Set in the near future when artificial organs can be bought on credit, it revolves around a man who struggles to make the payments on a heart he has purchased. He must therefore go on the run before said ticker is repossessed.
A tale of double cross and revenge, centered upon the members of an elite U.S. Special Forces unit sent into the Bolivian jungle on a search and destroy mission. The team-Clay, Jensen, Roque, Pooch and Cougar -find themselves the target of a lethal betrayal instigated from inside by a powerful enemy known only as Max. Presumed dead, the group makes plans to even the score when they're joined by the mysterious Aisha, a beautiful operative with her own agenda. Working together, they must remain deep undercover while tracking the heavily-guarded Max, a ruthless man bent on embroiling the world in a new high-tech global war. Written by
Warner Bros. Pictures
The script is loosely inspired by "The Losers" stories 'Ante Up' (the Losers are nearly wiped out) and 'Double Down' (the Losers track down Max). See more »
During Clay's fight with Aisha in the hotel room, flames start erupting, at ground level, all around the room, with no visible cause. In a room fire, flames will always rise upwards and then spread outwards. If the flames in a fire reach as low on the ground as shown in the scenes, the occupants would already be dead and the room would be an inferno. See more »
Clay, we've got a situation here. I'm looking at a giant vibrating Easter egg from Hell, and no Max.

I think people are being too hard on this movie. It's a big shiny explosions movie, with nothing especially new plot wise, to be sure, but who goes to action movies for plot? Not me! Clever repartee, good looking men (Saldana is hot, yes, but I'm female so ... Evans and Morgan, I'm lookin' at you), a villain landing somewhere between James Bond and Austin Powers, helicopter stunts, big guns, and big explosions. Good times.
Some great locations, good editing (also nice marriage of comic book style to live action style in the credits),decent soundtrack.
The Losers doesn't take itself too seriously, and neither should you.
