YMMV / The Losers

Go To

  • 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'."
  • Complete Monster: Max is a high-ranking American government operative, whose ultimate goal is securing American, and by extension his own, power. Max orders a black ops team, the titular "Losers," to target a Bolivian drug lord who found out Max's plans' compound for an airstrike, not caring about the fact that there are dozens of children inside. The Losers save the children, however the kids are murdered when Max orders The Losers' helicopter, believing them to be on board, destroyed. Max commissions a group of scientists to build him sonic weapons called "Snukes," and plans on selling them to groups he knows will use them to start wars. Max regularly kills anyone who inconveniences him, from shooting a woman for stumbling while shading him from the sun, to murdering an entire group of his own soldiers for knowing too much about his plans. Acquiring the Snukes, Max sets one to destroy L.A., kills all of the scientists who made the weapon, plans to frame them for the city's destruction, and, when confronted by The Losers, tosses the remote deactivator into the ocean to give himself time to escape, abandoning his allies in the process.
  • Ear Worm: "You are a fever, you are a fever, you ain't born typical..."
    • "Dooon't stop... Belieeevin'."
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Jensen in the movie, thanks to Chris Evans' hilarious performance and the 'telekinesis' scene.
  • 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!
  • 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.
