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
When Jensen enters through the warehouse roof at the Port of Los Angeles to let Clay and Roque in the door, he says "Disco" as he touches down on the ground to signify that he's arrived. Chris Evans previously played Det. Paul Diskant in the movie Street Kings and his nickname was Disco, although he didn't particularly like the nickname. See more »
When the gang debates at the table after finding the hard drive, the second scene is altered, clearly visible because Aisha's band tattoo is suddenly on her right arm and Cougar's watch suddenly is on his left. See more »
It's like giving a handgun to a six-year-old, Wade - you don't know how it's gonna end, but you're pretty sure it's gonna make the papers.

Part of the closing credits are seen in a montage of "The Losers" artist Jock's artwork (some original, some from the source comic). See more »
Hadn't heard of it and knew even less about it when I saw The Losers and I just had a blast! It was a movie for guys who like movies with its mean action and a constant humorous undertone that stays in stride with the tempo of the film. It was hot chix, cool tricks, and explosives throughout.
I didn't dig the slow-mo too much, though. That John Woo stuff just rubs me the wrong way and I find it so pretentiously distracting! ugh.
But beyond that... if you want an entertaining "don't need to think about it flick", The Losers generously provides. If you're looking for something to stick with you to puzzle upon or stimulate you intellectually, search elsewhere.
