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

Goofs

When the gang debates at the table after finding the hard drive, the second scene is altered, clearly visible because Aisha's band tattoo is suddenly on her right arm and Cougar's watch suddenly is on his left. See more »

Pooch: Would you rather it was pointed at your face?
Jensen: I know it makes no sense, but yes!
[Aisha points her gun at Jensen's face]
Pooch: Better?

Most underrated good movie I can think of
7 December 2012 | by shamontielvaughnSee all my reviews

With a cast like Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba and Columbus Short, I can't understand why this movie isn't still being talked about. I happened to be looking for movies Idris Elba was in when I saw it and had never heard of it before last year. Since then I have watched this movie so many times I lost count. Zoe Saldana did an excellent job in her fighting scenes (no extras; she put in work). Columbus Short is already athletic so I expected him to bring the action. I knew Idris Elba for dramatic films but it wasn't until "Luther" that I started seeing him in action flicks, and after that I realized he is a very strong and athletic character, too. The reason I keep talking about action is because so much of this film is full of energetic combative scenes. But my favorite part of the film is none of that. I am always tickled to watch the entire elevator scene with Chris Evans. Cracks me up no matter how many times I see it.

This movie should've gotten more awards and attention.
