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

The "Indians" in the movie are clearly not Indian. A portion of the movie was shot in Puerto Rico and most likely the actors were Puerto Rican. See more »

Comic book action that is a lot of fun and really worth watching
This is not an A-list movie and it doesn't have A-list actors. But you know what? I thought it was a lot of fun! Likable good guys and despicable bad guys. A good story line with side line stories and a nice twist here and there. Great stuff.
I'm guessing it was based on a comic book, because they always make great movies. And the comic book flashes kinda made it obvious... But the best part of this movie? Well I've watched some A-list movies and they off the bad guy really poorly. But the offing of the bad guy in The Losers was worthy of appreciation! Once again, great stuff.
I really enjoyed this movie and I reckon if you accept it as a comic book action flick, you'll enjoy it, too. 8+/10
