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

On the truck, that the Losers use to steal the chopper from the Army, the sign "Git-R-Done" is painted on. It's a catchphrase used by the stand-up comedian Dan Whitney a.k.a. Larry the Cable Guy. See more »
At the end, when Roque is shooting at Clay from the steps leading into the airplane, he runs out of ammo, but when it switches back to Clay running toward him, you can see a couple bullets hitting the shipping container behind him, indicating Roque is still firing. See more »
All right, look. We're not going anywhere until you two squash this bullshit.
Pooch, we're on a schedule here. Let's go.
Oh, "we're on a schedule?"
[Yanks the keys out the ignition, looks pointedly at Clay and Roque]
Roque... I'm sorry I hit you in the face.
Oh. That was good. That was good. Roque? ROQUE?
Clay... I'm sorry I threatened to cut your head off.
VERY good! Wow. Don't you two feel so much better?
I don't give a shit. I say we go watch ...

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.
