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 mathematica functions. See more »
Near the beginning when Max, Wade, and the woman holding Max's umbrella are walking down the beach Max uses Wade's Colt XSE 1911(single action semi-auto) to shoot the woman for almost dropping the umbrella. After he fires the round the, hammer of the gun is decocked (hammer is down, resting on the pin). There is no decocker on a 1911 and he clearly doesn't it decock it. Once a round is fired the hammer is always back afterwards. See more »
Okay, so five dead men hijacked you, Wade. Did you happen to find out who's behind them?
Not the CIA, NSA, Special Ops...
Yeah, I'm aware it's not us.

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.
