pretty much just close your eyes, fast forward a bit, stop, and land on one in the film.
  • Moral Event Horizon: What moral event horizon? Max blew right through it before the movie even started, and seems contemptuous of those who haven't.
  • Stoic Woobie: Cougar.
  • Tear Jerker: The children. Those poor, sweet children...
    • And the teddy bear...
  • Too Cool to Live: Cougar.
