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

Production designer Aaron Osborne and cinematographer Scott Kevan attempted to enhance the color scheme of the comics, where only two to three colors were used to convey the tone of each setting, so they charted the whole movie with certain color schemes for each location and different shades as time passed("Every chapter of the comic books is a new environment distinguished by different color palettes - so every time we are in a new city or country, the aesthetic of the film changes completely, so there is no homogeneous look. It's very eclectic."). 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 »

In contrast to what many others have felt towards 'The Losers', it didn't quite work for me. Yes, clichés are expected in action movies but I expect at least some entertainment and some kind of refreshment, either in the form of action sequences, story or humour. At best, 'The Losers' is your average action flick. Aside from being far from memorable, there is nothing that particularly stands out. Even the dialogue is clichéd and the humour fails to work. The actors are stuck with typical action roles. For example. J.D. Morgan is the stereotypical leader, Zoe Saldana the kickass action heroine who will at some point turn against the group and who didn't know that one of the five was a 'double agent'? I must give Saldana some credits for doing her own stunts no matter how skinny she is. Jason Patric's portrayal of Max has got to be one of the worst performances in a villainous roles. I must add that the final sequences are marginally better than the rest of the movie. Overall, 'The Losers' has nothing new to offer and it failed to keep me entertained for its duration.
