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
Here was a movie I stumbled across simply because it had been released in 2010. This blog has me looking out for these kinds of things. I was pleasantly surprised when I made the dive into "borrowing" it and giving it a watch. "The Losers" is filled with B-list little known actors and actresses but they perform very well. The movie is not to be taken too seriously, and throws around a fair amount of humor throughout. There are a few moments in this movie where you cock your head to the side and drop a wtf? This was unsettling at first, but it was still overall highly enjoyable. The director, Sylvaine White has a short resume (only four movies previously) and I have not personally seen any of his prior work, however, I think he has found his niche and will produce some good films in the future.
