The Losers

The antagonist in this film is played in a dark, comedic fashion. In one scene, he shoots a woman in the head for not holding his umbrella correctly. In another, he has a man pushed off a building for not following his instructions. He continues to use excessive violence throughout the story. All of these actions are intended to create humor. Do you feel they are, or do they take away from other funny, non-violent moments in the film? Would the movie be more or less entertaining without these portrayals?

This same antagonist also wears a US flag on his lapel. What statement is being made about US citizens by portraying this character in this fashion? When he mocks members of another nationality by mimicking their accent, do you think audiences will understand this behavior is incorrect because he is the "bad guy?" or does he only act to reinforce existing cultural stereotypes?
