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 unlocks Max's hard drive, the code that comes up on-screen, is actually the source code of the web page for ordering a trial version of MathCore, a program for compiling mathematical functions. See more »
In the first meeting between Clay and Aisha, the bottle of liquor is clearly unopened, as evidenced by the fact that the liquor doesn't pour out when Aisha holds it sideways. Yet later when she throws it at Clay we see liquid flying out of it before it hits anything which could have broken it. See more »
Clay, we've got a situation here. I'm looking at a giant vibrating Easter egg from Hell, and no Max.

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.
