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 »
When the team decrypt the contents of the hard drive and display the unencrypted content it can be clearly seen that it is the source code of a website and has no relation to what they are discussing. Specifically it is the HTML source of the the trial page for the MathCode library, presumably the intention was to capture the code of the actual library rather than the HTML source. See more »
[whistles at the sight of Clay's Bolivian hotel room]
Wow. It's everything a girl can dream of. Do you have a bathroom?
No, I specifically requested the only hotel room in the world that doesn't have a bathroom.

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.
