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.
If "The Losers" was intended to be a deep, serious, action film it would be a complete failure. But it never pretends or claims to be. It's simply a witty, sometimes corny, action-packed good time.
It's not hard to tell that the movie is a comic book adaptation due to it's cool stylized camera work, over-the-top action sequences, and slick dialogue. While there are a couple of scenes that don't really make sense or have little to offer to the plot, overall it is a tight, well written story. Yes, it uses a few action movie cliches but in a way that's the point. It's intended to be an exaggerated, over-the-top, entertaining popcorn film. There are no false pretenses with "The Losers".
The movie features some good, fitting performances and it's especially good to see Jason Patric doing well in a bigger role.
If you know what to expect from "The Losers", you'll find a humorous and fun film. It has it's flaws but it's entertainment value helps me to easily overlook them.
