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

When Max arrives on the boat at the dock he says "home again, home again, jiggity-jig". This is from the nursery rhyme "To Market," and is also used in Blade Runner. See more »
During the raid on the car convoy, Roque shoots an explosive dart into one of the cars. When the dart is detonated, the car moves directly upwards from the explosion. The dart was low in the side of the car, so it should have moved off to one side. The only way it could have leaped vertically was if the explosives were directly underneath. See more »
Did you know that cats can make one thousand different sounds and dogs can only make ten? Cats, man. Not to be trusted.
You know what? Do me a favor - NEVER say that again.

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.
