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

Originally Tim Story was to direct, citing influences from the war drama Black Hawk Down (2001) and the television miniseries Band of Brothers (2001): "I was looking for a film that would have edge, but I wanted to keep the tongue-and-cheek, where the characters have a little fun with each other." He was later replaced with Sylvain White. See more »
At the end, when Roque is shooting at Clay from the steps leading into the airplane, he runs out of ammo, but when it switches back to Clay running toward him, you can see a couple bullets hitting the shipping container behind him, indicating Roque is still firing. See more »
[Seeing Jenson's Pink Petunia shirt]
Am I the only one who sees this shirt?
Oh, yeah. It's my niece's little league soccer team, the Petunias, they're in the finals, so I...
[the whole team walks away in disgust]
They're... they're in the finals!

There is a scene in the closing credits: the Losers attend a soccer match for Jensen's niece. See more »
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.
