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

Director Sylvain White was attracted by the realistic nature of the comic to do the film: "What appealed to me about The Losers was that it wasn't the typical superhero-with-superpowers thing. It was based on real characters-realistic characters - and based in reality, like a lot of the European graphic novels that I had grown up reading." See more »
The helicopter The Losers hijack prior to the attempt to abduct Max is an "Aérospatiale AS 332". The helicopter is wearing US military insignia, however the US does not employ this type of helicopter. See more »
I'm clear, Roque.
Well, you better be, because I ain't getting killed by no girl.

Been a long time since anyone called me a girl.
She put a *bomb* in your car?
She was volatile.

The Losers delivers a great deal of pleasure. It was witty, funny, interesting and a marvelous watch. This comedy is like a parody of hardcore action films, so don't expect any mind-blowing depth. Just go with the flow. It's fun.
I hadn't any significant expectations for this movie, so the enjoyment was even bigger. At times the plot might be a bit predictable but that doesn't disturb the ride at all. It's got fast pace, entertaining action scenes and it's fun. Fun is the word here. The cast was brilliant, as well. Zoe Saldana was great as always. And for the first time i felt that Chris Evans (Push-junk and Fantasticless 4) did a good job. The villain was a bit weak though. But descent acting carried the movie for the whole time. All you need.
As long as you don't take it seriously, it is brilliant and you won't be disappointed. Shoot 'em up!
