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 »

The Losers delivers a great deal of pleasure. It was witty, funny, interesting and a marvelous watch. This comedy is like a parody of hardcore action films, so don't expect any mind-blowing depth. Just go with the flow. It's fun.
I hadn't any significant expectations for this movie, so the enjoyment was even bigger. At times the plot might be a bit predictable but that doesn't disturb the ride at all. It's got fast pace, entertaining action scenes and it's fun. Fun is the word here. The cast was brilliant, as well. Zoe Saldana was great as always. And for the first time i felt that Chris Evans (Push-junk and Fantasticless 4) did a good job. The villain was a bit weak though. But descent acting carried the movie for the whole time. All you need.
As long as you don't take it seriously, it is brilliant and you won't be disappointed. Shoot 'em up!
